Sundial Group and its MD Tim Chudley have picked up a pair of wins at the Living Wage Champion Awards.

Chudley won the individual Leadership award for the East Midlands region, while Sundial Group won the Living Wage Employer Champion Award. He has been a vocal supporter of M&IT and ABPCO's Living Wage for Live Events campaign since its launch in the summer.

Chudley said: “I’m very happy to receive this as a representative of the hospitality industry, because I think the sector is one that’s been dragging its heels about paying their frontline people as professionals and the people that really drive the customer journey and satisfaction.

“I think it’s time that everyone in hotels and hospitality started paying their people properly, so I’m thrilled to have been selected as a National Living Wage Champion.”

The Living Wage Champion Awards celebrate individuals and organisations that have made a real difference to their industry or their community by supporting the Living Wage.

Sundial Group was the only employer from the meetings and events sector to have been nominated in the awards.
