In addition, we were shortlisted for the Excellence in Reward & Recognition Award, which acknowledges organisations' demonstrable commitment to their people, underpinned by an exceptional employee recognition strategy. Our Employee Empowerment initiative, which enables us to connect more effectively with clients, prospects and candidates through the encouragement of content creation, was the base of our shortlisted submission.
The judges said of the initiative: "This is a very innovative, interesting scheme, with a strong business case and an impressive element of empowering the employee with personalised, transparent contributions to web content. The description of how the scheme motivates employees in a number of different ways regardless of seniority is particularly commendable."
Mark Donlan added: "Out of 340 applicants worldwide, we were the only construction consultancy shortlisted for these globally esteemed awards, which is a truly amazing achievement and testament to our continuous strive for improvement in fostering a culture of reward and recognition at all levels of our organisation."
