What’s in an award… – Mar 02, 2018
We’ve had quite the time of it in recent weeks! We were named Employer of the Year at the Greater Manchester Business Awards and the Sunday Times 9th Best Small Company to work for, giving us a top ten spot for the second year running.
These are fantastic achievements that we are extremely proud of.
We work hard and are fortunate enough to have won many awards, and we are sometimes asked why we enter them.
There are many reasons. Firstly, they are a brilliant way of recognising and validating the achievements of our team both nationally and locally.
The right awards can bolster a company’s credibility and reputation, plus they are a great tool to get our name out to a wider audience, increasing our visibility and allowing us to recruit more easily. Our industry is a hard one to recruit in and we want to attract the very best. Being able to back up what we know to be true about our working environment is a great way for potential employees to see that we are as good as our word.
Awards are also a great way to enable us to dip a proverbial toe in the market place, see what the competition are doing right (and maybe not so right) and enable us to measure our achievements versus those of our peers.
Perhaps most importantly, they mean we don’t rest on our laurels. Equilibrium and its culture are constantly evolving entities which need to be nurtured and honed. Ensuring we are competing and putting ourselves up for scrutiny by panels and, in the case of the Times 100 award, our team, means that we continue to look at innovative ways to improve the business and ensure that everyone knows and feels that they are valued and important to our success.
We’ve had an incredibly successful few years as a business proving that anything can be achieved if you have the very best people in your corner!
We’re looking to grow our team so if you’re interested in working at Equilibrium, take a look at our vacancies or check us out on Instagram to see just how and why we’ve achieved such amazing accolades.
