GKR has been selected as a finalist in the Best Place to Work (Contractor) category of the 2017 Construction Investing in Talent Awards.
Now in its second year and brought to you by Construction News, these awards are about rewarding individuals and teams who work so hard to attract and retain the best talent.
Construction News Editor, Tom Fitzpatrick, said:
“Our shortlisted companies are overcoming Brexit uncertainty by striving to attract and retain the best talent in the UK construction industry.
“Each company is going further than ever before to make construction an inclusive industry and pushing the boundaries on their outreach initiatives, recruitment and as the best places to work.
“Our expert judges from the worlds of construction, retail, government and transport will now have the difficult task of choosing this year’s winners.”
Lee Rowswell, Group Director at GKR Scaffolding, said:
“We have always put our people at the heart of our business. Investing in them, and making every environment they work in safe, productive and motivating is what we are passionate about.
“In a market where our competitors offer similar services, it’s our talent that differentiates us and why our clients want to work with us.
Having worked in this industry as a trainee scaffolder myself, this is the type of business I wanted to work for.”
The winners will be announced at the awards ceremony at the Grosvenor House hotel in London on 15 November.
