GKR been awarded Best Place to Work (Contractor) at 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.
The judges said they were “inspired by the investment in Better Futures and providing the first Leadership Training for Scaffolders.
The application demonstrated inclusivity, innovation and commitment across the entry criteria including health and wellbeing, the GKR Academy, as well as listening to feedback from the Employee Advisory Board.
The testimonials and absence performance showed us that their work is making a real difference.”
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. I’m proud that this has been recognised by the industry but we will be working hard this year to enhance our culture as the business continues to grow.”
