Novus celebrates being named Employer of the Year
We’re proud to announce that we’ve been named Employer of the Year at the Construction News Awards 2015.
The prestigious awards, which celebrates the very best of the construction industry, was hosted at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London with more than 1300 industry leaders from across the UK attending. We beat off seven other shortlisted companies to claim the top prize in our category.
The Employer of the Year category is designed to recognise companies who turn the spotlight on diversity and corporate social responsibility, tackle skills shortages and engage with the community.
The panel of 57 expert judges, who conducted a thorough face to face review with all shortlisted entries, commented: “Everything they put in place is industry-leading. Progressive and forward-looking, they recognised what they need to do to be and remain the employer of choice.”
They also highlighted that as a company we take a proactive approach to talent mapping and succession planning, which is something that is “all too rare in a family business”.
We also enjoyed another victory on the night after winning Construction News’ #MeasureUp competition. The competition asked all finalists to demonstrate how they measure success and submit creative images using the Construction News-branded tape measure provided.
As the Employer of the Year, it’s the size of the smiles on our employees’ faces that dictates how we #MeasureUp so we took a series of shots showing off the Novus smiles!
An ‘Eggs’ellent Effort by the Novus Easter Bunnies
Easter is a time of year that can be even more challenging for people and families struggling to afford food, which is why our employees (or Novus Easter Bunnies) across the country wanted to play their part in donating Easter Eggs to local Food Banks.
