We are thrilled to have been awarded the Employer of the Year Award at the Northamptonshire Business Excellence Awards 2021. The awards recognise exceptional businesses and business people based in Northampton, ranging from well-established global companies to exciting new ventures.
The Employer of the Year category recognises businesses that have created a stimulating and supportive work environment; and which have demonstrated a real commitment to the welfare of employees, resulting in high staff satisfaction levels and a well-motivated, ambitious and unified workforce.
Commenting on the win, our CEO Emma Dempsey said: “We’re delighted to have been awarded Employer of the Year – we’ve built an incredible team and are always looking for go-getters who challenge the status quo across our sector, with a view to creating change for the better in our industry, as we deliver results for our clients.
“Achieving this success is only possible with our employees though. Therefore, we are committed to the growth and development of our team. At James and James we provide staff with clear personal development plans and enable everyone in the business to move horizontally and vertically if appropriate. In fact, 85% of the management team are ‘home grown’, having developed into their roles from within their departments. Many office-based team members have also transitioned into their roles from fulfilment centre positions. Providing this kind of opportunity enables us to retain staff and grow our team.”
