Instarmac Group plc, home to the renowned Ultra Tile, Ultra Floor, Ultracrete and Ultrascape brands, has received yet more recognition as an ‘Employer of Choice’.
At December’s Coventry & Warwickshire Employer of Choice Awards 2009, Instarmac won the top award in the large employer category. The awards, run by both Warwickshire and Coventry County Councils, have said that Instarmac won the award for:
“creating a happy relaxed atmosphere and culture of mutual support, by investing in its employees and offering an outstanding range of benefits which help to improve business performance , and which is exceptional for their market sector”
This is another exceptional achievement for the Tamworth based firm, following their listing in 2009’s ‘Times Top 100 Small Companies to Work For’, and their Best Companies 2-Star rating.
Further recognition was given during the same awards for their employee benefits, where they received an official commendation: ‘Health & Well Being Award’. It was commented that their:
“range of initiatives introduced to support the health and well-being of employees has helped to reduce absence levels and improve morale”
Instarmac’s award follows involvement in a recent ‘round-table event’ run by the Birmingham Posts’ business review team with the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, where they discussed the importance of keeping employee morale focused to increase performance during the tough economic climate.
Instarmac’s HR Manager, Niccei Castanheira, and Finance Director, Tim Boniface, joined the business forum on how businesses, large and small can better tap into their staff’s potential in order to benefit both the employees themselves and UK companies.
