Shepherds Friendly ‘over the moon’ with UK Employee Experience Awards result

Shepherds Friendly UK Employee Experience Awards 2020

The team at Shepherds Friendly has yet another reason to celebrate following today’s virtual ceremony for the UK Employee Experience Awards 2020. We are thrilled to have been recognised in the Best Company to Work For (SME) category in which we received a silver award.

The UK Employee Experience Awards aim to recognise and reward firms who have implemented innovative employee initiatives and put an outstanding employee experience at the forefront. They celebrate businesses who have gone above and beyond in rewarding, retaining, supporting and developing their staff, to strengthen the company from within.

Like many others, today’s awards ceremony was completely online and included finalist presentations, keynote speakers and even a magician. Senior Marketing Manager, Libbi Martin attended the event and represented Shepherds Friendly at the presentations. Here’s what she had to say:

“Today’s event was really well-organised, even though it was quite strange presenting in front of my laptop. There was a lot of great competition and I enjoyed seeing what other companies have been up to in relation to improving work life for their staff.

“I relish opportunity to talk about Shepherds Friendly and share the great things we do to keep our team happy. We do an unbelievable amount of work to make sure our staff feel appreciated, supported and satisfied in their jobs. So, this silver award means a great deal to all of us – we’re over the moon!”

As part of our entry, we talked about a selection of the employee initiatives we have introduced over the past 12 months. Our members and staff will always come first at Shepherds Friendly, and we know that the key to happy members is engaged and content staff.

It looks like we might need to start making more room on our trophy cabinet…
