WCEC recognised as a top employer
15 December 2016
A local firm of architects, WCEC have been recognised as a top employer.
WCEC Architects has retained its position in the top 50 employers in Building Magazine’s Good Employer Guide. In addition, the Sheffield Business Awards, run by Sheffield Chamber of Commerce and The Star newspaper shortlisted the organisation for the People Development Award.
Consultants, contractors, house builders, and other industry firms were invited to take part in the industry’s Good Employer survey last month. It gauges the strength of feeling on the company’s performance in nine key areas including: leadership, corporate social responsibility, employees’ opportunities for smarter working, career progression, the company’s response to current market conditions, the promotion of mental wellbeing, and how likely staff would be to recommend their company to a new entrant to the industry.
The Sheffield Business Awards attracted record number of entries for the event which held in front of more than 700 people at Ponds Forge, Sheffield. It was the first time the practice had been recognised in the Sheffield College sponsored People Development category.
Dave Savage, Board Director and Director of Learning and Development at WCEC Architects said: “At the heart of WCEC are our people, they are the foundations of the company and we are committed to supporting them. We pride ourselves in creating a great place to work, where people feel engaged, inspired and comfortable being themselves.
“We believe that by having a diverse culture, a wide range of experience and different specialist knowledge it enables us to diversify into new sectors, remain agile and respond effectively to economic change. “
