Locally based Whittam Cox Architects have once again been recognised as one of the industry’s top employers.
The practice, based in Chesterfield, Derbyshire has retained its position as a top 50 employer in Building Magazine’s Good Employer Guide for the third consecutive year.
Consultants, contractors, house builders, and other industry professionals were invited to take part in the 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.
Dave Savage, Board Director and Director of Learning and Development at Whittam Cox Architects said: “At the heart of Whittam Cox Architects are our people, they are the foundations of the company and we are committed to providing them with flexible and versatile opportunities and support."
“We pride ourselves in creating a relaxed, friendly environment where people feel engaged, inspired and comfortable being themselves. We’re thrilled to be recognised for our innovative and personal employee support programme for the third year running although our determination to constantly improve our workplace continues into 2018.”
