Porterbrook wins Investors in People Award

Porterbrook is delighted to be recognised in the Investors in People Awards 2020, winning an Employee Engagement Award.

In a difficult year, this award recognises Porterbrook’s continued commitment to employee wellbeing and community engagement. Employees have always been at the heart of Porterbrook’s business and this year has been no different. Innovative initiatives to keep employees connected whilst maintaining essential social distancing measures have been key to maintaining team spirit.

Kate North, Head of HR at Porterbrook, said: “We are incredibly proud to have received the Investors in People’s award for Employee Engagement. Not being able to come together in person this year has made active initiatives for employee engagement more important than ever.

“Our HR and support teams have worked hard to ensure that employees across the business feel involved and informed during this challenging time. I remain committed to ensuring that our approach to employee engagement sets a consistently high standard so that Porterbrook remains a truly great place to work.”

Investors in People was founded in 1991 and helps companies, leaders and employees work together to create better, more productive workplaces. In recognising Porterbrook with the Employee Engagement Award for companies with up to 249 employees, the judges noted Porterbrook’s evolving strategy during the Covid-19 pandemic to keep employees engaged and focus both on their wellbeing and that of the local community.
