Following last years success in winning ‘best place to work’ and ‘best employer’ at the Brighton and Hove Business Awards (BAHBA’s) and the Sussex Business Awards respectively, we are delighted to have made it a hat trick at last nights first Gatwick Diamond Business Awards.
The winners were announced at a glittering awards ceremony at the Gatwick Hilton with the BBC’s Business Correspondent Declan Curry doing a sterling job as guest presenter.
Judging the entry, Tony Hyams-Parish of Rawlison Butler LLP said “The final three are all worthy winners but Leapfrogg particularly impressed the judges because of the passion shown not only towards their own job but also to the overall success of the company, no doubt assisted by excellent ‘top to bottom’ communication of the company’s vision and universal ‘buy in’ to that vision. For a relatively small business the staff are well motivated and rewarded in ways which one would expect of a bigger organisation. Staff are genuinely happy and morale is good, even in this tough economic climate.”
Feeling rather buoyant after our win (the wine may have also have helped), we asked Declan for a photo. See if you spot the Leapfrogg sticker that we cheekily placed on his lapel!
Well done to the organisers, chiefly Jeremy Taylor CEO at CADIA for an excellent evening. Great venue, good food and excellent guest speaker.
I will be following this up with a further entry about the importance of retaining staff in search agencies like Leapfrogg. It will explain why we take staff happiness so seriously, namely because retention of intellectual property is essential in a competitive market place.
