Good Employer? Yes we are!

GREAT NEWS- I just took a call that confirms that we are one of the top fifty companies who will be appearing in the Building Good Employers Guide this year. 

The Building Good Employer Guide is a celebration of the best companies to work for in the construction industry. Now in it’s 7th year, the guide identifies the top companies of 2013 based on key factors such as employee benefits, diversity and leadership.

The guide recognises companies that show:
o   Consideration of employees’ personal welfare
o   Dedication to Employee development
o   Promotion of motivation, training and pastoral care.

It is a great achievement to be listed in the guide and a really nice feeling that it's come about due to honest and direct feedback from our people to the assessors. We thank every member of our team that gave their time to complete the survey so honestly and completely.

The fact that we are recognised in this way in our 50th year of Making London beautiful makes our celebrations all the sweeter- and our smiles wider than ever.

Now let's make sure we're in there every year!

Feet of flame!

Get ready for a new Hero of the week. No, month. At LEAST.

Frank Bastow did it. He completed the Thames Path Challenge, walking 100km in 23 hours 19 minutes.

In the process, he raised £5,580 for the Construction Youth Trust.

AMAZEBALLS, frankly. 

He managed to tweet on his way to keep us updated on his progress and has thankfully spared us photos of his feet since the day. 

and after. Weirdly, he's still smiling.
However he is threatening to send them to us to blog here if you don't donate.

Please... think of our sanity. Think of the children. Think of those of us who have all given generously and should be spared such horrific images.

Now... please go and give what you can.
