Unlike most years, due to social distancing the award ceremony took place virtually on Friday 11th December 2020.
On the day, Leap29 were up against some very strong competition, including Seven Resourcing in the 'The Most Effective Pay & Benefits Strategy' category and Franklin Fitch, Hunter Bond and Seven Resourcing in the Best Recruitment Company to Work For (Small).
However, in the end the investment and value Leap29 places on their employees made them shine through as the winners. For the 'The Most Effective Pay & Benefits Strategy' the Judges added:
“Fantastic demonstration of a business that rewards beyond monetary and lifestyle benefits. The judges were particularly impressed with the…strands of benefits…The approach was refreshing and inclusive of all employees. The ownership model is particularly impressive and unique.”
To top the award ceremony off, Leap29 were also named the 'Best Recruitment Company to Work For (Small)', the judges added:
“A fantastic example of a business that demonstrates an authentic commitment to its employees through its people-centric culture and commitment to development, building talent from within and personalising training and inductions. A strong culture of care and communications throughout the pandemic and beyond…”
The Leap29 team were overjoyed with the awards and Nathan Ward, Leap29 Managing Director added:
“Over the years Leap29 have heavily invested in our employee benefits, tailored training programme and company culture, which all contribute towards making Leap29 truly a great place to work.
This year with the pandemic, we were really pleased to still be able to issue significant share pay-outs to all our employees.
Going forward we have adopted a people’s partnership where we have one goal, share the work, share the responsibility, and share in the success. As part of this, our share scheme will continue indefinitely for all current employees and new employees and will be paid out every two years.
We feel there is no better way to unify our team and recognise our employees for our achievements.”
