The Calico Group’s reputation as a successful local employer has been strengthened thanks to a prestigious win at a local business awards ceremony.
The Group was named Employer of the Year at the 2018 Lancashire Business Awards, which recognises and celebrates business success throughout the county.
The award recognises The Calico Group as a dedicated and supportive local employer, transforming cultures, and managing change with professionalism and highly regarded communications.
The win reflects The Calico Group’s reputation as a forward thinking organisation where people are proud to work, with staff that have the ability and opportunity to develop, and who are in turn best placed to deliver the services that are essential to customers and their wellbeing.
Jade Haigh, Project Coordinator and one of The Calico Group’s newest members of staff, was proud to accept the award on behalf the company.
“I am delighted to be part of such a fantastic company, so it was an honour to accept our award for Employer of the Year on the night.”
Anthony Duerden, The Calico Group Chief Executive, said:
“At The Calico Group, we firmly believe that it is the people who work here that make a difference to our customers.
“We value everyone as an individual, encouraging them to be the best they can be. We have grown to employ over 700 people, with over 90% coming from Lancashire, and we are therefore particularly proud to win this award.
“Our staff are driven by a genuine desire to improve the lives and futures of people living in the areas where we work. By making a positive difference to customers and communities, the services they deliver generate social profit that creates extra investment and new opportunities.”
Hosted by Downtown Lancashire in Business and Frank McKenna, the evening was a great display of the flourishing business environment in the county, and a celebration of the range of sectors doing great, meaningful and effective business practice in Lancashire.
