Effective communication with all of our employees is valued in GES Group. As we continue to grow and expand, it is becoming even more significant that good communication remains an important aspect of our culture.
Each year, we hold an annual Christmas Communication Meeting, where all employees come together for a presentation, delivered by Senior Management, on the developments, successes, and achievements of the past 12 months, and the company's plans for the year ahead.
In 2016, we were excited to win the Innovation Award, and our CEO, Tom Grant, won the Commitment to Ballymena Award, at the Ballymena Chamber Business Excellence Awards. We were also very proud to win the Bronze Award at the national Training Journal Awards, where we were up against some serious competition from industry heavyweights, such as Dell, Transport for London, and Fuller, Smith and Turner PLC. More information coming on that win soon!
We were recertified to Investors in People last year, as well as being successfully recertified by NQA to our three ISO Standards - 18001, 14001 and 9001. Our Apprenticeship Scheme receieved IET Approval, and we were announced as a founding IET Enterprise Partner. A busy and productive year, by any standard!
In 2015, we were proud to work for 83% of NI's Top 100 businesses, and we were very pleased to increase this to 90% by the end of 2016. With the hard work, dedication, and drive of our entire team, we achieved 23% growth in 2016, and we look forward to a busy, innovative, and successful year ahead.
