HiB Wins Lotus Award for Culture

HiB has been named as a winner of the Lotus Award for Workplace Culture, an accolade which reflects the brand’s long-standing commitment to employee engagement and support.

The Lotus Awards recognise organisations that foster a creative, collaborative workplace culture to enhance performance and sustain a competitive advantage by improving employee engagement. This year’s winners will be honoured at a glamourous ceremony held at The Scotch of St James on 27 June.

HiB has long been known within the industry for its unique culture. A dedicated Employee Engagement team nurtures this staff-centric ethos daily, and ensures that employees are supported as comprehensively as possible. This has included, for example, the introduction of Mental Health First Aid Champions – specially trained individuals who have been developed to identify, and support, any members of staff who may be facing mental health challenges.

The company’s dedication to its employees means that its employee retention rate is exceptionally high, with over 35 per cent of staff having been a part of the HiB team for over a decade.

Emma Cuggy, Customer & Employee Experience Manager at HiB, said: “We are delighted to be recognised by the Lotus Awards. We are very proud of our company culture, and truly believe that it is one of our greatest strengths as a business.

“Between our charity activity, our team building days and schemes such as our Talent Group Initiative, specifically designed to nurture talented staff, we have created an open and inclusive culture which gets the best from our employees whilst supporting them in every way we can. It is an honour to receive a Workplace Culture Award, and we look forward to developing the HiB community even further over the coming years.”
