Glencraft win Best Employer of the Year award at Trades Awards 2013

This month, we met Glencraft, winner of the Trades Employer of the Year award at the North-East Trades Awards. Here is what Glencraft had to say about it.

1. How did you feel about winning your award?

The whole Team at Glencraft are absolutely thrilled & very proud to have won our award for Trades Employer of the Year – it recognises our core objective of providing ‘Dignity through work’.

2. Has winning the award helped your business so far? Or do you think it is likely to help in the future?

Winning the award has certainly helped raise the profile of Glencraft which is what we really need as we strive to become a self sustainable social enterprise. We rely on the trade of both business and the general public to purchase the products our team manufacture on site in Aberdeen and this really does help us enhance our key messages

3. Would you recommend applying for the Trades Awards to other tradesmen?

We would definitely recommend both the Trades Awards ad Trades Adviser site to ensure both the quality of workmanship and service customers receive & that as a business you are recognised for that. It also gives future customer an absolute confidence that what you say you do you really do do!!

4. Do you think you will apply for the North East Trades Awards 2014?

We will definitely be looking to defend our award and hopefully gaining more in other categories, as a Team we are really focused on providing the best conditions for our workers to produce the best products in our sector delivered with the best service possible for our customers!
