Willmott Dixon Awarded UK’s Best Workplace Award
04 November 2022
 

Willmott Dixon has been recognised as one of the UK’s top workplaces.

The construction company came first in the Big Company category of the Best Companies Awards 2022. The win is based on responses from an online staff survey along with information supplied about company culture, ethos and policies.

The event also saw Group Chief Executive Rick Willmott named “best leader” in a special award. Willmott Dixon was also awarded the three-star Best Companies accreditation.

Rick Willmott commented: “We work very hard to provide our people with a work environment where they feel challenged and contented, where they can grow, develop and achieve success, so they enjoy what we hope is a ‘career of a lifetime’ with us. Being first place in a field full of famous and well-known companies is a tremendous accolade and one that will spur us even more to providing a fantastic workplace for our people.”

 

Choosing a Construction Career

 

“It’s also great news for our industry, which continues to face a huge skills challenge. We need to tackle this by encouraging a higher proportion of younger people from all parts of our society to choose construction to make a career in. Therefore, standing out like this is important for construction’s ability to attract and retain the very best talent.”

On the same day of the awards, Willmott Dixon was also recognised in The 5% Club’s 2022-23 Employer Audit Scheme as a gold accredited member. The accolade recognises that over five per cent of Willmott Dixon’s workforce is involved with apprenticeships, graduate schemes and sponsored student course placements.
