Over 250 business people gathered at Burton Albion Football Club for the inspiring annual awards and huge congratulations go to all the businesses who were crowned winners on the night and to the amazing companies who were shortlisted.

Commenting on winning employer of the year, MD of Ginho Group Europe, Shaun Gray said:

“We have an amazing team at Ginho and I’m incredibly proud of how they have navigated the last 18 months to ensure supply to our customers across Europe. Winning this award recognises how the team have supported each other and at the same time maintained a working environment that is a fun and exciting place to be, even in these uncertain times.

“Importantly, I would add that this award is not only a huge testament to us as an employer but also reflects the relationships we have nurtured with all our other stakeholders. We work in close partnership with our customers, suppliers, and local communities; and we view them all as part of the extended Ginho team and they all continue to play an important role in our success.”

Infinity IT Solutions sponsored the category and judges MD Simon McAlpine and marketing manager Leanne Kavvadian, who visited our site and met the team as part of the judging process, said:

“Ginho is an outstanding employer in the local area and a business to aspire to. Committed to their people they encourage personal development, offer an extensive list of benefits, and truly care. So much so, they are more like family than an ’employer’… we wouldn’t mind a job at Ginho ourselves! Not only are their culture and team impressive, but the overall business performance and growth too. This award was richly deserved, keep up the great work.”
