Advanced Scaffolding (SW) Ltd, have won a top business award that names them as ‘Best Employer’ in North Devon’s independent Business Action Awards 2021.
Business Action Awards Judges said they were impressed with Advanced Scaffolding’s open approach to recruitment and its belief that “everybody deserves a chance to shine and achieve their potential”.
The firm has taken on many young people who have grown and matured while working for the business since it was established in 1999 by Matt Bacon.
Advanced Scaffolding is one of the largest scaffolding contractors in the area employing more than 50 people. The company has new build sites in the Exeter, Tiverton and Barnstaple areas. The business also benefits from nationwide contracts with Aldi supermarkets, Lloyds bank and Marks & Spencer, predominantly located in the South of England and Wales.
The business aims to create a family atmosphere, having an open-door policy so everyone feels comfortable discussing their ideas, concerns or suggestions, the judges said.
Speaking to AccessPoint about winning the award Gemma Bacon, the company’s Office Manager, said:
“To be awarded the winners of ‘Best Employer’ was a huge honour. We have dedicated employees who have worked with us learning their trade from the ground up – from apprentices to SMSTS Advanced Scaffolders – a number of whom have been part of the team for almost 20 years. This reflects the teamwork and the family ethos that we strive for.”
