First Balfour has made the final short list for Overseas Employer of the Year in The Investors in People Awards 2021. In a record-breaking year for entries, with nearly 300 organizations involved, First Balfour made it to the top 10 in the Gold category.
The Investors in People Awards celebrate the very best organizations and individuals from around the world across various organizational, people, well-being and leadership categories. Each year hundreds of organizations from the UK and abroad battle it out to take home one of the trophies to show their award-winning commitment to investing in their people.
Human resources head Carlos Pedro Salonga said: “It is a privilege to be short-listed for this award, a clear indication of the dedication and hard work the team has invested in the business. People first when it matters most. This is a lofty standard that First Balfour upholds. It is deeply embedded in our cultural DNA and is what we believe sets us apart. We need to continue to evolve, adapt and regenerate.”
Investors in People CEO Paul Devoy noted: “Now in our eighth year, it always makes me feel immensely proud to see so many fantastic organisations staking their claim to be the best. And every year, the entries do get more and more competitive and the judging even tighter. Reaching the final short list is a testament to the amazing commitment these organisations are making to make work better for their people, and they truly deserve this recognition.”
