Reconomy, the UK’s leading provider of outsourced waste management and resource-led services, has been shortlisted for the Sustainable Business Award at the 2019 Personnel Today Awards.
The Personnel Today Awards recognise and celebrate the best in HR, awarding companies for outstanding and ground-breaking work in their respective industries.
The Sustainable Business Award is a new category which is has been introduced to the awards programme for the first time. It recognises employers that put sustainability at the heart of their work and deliver a meaningful contributing towards wider society, in addition to a positive approach towards green issues.
A key strand of Reconomy’s recently revamped sustainability strategy is its Social Value Programme, known as RSVP. The programme supports Reconomy’s objective to be the leading sustainable business within the environmental sector and create a purposeful culture within the business.
Reconomy’s HR and Training Manager, Lyndsey Denning, said: “We are delighted to have been shortlisted for this prestigious award. Reconomy is committed to sustainable business practices and we recognise the importance of delivering this not only to our customers, but also to our employees.
“Working for a business with a clear strategy to maximise its social value output has been a key factor in talent attraction, retention and engagement, as people wanting to work for a business with shared purpose and clearly defined values. It is a privilege to work for a business who has this not only as a strategic priority, but also as a genuine morale responsibility.”
The winners of the 2019 Personnel Today Awards will be announced on Tuesday 19th November at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Central London.
