We are delighted to announce that Prometheus was awarded the ‘Silver Employer of the Year 2-49’ last week at the prestigious Investors in People Awards, 2018.
The Investors in People Awards recognises the people and teams that make a difference every day, highlighting excellence from across the Investors in People global community. There is a range of award categories, focusing on the main elements of what it means to be an Investor in People. These categories included Employer of the Year, Excellence in Health and Well-being, Excellence in Leadership and Management and Excellence in Social Responsibility. The Investors in People Awards provide the opportunity to benchmark against high performing organisations on a global scale.
Prometheus Medical Ltd, a Herefordshire company, was represented at the award ceremony in London by Kev Gallagher, Prometheus’ Chief Operating Officer, alongside other 162 other finalists over 26 categories. Prometheus was named a finalist for the Silver Employer of the Year 2 – 49 category, along with 9 other national finalists, back in July. The announcement of winning first place in this category was made towards the end of the evening. Mr Gallagher said, “It was great to represent our amazing team and I was delighted when our name was read out as the winner. I feel strongly about how well we look after and develop our staff, but I was still a bit surprised when I was called up to the stage to be presented with the award.”
Dr Malcolm Russell MBE, Chief Executive Officer of Prometheus Medical Ltd, said: “Prometheus Medical is known for the calibre of the people we employ, for our team ethos and customer service, and for the drive and passion that everyone across the organisation shares. We commit to the development of the talent within our company and feel that by doing that we will achieve the best possible results.
This award is a reflection of our amazing workforce and is every bit about them as much as it has anything to do with leadership of the organisation. Winning the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for Innovation in 2015 was a major milestone for us, and I believe the Silver Employer of the Year 2018 award this year will be similarly important, reflecting the people behind the Prometheus Medical brand.”
Dave Swann, Commercial, Development and Training Manager, who joined the company in January 2018, said: “Since arriving in January I have felt part of a family, rather than just a company, and it’s great that Prometheus Medical has been recognised for its commitment to its staff.”
Samantha Edwards, Director of Operations, said: “This is a wonderful achievement for Prometheus! Our staff are really important to us and we want our company to be a great place to work. Our ongoing investment in our staff reflects this and has helped us continue to grow as a successful business – It’s really great to see that commitment recognised in this way.”
Anthony Charles, Stores Assistant, also said: “It’s a great achievement. I’ve worked for Prometheus for 10 years and it’s great to see the company getting recognised for all the hard work we have all put in.”
