United Kingdom, 29th June 2021 / Sciad NewswireWatson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group (WMFTG) is delighted to announce it has been named winner of the Best Employer category at the 2021 Best Business Awards (BBAs).

WMFTG has always strived to be a desirable place to work, and its teams work tirelessly to create innovative strategies to ensure all colleagues are happy and engaged. Unsurprisingly, the global pandemic has meant that much of WMFTG’s focus in the last year has been on protecting the safety and wellbeing of its colleagues, however, the global leadership team has also endeavoured to continue to make WMFTG an inclusive, enjoyable and rewarding company to work for.

This award recognises WMFTG’s innovative approach to protecting its global teams, rapidly adapting workflows and putting safety measures in place to enable the Company to continue to supply key industries such as pharmaceutical, food and beverage, and water, with essential equipment during the pandemic. WMFTG also recognised the strain this would put on its colleagues’ mental health so implemented a series of well-being initiatives, improved communication and promoted pandemic response efforts to boost morale.

The BBAs pride themselves on having a large panel of independent expert judges who select winners according to strict criteria for each category and sector.

Commenting on Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group, the winner in the Best Employer category, the chairman of the judges said: Congratulations to Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group (WMFTG) for going the extra mile during the pandemic to protect its staff and their mental health. Vulnerable members of staff were identified and shielded, and working from home was implemented, where possible. With many working remotely, the company stepped up its internal comms to keep people engaged and committed, and it ran a series of imaginative wellbeing initiatives. Feedback from staff was amazing and showed that they greatly appreciated the effort the company went to.”

Upon receiving the Award, Andrew Mines, MD of WMFTG, said: “Our team is our biggest asset and we are so impressed by all of their hard work and commitment throughout such a challenging time. We are thrilled that the Best Business Awards has recognised the team and all the work we have done to support each other. Thank you for this award and the judges’ kind comments.”
