Leybold UK, who are based in Chessington, UK, have made the final shortlist for Employer of the Year Award 2021 of the Composites UK Trade Association.

The annual awards ceremony celebrates the achievements of the UK composites industry, in categories covering company efforts and successes on an individual level.

With the Employer of the Year Award, the industry association honours companies that invest specifically in their employees through training programmes and appraisal systems.

Ian Dorman, General Manager, said “It’s a privilege to be shortlisted for this award, which recognises the investment we have made in developing our employees and future talent.”

“The nomination alone recognises the beginning of our journey in becoming a great place to work,” says Sarah Cogswell, HR Manager. “We promote a culture of lifelong learning, continuous feedback and self-development to enable people’s potential. All employees have a ‘mission’ (which includes performance and development goals) and take part in our Performance Enablement cycle.

The winner will be announced at the Awards Dinner on 3rd November 2021, taking place at the National Motorcycle Museum. The event coincides with the Advanced Engineering Show at the neighbouring Birmingham NEC, where customers can meet with the Leybold team on booth K50.
