Hot on the heels of its UK Customer Experience Award win, serviced office provider BE Offices added yet another accolade to its trophy cabinet with a special award for Outstanding Leadership at the annual Business Centre Association (BCA) Awards on 29th November.
The company continued its gold-medal streak, picking up a BCA award for the sixth time in the last seven years – winning more times than any other office provider. The BCA praised Business Environment for its outstanding leadership and contribution to flexible space service standards.
On announcing the special award, Jennifer Brooke, BCA Executive Director, commented on Business Environment’s significant achievements at the BCA Awards over the past 7 years. In 2006 BE Milton Keynes won Business Centre of the Year, in 2007 BE Wembley was a finalist. In 2008 BE Wembley won the award with BE CityPoint being a finalist. 2009 saw BE WestPoint, Bristol take the winning position with BE Watling Street a finalist. BE Wembley scooped the award in 2010 and again in 2011 when BE Central Point and BE Milton Keynes were also both finalists. In 2012 BE Wembley was again a finalist and this year BE WestPoint, Bristol repeated its success as a finalist.
Going on to mention Business Environment’s recent UK Customer Experience Award win, Jennifer said: “None of this happens by accident, quite the opposite. The Directors of BE have created an environment where excellence is expected. With their leadership and commitment, the Directors have proven year on year that effective leadership is not about making speeches, leadership is defined by results.”
“Good leadership improves retention, engagement, and customer satisfaction. It also increases productivity in a way that enhances well-being in the work environment. And no doubt enhances what we all want to achieve, high profitability.”
“For the Directors of BE, leadership is the ultimate team sport. Bernard Klug, David Saul and Simon Rusk, together with their co-directors, have created work environments that engender happiness and where staff enjoy coming to work and performing at the highest level.”
David Saul, Managing Director of Business Environment said: “We are absolutely delighted to once again receive recognition from the BCA. The business centre teams and our head office staff always strive to go the extra mile for our customers and this award is testament to the hard work everyone in the entire company has put in. It is the people who implement the vision who deserve the praise.””
Business Environment is no stranger to award wins, having scooped 36th position in this year’s ‘Sunday Times 100 Best Small Companies to Work For’ and being named best provider of customer service of any UK professional services firm at the UK Customer Experience Awards. The company also gained a three star accreditation from Best Companies for the fourth year in a row.
