We’re thrilled to announce we have been shortlisted for two awards in the 2018 Computing Digital Technology Leaders Awards – Best Place to Work SME’s and Young Professional of the Year.

“The Computing Digital Technology Leaders Awards exist to recognise the achievements of the individuals and companies who are really making it happen at the coal face of the digital technology stack.”

Best Place to Work – SME’s

As part of the entry, the criteria required us to demonstrate to the judges how we:

  • Create a digital culture that embraces employee ideas
  • Implement innovative digital projects with major employee involvement
  • Train and support staff development on digital skills
  • Retain and develop digital staff

We know from our line of business, employees are the biggest asset to a business.

So, we engage with our staff, show appreciation and encourage employees to share ideas and suggestions as and when they have a lightbulb moment.

As a business with Investors in People Gold status, creating a culture where people want to work is of upmost importance to us. We invest heavily in our staff, as they are the essence to ensuring our company succeeds. Employee appreciation and recognition is a priority for us, in ensuring we retain our team of superheroes.

We have utilised our MyRewards technology by implementing our own Employee Engagement platform, called CR Heroes, with functionality including long service awards, instant point code redemption, nominating peers for delivering our company values and a suggestion scheme for innovative ideas.

We are dedicated to investing in our staff. Each employee has a dedicated personal development plan which identifies new training requirements, plus has an opportunity to work with a ‘training buddy’ who has specialist skills others could learn from and attend weekly ‘lunchtime learnings’ sessions.

We are CR Worldwide
