The Rooflight Company, the Employee Owned high spec rooflight manufacturer, has been named West Oxfordshire’s Employer of the Year, having previously won in 2016. This award brings the company’s overall West Oxfordshire Business Awards count to three, having also received the Marketing Excellence Award in 2017.
Steve Webber, Managing Director at The Rooflight Company, said: “I can’t say how proud we are to be recognised as one of the best places to work in the county. When our founders, Peter and Val King, stepped down in 2019, they chose to entrust the company, its culture and its legacy, to its team.
“Since that moment we have worked incredibly hard to build on the fantastic foundations of innovation, culture and sustainability that they put in place. Our whole employee team worked together to define the values, guiding principles and behaviour statements that act as the cornerstones of the organisation, and which have been reflected in this award win.
“We take great pride in the breadth of different employees we have working here and constantly strive to be and deliver the best. We take nothing for granted and always seek to improve, be it through knowledge transfer partnerships or working with Innovate UK, all of which makes it a stimulating and engaging place to work. I’ve been here for 27 years so I’ve always known The Rooflight Company is a great place to work – it’s fantastic to have this view officially validated!”
The judges said: “In a very strong category of West Oxfordshire employers, The Rooflight Company stood out with a staff wide commitment and focus on the business; not only due to the employee ownership but also the approach to so many members of the team engaging and presenting to the judges. The openness of challenge and support for each individual, irrelevant of their role, and the obvious enjoyment of work is a beacon for modern business environments.”
