APC Cardiovascular are pleased to announce that we’ve been shortlisted in three categories in the Company Culture Awards 2021.
The awards recognise and celebrate companies who share values, care and nurture their workforce, offer career development, reward good work, and create a workplace environment that is beyond just an office space, even when remote.
The first shortlisted category is for the “Best Workplace Health and Wellbeing Awareness Initiative.” This is for our Wellbeing Week in December 2020 in partnership with Active Cheshire. This was a dedicated week full of activities and initiatives aimed to bring the team together, to focus on teamwork, and both our mental and physical wellbeing. The activities laid on included a 7-day step competition, a virtual cookalong, yoga session, and “virtual cuppa” with no agenda. Overall, the feedback was incredibly positive with the team feeling engaged, motivated, and most importantly, not on their own. It was so much of a success that we are looking to host 4 wellbeing weeks throughout 2021 to coincide with our quarterly company meetings. Plans include a laughing yoga session, and some more cookalongs.
The second category APC are shortlisted for is “Remote Team of the Year.” Due to the Covid19 pandemic, our sales team were unable to visit customers in hospitals, so had no choice but to find new ways to train consultants and nursing staff virtually. This included hosting our very own webinar – “Radiation Protection in the Clinical Environment,” and recording product training videos. Our winning team rose to the challenge and took everything in their stride, to produce engaging and useful content available on demand.
The third and final shortlisted category is for “Best Company to Work For (In-House.)” We know we do a lot to support our team, but having this recognised is a brilliant achievement. Some things we do include monthly anonymous wellbeing surveys to check how everyone is feeling, flexible working hours, an enhanced private medical package, time allowance for volunteer work, team events and tokens of recognition throughout the year.
The final awards will take place virtually on 27th April 7pm, and win or lose, we’re thrilled to have been shortlisted for such prestigious categories, and are proud of the company culture we promote within APC Cardiovascular.
