Sytner Group have been named ‘Company of the Year’ and recognised for outstanding contribution to young people at Leicestershire Cares annual awards event.
Prior to the event, we were proud to be nominated for awards in three different categories that covered our contribution to young people, employability and community development; of the three we were awarded for our Outstanding Contribution to Young People.
The award, that celebrates the work that companies do to educate and inspire future generations, comes due to our involvement in fantastic initiatives such as interview technique days – in which year 10 and 11 students are guided through mock interviews by volunteers – and World of Work Tours that see students introduced to real life working environments.
We are proud to have been recognised for this work as we believe that inspiring and helping the next generation of talent is of great importance.
Further to the above, the awards evening brought with it the surprise of being nominated for and winning the biggest award of the night: Company of the Year. We are incredibly proud to continually support and contribute to Leicestershire Cares and the local community, so being awarded as Company of the Year is a fabulous outcome.
Registered charity Leicestershire Cares creates opportunities within the Leicestershire and Rutland area for local businesses to support the growth of inclusive, safe communities and to inspire children and young people in their transition to the work place.
Commenting on this achievement Lesley Birch, PA to the Director of Human Resources, said:
“To have been recognised for our contributions to Leicestershire Cares gives us great pride; giving back to the local community is an incredibly important part of our company philosophy.
“Leicestershire Cares offers a fantastic opportunity for Sytner Colleagues at all levels, to offer expertise to students that gives them a good start in the preparation for their future careers. Young people are the future.”
We are very proud of both of these awards but they’re just the beginning! We’ll continue our support of this fantastic charity for many years to come. Make sure you keep an eye on our news and social media to keep up-to-date with everything that we’re up to.
