A NOTTINGHAM-based firm has been named as ‘Employer Champion’ in Propertymark’s annual awards.
National firm John Pye Property won the ‘Employer Champion of the Year’ title for the way it actively encourages its employees to take on industry related training. The business has grown from one trading site to 22 spanning the length and breadth of the UK.
Propertymark is the industry body which works to raise professional standards among property organisations. Its annual awards mark excellence in the property industry nationally.
Adam Pye, managing director of John Pye Auctions, said: “We’re thrilled to have received the Employer Champion of the Year award.
“As a business, we believe that having knowledgeable staff creates a confident working atmosphere; one in which all team members feel they are making a valid contribution towards the company’s goals.
“It has also meant we have a greater staff retention, which in turn, provides a consistently high level of customer service to our clients and customers.
“We were also thrilled to see Richard Reed our head of the property division shortlisted for the Rising Star award – it is testament to his hard work developing the John Pye Property brand.”
The awards – which were held on 12 May at Le Meridien Piccadilly in London – bring together professionals from the property sector to recognise the achievements of individuals and employers who have undertaken a Propertymark qualification in the last year.
John Pye Auctions works with major UK high-street retailers, insolvency practitioners, banks, lenders, government agencies and agents, selling assets and stock through five trading departments: John Pye Retail, John Pye Luxury Assets, John Pye Property, John Pye Business Assets and John Pye Vehicles.
In addition to auctions, the John Pye Property department provides additional services including residential and commercial agency, property management, maintenance and security, appraisals and valuations, luxury property and overseas property.
