Added Simon Bassett, lead partner from Oxfordshire based law firm and V4B Awards lead sponsor, Royds Withy King, ”We were delighted to present CIS Limited with the award for Employer of the Year. We were very impressed with Richard and his approach to his team – it was clear from our visit that the employees are at the heart of the company and the tools and strategies that have been put in place to encourage collaboration and reward support that. It therefore came as no surprise that Richard was also jointly awarded as Business Leader of the Year. Congratulations to all at CIS Ltd.”
Continued Richard Marsh, “It was also a boost to win Business Leader of the Year as I strongly believe that in order for your team to put in the maximum effort, they need to see you doing the same. You can’t expect people to do things that you wouldn’t and I am delighted to receive this award in recognition of my commitment to driving the business on and ensuring its ongoing success in challenging times for the industry.”
