OFR presented with the Silver Employer of the Year Award

OFR Consultants was recognised in the Employer of the Year category at the SME National Business Awards in London this weekend.

The event brought business leaders from across the country together as they celebrated the accomplishments of small to medium-sized enterprises in 20 categories. OFR Consultants received the Silver award for Employer of the Year, underscoring the company’s dedicated efforts in people development and fostering an open, inclusive working culture. 

The accolade further reflects the substantial impact of OFR’s commitment to creating a workplace environment that values and invests in its employees as Lucy Kirkup, HR director at OFR, explained: “We are thrilled to have received this prestigious award – and to be celebrated amongst some of the UK’s most progressive and hardworking SMEs.

“Our success is down to our people, and we owe it to them to maintain our reputation as a responsible employer, creating a brilliant working environment in which everyone can thrive. We have a longstanding commitment to investing in and supporting the ambitions of our colleagues – both professionally and personally – and I am delighted that this is reflected with this award.”

The accolade is the latest recognition for OFR as it strives to invest in and nurture colleagues. Its investment in training and inspirational leadership has been recognised with many external accreditations including winning Small- Medium Enterprise of the Year at the 2023 Engineering Talent Awards, and within the national 2021, 2022 and 2023 Best Companies to Work For listing which is based on anonymous staff feedback. 

The company has consistently demonstrated that it nurtures the 100+ team – individuals who are the brightest and best professionals in their field and who are valued for their help in offering clients pre-eminent fire engineering expertise. Lucy continued: “We are surrounded by brilliant people and as we move into a new working year, we hope to find more great engineering talent to bring into our team and help us deliver work that protects people, property and the environment.”
