The new Distributor of the Year – Corporate Social Responsibility category, sponsored by DC Warewashing & Icemaking Systems recognises a UK dealer which is an outstanding corporate citizen.
And that is absolutely true of the winner, Vision Commercial Kitchens, which garnered 35% of suppliers’ votes.
The Heywood-based distributor has always taken its social responsibility seriously to both its employees and their families. All employees are offered complimentary private healthcare as one of their employment benefits.
In terms of sustainability and environmental awareness, the company has invested heavily in Office 365 in order to reduce paper consumption. ‘Team Vision’ has also fundraised over £3,000 for its chosen charity of the year: The Christie cancer charity.
MD Jack Sharkey picked up the trophy and said: “We are very pleased to win. We’ve spent a lot of time on our charity fundraising and our corporate social responsibility areas. It will mean a huge amount to my team back in the office because they have put a lot of effort into it.
“We’ve had a really successful year and we’ve really built the team up this year, so I’m really pleased that they are getting recognition for that.”
