The 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 our repeat winner, Vision Commercial Kitchens, which garnered a huge 48% of suppliers’ votes.
From the pandemic’s outset, the Heywood-based distributor made its staff a priority, and that has continued in 2021.
With the relaxing of restrictions earlier this year, Vision’s board took the decision to continue with homeworking where possible to protect them, with only a limited number of staff working from the office.
Externally, Vision has continued to support its charity of the year, The Christie cancer charity, launching the Vision Miles challenge to remotely walk, run and cycle as many miles as possible, so far raising £2,295.
MD Jack Sharkey collected the trophy and said: “We take our corporate social responsibility really seriously. It is an absolute honour to win this for the third year on the trot and I’m sure the team will be delighted too.”
