VEKA named employer of the year


Industry-leading PVC-U systems supplier VEKA Group took home the ‘Employer of the Year’ trophy at this year’s Red Rose Awards.

Touted as ‘Lancashire’s premier celebration of business excellence’, the annual Red Rose Awards evening was held at the Winter Gardens, Blackpool with over 1,100 guests attending the black-tie event. Graham Liver of BBC Lancashire Radio played host to 150 finalists from all over the North West. Now in its eighth year, the auspicious evening has been described as ‘the awards for the businesses that keep the county alive – the heroes of the Lancashire economy’.

Over the past 12 months, Burnley-based VEKA Group has completely redeveloped its Employer Brand and VEKA Values to come up with a new ethos of VEKA SPIRIT. The SPIRIT values – Success, Pride, Integrity, Responsible, Improvement, and Team – have become the basis for all employer/employee interaction from recruitment to retirement, and everything in between.

Dave Jones, VEKA Group MD, says:

We are all extremely proud to have been named ‘Employer of the Year’ at the Red Rose Awards, in the same year that we also won ‘Employer of the Year’ at the Burnley Business Awards.

While VEKA is an international name in the PVC-U industry, we are also very much a local company in Burnley. With over 90% of our almost 400 employees from the town and its surrounding areas, we take our values very seriously when it comes to our workforce and this, in turn has a direct impact on our suppliers and customers.
