Stride Treglown makes Building Design’s Architect Employer of the Year shortlist

Stride Treglown has been shortlisted for Employer of the Year at this year’s Architect of the Year Awards organised by Building Design.

This award recognises architectural practices that promote a high-quality work environment for their employees.

For years, we’ve proudly placed long–term human and environmental interests at the heart of our decision–making – from transitioning to employee ownership to becoming carbon neutral and certifying as a B Corp.

In 2022, as part of our B Corp Certification, we formally changed our Articles of Association to set in stone our legal commitment to run the company for the benefit of society, the environment, and our employees.

“From a cultural perspective, B Corp is about investing in employees. It reminds us of the journey we’re on and the direction we need to head.” Sean Peacock, Associate Director, Head of HR

Since becoming a B Corp, we have been focused on improving the day-to-day experience of our employees. How do people feel showing up to work each day? Are we supporting their mental and physical health? Are they receiving the right rewards and benefits? Are we helping them grow through learning and development? Then there are topics businesses might not usually consider. For example, helping employees with financial literacy and planning for the future.

“This shortlist is fantastic recognition for us. A huge amount of work has gone into developing our employee offer in recent years – from evolving our Hybrid, Agile and Flexible Working Policy to launching Fuse, our in-house L&D programme – and we’re proud to say this is just the start of that journey.” – Sean Peacock, Associate Director, Head of HR

Since publishing this article, we have also been announced as finalists for Building’s Employer of the Year and BCO’s NextGen Employer of the Year. Whatever the outcome, we stand proud with the other finalists and are mindful that success is about continuous progress, not just outcomes.
