SCOTLAND’S fastest-growing housebuilder, Elgin-based Springfield Properties, has won two major housing industry accolades in the annual Homes for Scotland Awards at Edinburgh.
The Moray firm, which also has main offices in Larbert near Stirling and are building new homes throughout Scotland, have won the Homes for Scotland ‘Best Employer’ award for their ‘enlightened work culture’ in addition to having the ‘Best Employee’ in Elgin-based Aftersales Manager Anne Wojcik.
The company also collected an award for Best Customer Service for initiatives aimed at sustaining their Choices Programme that gives buyers a wide choice of finishings and equipment for their new homes.
Springfield currently employs 375 people and can have up to 1000 people working on projects throughout Scotland at any one time. Springfield’s staff retention rate runs at 98.7%.
With an annual turnover of £74 million the staff have helped the house-builder return profits every year since 2008 and have reached the highest level in the current year at £5.2 million.
Company chairman Sandy Adam said: "You spend more time at work that you do with your family, so you should be happy at your work. Only happy employees can give their best to customers."
