O’Keefe is delighted to announce that its priority on employee wellbeing has been ratified with a shortlisting in the Best of Royal Greenwich Business Awards 2018.
The group has been shortlisted in the Royal Greenwich Employer of the Year Award category which is open to all Royal Greenwich-based businesses regardless of size or sector who can show they care about their workforce and the local people of Greenwich.
Organisations are judged on their commitment to providing work experience and apprenticeship opportunities to young people living within the borough and the provision of training and development and paying the London Living Wage to employees.
O’Keefe has recently completed a major phase of work in Greenwich on a pioneering and award-winning £77 million project on Copperas Street next to Deptford Creek for Essential Living. This is the first housing development to include DMR (Discount Market Rent) apartments which is now set to be rolled out more widely under plans announced by the Mayor of London.
The Best of Royal Greenwich Business Awards are being held at the InterContinental O2 Hotel on January 19th when up to 250 guests are expected at the event, presented by guest host Nick Hewer from TV’s The Apprentice and Countdown.
