‘Winning Workplace’ for Burgess Hill insurers
Bennett Christmas Insurance Brokers scored a victory last week as it took home an award at the inaugural BHBiz Awards, which recognise outstanding achievements in the local business community.
The insurance company beat off stiff competition to be named ‘Winning Workplace’ at the event, which was staged by the Burgess Hill Business Parks Association (BHBPA).
Judges Gordon Reay, Grant Ashley, and Mayor of Burgess Hill Jacqui Landriani said that Bennett Christmas received the accolade due to its recent innovations. The company boasts an exceptionally low staff turnover despite a recent rebranding, and directors have also introduced a Futures Board where younger employees can put forward their own business ideas.
“We were thrilled to win this award,” said David Christmas, Managing Director. “We’ve won some national insurance awards before but this was special for the entire team because it came from the local business community that we’re so proud to be a part of. We all love working together in the office and I’m glad it shows!”
The ‘Winning Workplace’ award was sponsored by Mid Sussex business First Recruitment Services. The event took place at the Amex Community Stadium, home to Brighton & Hove Albion FC, on Friday 5 May.
