For any long-term followers and supporters of Paragon, you will know that we have always been closely affiliated with these specific business awards and in the past have not only been nominated, but have been semi-finalists, and finalists too!
This award nomination is just another step forward for the team. Paragon have become known as being a tight team with ample benefits for everyone who joins, and this award is a nod that Paragon are moving in the right direction.
Paragon’s Managing Director, Rob Spence, comments:
“I am a firm believer that the best businesses in the world run on people. People are the blood and the oxygen that runs through the veins of our company, and we are thrilled that this has been recognised by this nomination for the Niche Business Awards.
We have all worked for questionable bosses, and have been in work environments that are perhaps not ideal. I have used some of this motivation I have had over my working life to ensure that every team member is well-looked after, supported, and feel as part of a family – not just an organisation.
We try to do the small things right; be accessible, offer support, mentor and coach individuals so that they have a strong foundation both in their career with us, but also if they were to ever leave.
Beyond that, we have recently invested in a whole employee wellness company to ensure our team have access to mental health support, GP appointments, gym discounts, and every day discounts also. I hope that in working for Paragon, we will attract and grow a team that are healthy in both mind, and body, and they enjoy doing what they do.”
The Niche Business Awards were established in 2014 from the belief that success breeds success.
Now one of the most popular dates on the Leicestershire business calendar, the #NicheBizAwards have seen more than 2000 nominations over the years and awarded some of the hardest working and successful individuals, businesses, and charities in Leicestershire.
