Aico rewarded for commitment to wellbeing, environmental initiatives and business excellence

Aico has won three awards at this year’s Shropshire Chamber of Commerce Business Awards.

Aico was shortlisted for five awards this year and at the virtual awards ceremony on Friday 20th November, were triple winners of the Workplace Health and Wellbeing award, Corporate and Environmental Responsibility award and the Company of the Year award.

The WorkplacAico-ShorpshireBusinessAwards-20e Health and Wellbeing award is given to the company that recognises the importance of both the physical and mental wellbeing of their staff through management-backed initiatives and staff training. Aico demonstrated the importance it places on wellbeing through the input from colleagues on the design of the workplace, incorporating a relaxation room, games room and gym for staff to unwind. Aico also has a dedicated team of trained Mental Health First Aiders that provide a weekly stand-down afternoon to promote the importance of speaking openly about mental health and reducing the stigma associated.

The company won the Corporate and Environmental Responsibility award for its commitment to sustainability and continual improvement of its environmental efforts. Through evaluating and developing products, services, waste and energy usage, Aico says it strives to reduce its overall environmental impact.

Finally, Aico was awarded the coveted Company of the Year award for flying the flag for Shropshire business excellence. As a leader in domestic fire and carbon monoxide protection, with turnover increasing each year and even doubling every five years. Aico’s core ethos is education, quality, service and innovation, a culture that translates to every part of the business.

Managing Director, Neal Hooper, commented: “We are delighted to have been shortlisted for no less than five awards, to then go on to win three awards, including Company of the Year is astounding. We are a strong company of good people doing their best, to achieve this recognition is great. Thank you to all at the Shropshire Chamber for a superb evening and congratulations to all of our fellow winners.”

The Shropshire Chamber of Commerce Business Awards recognises successful businesses in the county. This year, the awards were held virtually to celebrate the adaptability, resilience and innovation of Shropshire businesses.
