“We are delighted to win two Lotus Awards for Workplace Culture and Sustainability,” said Joanne White, Aico’s marketing manager, who attended the awards event at The Scotch of St James in London. “Aico invest in staff training and development and encourage staff to work together as well as striving to supporting the local community and creating sustainable futures.”

“The Lotus Awards shine a light on all the companies that are trying to nurture and develop their culture, making it more collaborative, innovation and embracing sustainability, while helping their employees develop themselves – this is how we succeed not only in business but also in life.”
