Encore staff joined around 900 property professionals at The Grosvenor House Hotel in London on 29 November for the 2019 Negotiator Awards ceremony and gala dinner and were delighted to collect both a Gold and Silver award in the Employer of the Year and Property Management Company of the Year categories. This is the second year running that Encore has picked up these particular accolades.
The Negotiator Awards is the leading awards programme for UK estate and letting agents and their suppliers and is organised by the industry’s only trade magazine, The Negotiator. This year saw more than 500 entries to the Awards which according to the judges were of particularly high standard, leading to the introduction of a Highly Commended mark of recognition in addition to the usual Gold, Silver and Bronze.
The “Greatest Showman” themed evening was hosted by TV presenter and comedian Tom Allen, with singers and performers, contortionists, jugglers and show-stopping aerialists, thrilling the audience from high above the ballroom.
Remarking on Encore’s winning submission for Employer of the Year, the judges commented that it was: “An exemplary piece of employee engagement, with training and rewards of a quality we've rarely seen before. Very impressive in terms of content and presentation.”
Encore founders Neil Robinson and Stephen Chard said “It is 15 years since we started Encore with a vision to provide lessees with a quality service and value for money, and to still be receiving accolades like these is a fantastic achievement.
“We are immensely proud of our staff and the part that each and every one of them has played in Encore’s success. Receiving both of these awards is recognition not just that we are among the best managing agents nationally, but also that Encore remains a great place to work, so we have lots to celebrate.”
