drp Win Gold for Ongoing Investment

Organised by The Business Desk, we recently took home the trophy in the ‘Investment’ category at the West Midlands Business Masters awards, which recognise the achievements and success of businesses in the region. Held on Thursday 3rd May at Edgbaston Cricket Ground, Birmingham, many varying local businesses, from construction companies to recruiters, were in attendance, all who are driving innovation and success for the West Midlands area. We were shortlisted in both the ‘Medium Business’ and ‘Investment’ categories.

Over the last 2 years, we have made many significant investments across all areas of the business including team development, our facilities, and the customer experience.

Over £1m has been invested into our facilities, creating new and innovative working and development spaces. We have invested heavily into the customer experience/education through our drptalk channels which include educational dinners and drpbigtalk, and launched the drpacademy, headed up by L&D Manager, Jez Light. These investments have led to a 76.3% increase in turnover in 2017, compared to the previous year.

Although we have offices across the UK and operate on a global scale, we take great pride in our history and heritage.

CEO, Dale Parmenter, commented, “Although we have offices across the UK and operate on a global scale, we take great pride in our history and heritage. Over the years, we have progressed from a small business to a medium business and, to do so, investment in all areas has been imperative. This award is a celebration of the investment we’ve made in both our employee and customer experiences and signifies the recognised need to carry this on in the future.”
