Culture Leaders Campaign
Lewis named top SME for workplace culture
The Top 25 Culture Leaders campaign, run by the UK website Real Business, invited SMEs to submit proposals to demonstrate their dedication to nurturing a genuine and effective company culture that sits at the heart of their business success. Edinburgh-based LEWIS, whose clients include Santander, ScottishPower and Dulwich Picture
Gallery, topped the list of the 25 victors.
The judging panel included Jonathan Richards, CEO of breatheHR, Praseeda Nair, editorial director of Real Business, Alex Currie, HR Director of GoCompare, Bretton Putter, founder of Culture Gene, Zoe Jervier, Operating Partner of Talent at EQT Ventures, Phil Lewis, MD of Corporate Punk, and Chris Dyer, author of The Power of Company Culture. They praised LEWIS for ‘exemplifying commitment, vision, and passion towards building and driving a strong and inclusive company culture.’
Commenting on the accolade, LEWIS CEO David Lewis said: “At LEWIS our culture is everything. It guides what we say, what we do, what we believe in, the way we treat each other, what we produce, the clients we work with and the vision we all carry with us.
“I think it’s crucial to remember that culture isn’t something that can be dictated and, although important, it’s not just about rewards and perks. True culture has to be nurtured from the people within the business; our biggest assets. The leadership team at LEWIS have invested in the creation of an environment where accountability and commitment is embodied at every level.
“Ultimately it comes down to each person in the business to represent and influence our values, our focus and our future plans. I just want to say a huge thank you to those people for making us what we are.
“After 45 years in business, we continue to push the boundaries as a progressive company, making our own tracks, not following the crowd and creating joy for our people and our clients. We’re committed to continual improvement so it’s good to know that there’s lots more to come.”
