SPV Management Company of the Year

Partnerships Awards 2020

Vercity won the coveted Gold in this category at the Partnership Awards 2020. Among our successes, were significant reductions in costs for a variety of clients. We provided Peterborough Hospitals NHS Trust with a £225,000 per year saving for five years through our FM benchmarking exercise. We also helped embed its clients into the communities the hospital serves, through the provision of free play areas for children and fundraising for local charities. We helped the hospital tackle issues of single-use plastic, helping to cut costs and improve its environmental credentials. The judges were impressed with Vercity’s commitment to ongoing innovation across a range of initiatives and praised our efforts in adding value to the role of SPV manager across our activities.

We were awarded a Silver award in this category at the Partnership Awards 2020. The judges praised our strong testimonials and effort to support the workforce. They felt that Vercity deserved recognition for its efforts in developing young leaders through its junior development programme and mentoring initiatives. In partnering senior managers with junior team members, we bridged gender and cultural gaps, encouraged innovation, shared skills and expertise and enhanced understanding in the company. Through providing internal progression opportunities, we continue to encourage staff retention and engagement, while identifying learning gaps. As one judge put it, Vercity appears to be an ‘‘attractive employer’’.
