There are a few sore heads at Fat HQ this morning, thanks to a successful night at Downtown in Business' Lancashire Business Awards 2017.
We are over the moon to have walked away with the Best Employer of the Year award, a huge accolade and testament to the dedication of our team, who work hard to maintain the strong and inclusive Fat Media culture.
We're proud to call ourselves 'Fatties' - a term for our shared value system of teamwork, positivity and dedication to producing the best results for our clients.
Along with our unique culture, the judges also took into account our extremely successful graduate recruitment programme, which this year saw record number of both applicants and employment offers. The scheme offers a range of roles, and the opportunity to work in different areas of the business in order to find each person's strengths.
We were also commended for our ongoing support of all staff, through initiatives such as 'Learning at Lunch' - regular peer-led seminars held over lunchtime, for the team to learn about other specialities within the business.
Emma Bowden, our HR and Talent Manager collected the award along with other members of our HR and management team, at a Game of Thrones themed event in Blackburn last night.
