The Solent 250 Awards are run by The Business Magazine and are open to companies listed on the Solent 250, which is an annual listing of the top privately-owned businesses (by annual sales turnover) that are based in the Solent region, including most of Hampshire and parts of Dorset, Wiltshire and West Sussex.
Ascenti's contact centre and headquarters is based in Fareham and Ascenti is proud to have been featured on the Solent 250 list for a number of years.
This year Ascenti has been recognised in the 'Business Culture' category alongside Novatech, Lionel Hitchen and Williams & Co. According to Richard Thompson, Managing Director of The Business Magazine, all shortlisted companies displayed "exceptional capability, growth, leadership and vision."
Although a national company, Ascenti has a highly engaged workforce who work collaboratively through our innovative internal communication platforms. We offer unrivalled learning and development opportunities for clinicians and specialist support and training to managers, to ensure all our staff have the tools they need to thrive.
Ascenti recently launched an enhanced loyalty-based benefits package that includes a range of perks relating to wellbeing and lifestyle, and we regularly share wellness campaigns, advice and resources. Last year Ascenti was similarly shortlisted for a CIPR Award, which was a nod to our employee health and wellness strategy.
Sophie Harper, Chief People & Communications Officer at Ascenti, commented: "We are so pleased to be shortlisted for the Business Culture award. We're committed to making Ascenti a great place to work and our new benefits package, employee awards programme and internal engagement campaigns have all been well-received.
"We employ highly-skilled, hardworking and energetic people who love what they do and enjoy being part of a driven team. Our People Team have lots of ideas for the future and as our business experiences exciting growth, we look forward to welcoming more people to the Ascenti team."
The judges have been interviewing all shortlisted companies and the winners will be announced during a private dinner and award ceremony at the Harbour Hotel & Spa in Southampton on Tuesday 29 March 2022.
