Commitment and focus

The Rooflight Company was recently crowned Employer of the Year at the West Oxfordshire Business Awards (WOBAs), which it last won in 2016.

This award brings the company’s overall WOBA count to three, having also received the Marketing Excellence Award in 2017.

Steve Webber, managing director at The Rooflight Company, said: “I can’t say how proud we are to be recognised as one of the best places to work in the county. When our founders Peter and Val King stepped down in 2019, they chose to entrust the company, its culture and its legacy, to its team.

“Since that moment we have worked incredibly hard to build on the fantastic foundations of innovation, culture and sustainability that they put in place. Our whole employee team worked together to define the values, guiding principles and behaviour statements that act as the cornerstones of the organisation, and which have been reflected in this award win.”

The judges said: “In a very strong category of West Oxfordshire employers, The Rooflight Company stood out with a staff-wide commitment and focus on the business; not only due to the employee ownership but also the approach to so many members of the team engaging and presenting to the judges.”
