Yorkshire Garden Centres wins shortlisting in HR awards

The team at a Bradford-headquartered garden centre group is celebrating after being shortlisted for two national people and culture awards.

Yorkshire Garden Centres Group from Bradford has reached the finals of both the Best HR Team of the Year and the ESG Program of the Year categories of the UK Company Culture Awards. The awards recognise organisations that nurture their workforce, reward their staff, and create an environment that proves everyone is valued.

Yorkshire Garden Centre’s Head of People and Culture, Neil Barwise-Carr said: “The UK Company Culture Awards celebrate fresh, adaptive businesses like Yorkshire Garden Centres that value their teams and strive to care for their career development, mental health, and physical well-being. We’ve got an amazing team who are delivering on numerous People, Climate and Community initiatives to make a difference to everyone working within our six garden centres, and to their respective communities.”

In the ESG Program of the Year, Yorkshire Garden Centres faces competition from Intersoft and Ogury, while fellow finalists in the HR Team Award include Cooper Parry, Cuckoo People Team, Homes for Students, and TrunkBBI. The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at The Sheraton Grand, Park Lane, London, on May 2nd.

The UK Company Culture Awards are organised by Don’t Panic, a B2B events agency specialising in corporate award ceremonies.

The Yorkshire Garden Centres group comprises Tong, Tingley, Otley and Bingley Garden Centres and the recently acquired Dean’s York and Dean’s Scarborough. Otley and Bingley Garden Centres were known as Stephen H Smith’s before they were acquired by YGC in 2022.
