9xb has been crowned North Yorkshire's top employer after scooping the Employer of the Year award at the 2013 Ackrill Media Group Business Awards.
The team collected their accolade in front of a packed auditorium at Harrogate International Centre after impressing the judges with their strong focus on motivation and engagement.
Employees are encouraged to play a proactive role in the business and share their industry experience amongst the team through knowledge sharing sessions. Monthly Digital Breakfasts provide an opportunity to update everyone in the organisation about the latest industry developments and to acknowledge individual successes.
Socialising outside the office is also an important part of teambuilding at 9xb and recent events have included quad biking, clay pigeon shooting, bowling and the 9xb annual sports day. The award was presented by sponsor and judge Paul Berwin of Berwins Solicitors.
He said: “Congratulations to Rob Burns and his team for creating an exceptional workplace, and meshing reward and recognition with real benefits for the business.”
Managing director Rob Burns said: “9xb has enjoyed sustained organic growth over the past 8 years and is now positioned to accelerate ambitious plans to become one of the UK’s leading full service digital agencies.
“We are a forward-thinking, growing business that is providing employment and expertise in the fast-moving digital arena.
“As our business continues to expand in a highly competitive environment it’s important to us that we attract the very best employees in the industry.
“We want to achieve outstanding results for our clients and to do that we need to have a highly focussed, motivated team in place.”
