Provide Community Scoops a Double Award Win for Business Culture

Colchester-based Provide Community has taken home two awards at the 2022 Business Culture Awards. The annual awards celebrate the UK’s top forward-thinking organisations who invest in people, innovation and values to lead in business culture.

The event was hosted by  Reverend Richard Coles a night where finalists included Lloyds Banking Group, Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust, Sage, Schroders and NatWest.

Provide Community’s entries focused on the Community Interest Company’s investment in people, innovation and services and its grants and donations to the communities it serves, which total more than £3.5 million to local charities and community groups in the last 11 years.

Beating off finalists including Bewley Homes, UST and Evora Global, Provide Community Group Chief Executive Mark Heasman was awarded the ‘Business Culture Leadership Award.’

Commenting on the award, Mark said: “I am lost for words. It is an honour to lead an organisation where people make a difference every day. When we talk about culture, it really is the mindset of every Provide Community colleague that makes it happen, and I am so proud of what we do.”

In the second shortlisted nomination, Provide Community again faced stiff competition from finalists including Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, The Children’s Trust and Westminster City Council, and were announced as the winning entry for ‘Best Public/Not-For-Profit Organisation for Business Culture.’

Vicky Waldon Group Chief Commercial Officer said: “It was a fantastic night, and we were very humbled to receive the recognition we did. Our success as a business is down to the commitment of all of our colleagues in the Provide Community to deliver such great services.  It’s a great feeling to win, for me it’s the external validation that we are successfully striving to achieve our Vision, Mission and Values through a positive and inclusive culture.

“Mark shows such compassionate leadership, proving that you can grow and develop a successful business whilst keeping true to your values.”
