Pride in the Job benefits Promoting your high quality homes

Making the most of an award
Winning an award is a great personal achievement for your site manager, one that he or she will remember with pride for many years to come. But, it's also a visible demonstration of your company's overall commitment to quality, providing a great opportunity to boost your corporate reputation - particularly to potential homebuyers.
We can help you make the most of your site manager's success through advertising, press articles and on-site marketing.

What winning an award means to site managers
Three former winners have told us what it means to them:
George Lattimer of Lattimer Homes - 8 times Supreme Winner, Small Builder Category
"It's a massive honour to win Pride in the Job and I've never taken it for granted. I'm like a dog with a bone - I never want our standards to be anything other than perfect. Everyone who works on our site knows my build standards are high and so do the homebuyers. We've never spent a penny on advertising. Having a Pride in the Job flag on site shows we build quality homes."
Tony Armson of William Davis - 3 times Supreme Winner, Medium Builder Category
"Winning the Supreme Award was like finally finding the Holy Grail! As a previous Pride in the Job Regional Winner, I'd knocked on the door a few times and was starting to wonder whether it would ever happen. When it did, it was enormous. I was so proud of what the team had achieved.
I approach the building of houses every day as though we are going to be assessed for Pride in the Job. There is no doubt that this competition encourages site managers and teams to raise standards, not to mention rallying some healthy local competition."
Bill Hughes of Miller Homes - 5 times Supreme Winner, Large Builder Category
"Sometime in everyone's life you get that split second, that rush, and winning a Pride in the Job Award gave me that exact feeling. Winning a Supreme Award gets harder every year as all the other site managers up their game. You've got to keep ahead of the field. The competition is fierce but the rewards are great.
I'm always anxious when the judges arrive on site because they turn up unannounced, but in fact I'm happy for them to see my site at any time. It's always run as if a Pride in the Job judge was about to arrive."
