Employee recognition

Our values are at the core of how we work together. We recognise employees that demonstrate our values each and every day through our peer-to-peer recognition scheme where colleagues can thank each other.

We also hold an annual NHBC STARs awards, which celebrates and recognises the top performers across the business who have acted as role models whilst delivering great results for our homeowners, housebuilders and people.
