The fact that the majority of our £4.2m turnover derives from repeat business and framework commissions, is a testament to the quality of our service. It is our responsibility to ensure that our teams have the skills and experience necessary to continue to provide the quality service that we do.
We look after our staff, not just because of our legal obligations, but because they are our greatest investment. As a design company we don’t make a tangible product: all of our output is from our staff, and without them we would have no business.
It is also a significant challenge to attract the industry’s best talent to Norfolk, so our approach to people development is one that we believe is vital to differentiate us in the market.
Our approach also considers the challenge of a shrinking pool of talent available to businesses. We believe it is hugely beneficial for young people to be in contact with inspirational adults.
There is growing recognition of the importance of mental health and wellbeing in the workplace, and LSI aspires to be the best employer in the construction industry in order to become a better architect practice.
