Value the Person Long-term friend and client wins prestigious award.

It is with great pleasure that we announce that Lagan Construction, a company that Value the Person has worked closely with for many, many years, was last week awarded the prestigious Belfast Telegraph "Excellence in People Development" Business Award.

Congratulations to Michael Lagan and David Jeffs (Joint MDs of Lagan Construction Limited) and to Vince Curran, Lagan Construction's People Development Manager.

Michael, David, Vince and his team have worked tirelessly over several years to instil a culture in which empowerment, motivation and people development have become the keys to their outstanding business success.

Professor Rodney McAdam, a member of the judging panel, said: "It was clear from the applications that a culture of systematic people development and empowerment (existing in Lagan Construction) leads to improved bottom line results, which reflects the ethos of the Belfast Telegraph awards."

This is well-deserved recognition for all their efforts over many years to invest in the development of their Lagan Construction staff in order to maximise their contribution to the business. Their award is proof indeed that this type of investment pays off.
