Avant Homes celebrates inaugural all-staff conference by launching Mercedes ideas drive incentive.
Avant Homes has launched a new incentive scheme to celebrate the innovative ideas of its people at its inaugural all-staff conference as the housebuilder continues to implement its growth strategy.
The move, which will see the employee with the best idea each month win the use of a Mercedes SLC 250 AMG for four weeks, comes shortly after the privately-owned developer reported a 43% increase in revenues to £160m for the first six months to October 31, 2016.
The incentive was launched by Avant Homes chief executive, Colin Lewis, at the company’s employee conference held in November at the Buxton Opera House, Derbyshire.
Speaking in front of Avant’s 575 employees, Colin announced that the incentive would help continue to foster the powerful ideas that have played their part in the company’s recent financial performance.
“Our people and their ideas have been at the heart of the transformation of Avant Homes, and the financial success it has delivered,” said Colin. “We are a restless business, dedicated to challenging the convention of the UK housebuilding sector.
“We’ve been able to do this by bringing powerful ideas to life and applying them in the real world through the way we design, build and sell our product and serve our buyers.
“Our Mercedes incentive recognises that outstanding ideas are as important to our business as the homes we build, and we want to celebrate our people’s intelligence and innovation.”
Avant Homes is a leading private developer of residential property in the UK. The average selling price of one of its homes is £246,000, which has increased 16% in the last six months. By the end of this year, the company will have over 45 live sites ranging from Kirkcaldy to Milton Keynes.
