SHORTLISTED FOR WELLBEING
The most prestigious and rigorous awards championing responsible business have shortlisted the ERIKS UK Global TRI2015 Wellbeing Challenge.
The Responsible Business Awards were set up by the Responsible Business Network of HRH The Prince of Wales’ Business in the Community charity.

/AWARDED FOR SERVICE, SAVINGS AND SOLUTIONS
Festo is an international specialist in automation of motion control. By realizing various Energy Saving Solutions projects, ERIKS the Netherlands has won the Festo Service Dealer Award for its successes in saving customers energy and money on the use of compressed air.
Qualified ERIKS Service Engineers not only carry out Energy Savings Surveys, and measure leakages and air quality, but can also undertake any necessary repairs identified by the surveys. They also consult the Festo ESS team for additional expert advice and support if required. ERIKS has carried out a large number of projects to measure and repair compressed air leaks for customers, resulting in savings of many thousands of euros. Impressed by the number and execution of the projects, and by the added value products and services provided, Festo made their Service Dealer Award to ERIKS.
/THE PERFORMANCE EXCELLENCE GOES
For the third year running, ERIKS West – a division of ERIKS Seals and Plastics, Inc. in North America – has received a Silver Performance Excellence Award from The Boeing Company. Boeing issues this award annually to recognize suppliers who have achieved a superior performance rating every month from October to September.
To achieve their latest award from Boeing, ERIKS West maintained a Silver composite performance level throughout the period under review, and were one of only 402 suppliers to attain this status. Winning this award from Boeing for the third year in a row is a great source of pride to the ERIKS West team. It shows the value we place on the partnerships we have with our customers. We will continue to build strong customer relationships by providing a wide range of components, along with unsurpassed technical support and logistics services that bring value to our customers.
/OFFICIALLY A TOP EMPLOYER
Once again, ERIKS has been officially recognized as a Top Employer, for our high levels of employee engagement and development.
The Top Employer Certification for the Netherlands, Belgium and the United Kingdom was awarded by the Top Employers Institute, which recognizes top performers in Human Resources. ERIKS was rated for Working Conditions, Training and Development, Career Development and Culture Management. This reflects the excellent support our employees receive through our Employee Assistance Program, and the training and development they are given – not only to improve their skills but also to ensure that their personal growth matches our company growth.
The accreditation is the result of considerable planning and hard work, which has created our industry-leading HR and benefits structure, and the communication channels which ensure all employees are aligned with our corporate objectives and feel part of the ERIKS team.
