Building contractor and refurbishment specialist Manchester and Cheshire Construction has received the very first Salford City Mayor's Charter Mark for employment.

The Charter Mark is designed to help raise employment and living standards, promote social inclusion and drive economic growth for employees and businesses across the city and the announcement was made by Ian Stewart, City Mayor of Salford:

'It is fantastic that Manchester and Cheshire Construction are the first to achieve this standard in this city - it's a day in history. They demonstrate that you can have employment standards and be profitable - and their retention rate for staff is very impressive. I hope other businesses follow this example.'

Following the ceremony Eugene O'Callaghan, Construction Director, explained how the Charter Mark endorses the company's strong belief in investment in their people and will help towards further growth:

'We have had a direct labour policy since our formation and are proud to have provided employment to the local population for 43 years. We invest heavily in the training and development of our workforce and this has resulted in very low staff turnover and an average length of service of over 10 years. We are loyal to our staff and actually increased the size of our workforce during the last recession, whilst many of our competitors carried out large scale redundancies. Our employees value our commitment to them which manifests itself in the quality of work we produce. The Charter Mark will help us to attract yet more high calibre employees who will take the company to the next level.'
