Exciting News! For the second time in five years, we’ve won one of the country’s most prestigious and respected business honours – the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation Following our success five years ago in winning our inaugural Queen’s Award, this time our innovative work in developing and launching our Gateway Compliance Matrix resource management system caught the judging panel’s eye. Jason Knights, Managing Director, Ground Control, comments “This is fantastic news as the Queen’s Award is recognition of the effort and investment we put in to create and maintain external spaces that are safe, functional and enjoyable for all our workers. “It’s a classic ‘win-win’ situation’,” said Jason Knights. “Using the Gateway Compliance Matrix gives us a competitive advantage in winning new contracts over our rivals – it offers our customers an improved and more efficient service – and our workers are more engaged and productive.”
