In 2019 Nuneaton hit its target of becoming a £3m turnover company, and set a new target of £5m

Signage manufacturers Nuneaton Signs is a company that champions social value by supporting and upskilling differently abled people.

At the recent RNIB See Differently Awards 2022, Nuneaton won Employer of the Year thanks to its commitment to providing an accessible and inclusive workspace for its blind and partially sighted employees.

The ceremony is run by the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB), a sight loss charity based in the UK. The awards are made to celebrate the people and organisations that look to improve the lives of blind and partially sighted people.

Nuneaton Signs supports 70 employees, along with apprentices and interns, 70% of which have a disability. The company employs three members of staff who have sight loss which led to Nuneaton being recognised for its culture of inclusion and commitment to disabled staff.

The company took to Twitter not long after the ceremony to celebrate and comment on how inspiring the entire event was.

We are so honoured to have been awarded Employer of the Year by RNIB at their See Differently Awards. We are truly so thankful for recognising the work we do as a social enterprise.

Speaking to SignLink, commercial director for Nuneaton, Michelle York, says: “We are so honoured to have been awarded Employer of the Year by RNIB at their See Differently Awards. We are truly so thankful for recognising the work we do as a social enterprise.” 

York adds: “By choosing Nuneaton Signs as your signage supplier, you are providing job opportunities to disabled people. You will be part of building a community that is not biased and allows everyone to participate in society.  All of us deserve to be valued and it is time we celebrate our differences.”

The judge for the award was BBC specialist and general news correspondent Sean Dilley, who felt Nuneaton’s nomination ‘shone’ through in a very ‘competitively challenged category’.

As a social enterprise the company looks to reinvest profits back into the business and community, creating social change in the process. The company operates in the business-to-business space working with customers such as the NHS, Fiat, National Highways, and signage companies like McCann.
