Twinings People wins Site of the Month for February

Kentico’s Site of the Month awards recognise the quality of work carried out on sites built on the Kentico platform across the globe each month. Last year, Ridgeway won 3 Kentico Site of the Month awards for AB Agri, Pure, and hmv, and we won last month’s award for our work on Atkinsons Bullion. This addition brings our grand total up to 11.

Twinings People is the careers arm of Twinings, offering candidates an overview of the company’s history and values, plus job vacancies and applications. The new, responsive site needed to offer an engaging and persuasive journey from learning about the company to completing applications, providing the HR team with a dedicated platform for promoting Twinings as a great place to work.

With a ready-made, award-winning template from our work on the Twinings site, it was a natural choice for it be reused for this new solution, saving time and money as well as creating a consistent look and feel across the brand.

Ridgeway has crafted its own unique base solution of the Kentico platform, which has enabled us to use the same layout to tell the story of the company rather than its product range. Twinings People's own unique sense of character has then been applied to fit with the company ethos of ‘come as you are’. The added job application management system means staff can now easily add vacancies and review applications, speeding up the time taken to hire new staff.

Twinings People was a great project for Ridgeway and shows both the flexibility of Kentico and the creativity of our skilled team in producing innovative solutions.

Talking about the site and award, Twinings’ HR Manager, Sundae Spiers, says: “It’s great news that we’ve won, and the team is delighted. The site presents our company, its ethos and values beautifully, and has enabled us to work much more efficiently, saving time and cost when hiring staff. I’m really pleased it has gained the recognition it deserves”.

Ridgeway’s Managing Director, Simon Lassam, adds: “Twinings People was a great project for Ridgeway and shows both the flexibility of Kentico and the creativity of our skilled team in producing innovative solutions. To have won both Site of the Month awards for this year (as well as our hat-trick in the Site of the Year awards) is proof of this, and we look forward to working on similar projects in the future.”
