Hudson Blue, part of the Hudson Contract family, featured in the London Stock Exchange Group’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain report.
The roll of honour celebrates the UK’s fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium-sized enterprises. To be selected, companies have to demonstrate not only positive revenue growth over the last three years but also outperform their sector peers.
David Schwimmer, CEO of the London Stock Exchange Group, said: “SMEs drive growth, innovation and job creation and are the lifeblood of the British economy. We believe that supporting the growth of these businesses is critical to the UK economy and the creation of a society that works for everyone.”
We are committed to developing the next generation of skilled tradespeople.
Hudson Contract is a member of the Cross-Industry Construction Apprenticeship Task Force (CCATF), an initiative designed to increase engagement in apprenticeship training in construction.
As part of CCATF, our aim is to communicate positive messages to businesses regarding training and apprenticeships and to influence government policy. We joined the task force in 2017 and regularly support its events and meetings, allowing us to speak out about the issues faced by our construction company clients.
Due to the direct actions we take to encourage apprenticeships, the government invited Hudson Contract to join the Apprenticeship Ambassador Network for the Yorkshire and Humber region. We are proud to share best practice and help with the promotion of construction apprenticeships in the region.
The Apprenticeship Ambassador Network (AAN) is a group of employers whose main aim is to spearhead the drive to engage new employers to commit to apprenticeship delivery in England.
Ambassadors are chosen because they demonstrate a high commitment to apprenticeships or have a high profile in their sector and undertake their voluntary role by supporting and influencing stakeholders.
Self-employed tradespeople are key to the continued success of the UK construction industry. But their role is often misrepresented by interest groups and misunderstood by policymakers.
To increase understanding and awareness, Hudson Contract has supported extensive research by leading academics. Studies led by Professor Andrew Burke, Dean of Trinity Business School, show that legitimate freelancers are vital drivers of economic efficiency and help the sector to de-risk, increase productivity and start up new entrepreneurial businesses.
Self-employed tradespeople earn a substantial premium compared to equivalent employees, as illustrated by our monthly Pay Trends analysis.
