Staff at property consultancy EDGE thrive on competition in and out of the office. Camaraderie is strengthened by frequent company-wide social events and sporting activities, which outside a pandemic usually include The National Three Peaks and Coast 2 Coast Cycle charity challenges, sponsored by the business.

Founded in 2015, EDGE specialises in project management, cost management, building surveying and health and safety advice across a range of sectors, including commercial, education, aviation, healthcare and retail. The fast-growing enterprise employs more than 50 people at its headquarters in Nottingham and offices in London, Birmingham and Sheffield. British Airways, Camden Town Brewery, Sheffield Hallam University, Aldi and Monsoon are among its high-profile clients.

EDGE believes its most valuable asset is its people and invests in staff development through mentoring, training and providing stimulating work.The culture is based on trust and inclusivity and EDGE prides itself on creating an environment where people feel valued and know that their contribution is important, from acting on feedback in surveys and the new staff forum to celebrating excellent work.

Regular management video calls have acted as a conduit for building good relationships during the pandemic, particularly for the eight employees who joined two weeks before the national lockdown.

Following the death of colleague Gemma Petrie in 2018 from cancer, EDGE established an annual charity challenge in her name and has introduced the twice yearly Gemma Petrie Core Values Award to recognise those going the extra mile to demonstrate the company's values: Excellence, Dedication, Genuineness, Effective
