British Independent Utilities (BiU) is a utility consultancy providing organisations with a full suite of energy and environmental solutions to help reduce costs and improve energy efficiency. The organisation work with high-street retailers, the public sector, supermarkets and hoteliers through to manufacturing, third sector and property investment companies.
BiU was formed over 20 years ago by two colleagues working in the energy industry, with the aim of doing things differently and 'being the best company to work for and with.' BiU is still privately owned and this ethos remains at the heart of the business - BiU invests heavily in time and money to ensure its people have the best experience possible at work.
BiU is committed to recognising employees continued efforts all year round. Every time that someone goes above and beyond and does something worthy of recognition, they can be nominated for a merit through their 121 feedback platform. Merits are collected as employees go about their every day work, when someone reaches either 25 or 50 merits they get a reward such as shopping vouchers, spa vouchers or concert tickets. When they reach 100, they receive a night away for two in a hotel.
The organisation is committed to protecting the environment. They have stopped over 120,000 paper towels every year going to landfill with their new high-speed hand dryers. IT have also upgraded monitors and computers as part of the IT infrastructure updates and as a result the energy efficiency of their technology improves, which in turns reduces energy consumption.
