The practice employs 40 staff across the Sleaford and Lincoln sites and Dr Palahey is a great believer in up-skilling staff by offering further training to be able to do more procedures, having himself worked within dental training for 10 years and is a programme director for Health Education England. He believes in creating a working environment which would encourage professionals to stay to provide continuity of care.
Our other nominee is Sleaford Quality Foods, a high-quality ingredients supplier to the food industry celebrating 50 years of trading.
It is currently headed by James Arnold. The company has a £55m turnover and after recent management appointments is pushing forward growth plans, relocating to an eight-acre site on Woodbridge Road. The expansion has been warmly-received by staff, says James, who are enjoying the additional office and warehouse space.
Mr Arnold said: “Our progression and continued expansion as a company can be sourced to commitment and teamwork.”
