The chief operating office of Right at Home has been crowned the winner of the Woman Franchisor of the Year Award for a second consecutive year.
Lucy Campbell received the accolade at the virtual Natwest Encouraging Women into Franchising Awards and was praised for her “calm and pragmatic” approach to supporting franchise owners during the pandemic.
Right at Home said this approach lead to the business achieving its most successful year to date in 2020, with month-on-month growth during the pandemic, 100% of its inspected offices in England rated Good or Outstanding by the CQC and being awarded national 5* employer status by independent researcher WorkBuzz.
Speaking on her award win, Campbell said: “For Right at Home to receive such recognition, especially given the year that it has been, really does mean so much to me. It has been an absolute privilege to lead our network through such times and as much as this is a personal award, I really do feel it is a much deserved accolade for each and every member of our very special Right at Home family.”
Ken Deary, Right at Home UK’s CEO, added: “Lucy is a tremendous business leader and a beacon for equality in the workplace. I would like to personally thank Lucy for all she does for both Right at Home UK and promoting the importance of equal opportunities every day. To win this major award two years in succession is an amazing feat and well deserved recognition.”
This latest accolade follows Right at Home UK winning a prestigious Best Franchise Award earlier this year.
Helen Mansfield, managing director of EWiF, said: “The rise in the number of women who are breaking into franchising, and carving out their own businesses in this industry, is such a joy to see. We have been encouraging women to consider franchising as a route for business success since 2008, and are honoured to be able to award Lucy for her contribution to franchising. She is a very worthy winner.”
