An online fashion and beauty store has won an award for having one of the best workplaces in the country.

Watford's ASOS call centre has triumphed at the British Council for Offices’ annual Midlands and Central England Property Awards.

ASOS’s contact centre, designed by Spacelab, was the winner in the Best Fit Out of a Workplace category.

Building services partner at Cundall and chair of Midland & Central England Judging Panel Rob van Zyl said: “The workplaces that won the regional awards this year are truly diverse.

"What these winning workplaces have in common is how they’ve used innovative office design.

"These projects have also kept employee wellness in mind, for example by incorporating natural sunlight or by making the most of iconic views of the surrounding local landscape a part of the workplace.”

The office was recognised at the annual British Council for Offices' regional awards, at Birmingham Town Hall.

Described by judges as a “call centre for the millennial generation”, the development was praised for having created a "collaborative, agile working environment with a strong emphasis on employee wellbeing and development."

Regional director of argent and chairman of the British Council of Offices Midlands & East Anglia Committee Rob Groves said: “A clear theme has emerged from entries across the region this year.

"Delivering excellence in the face of challenging conditions.

"This includes everything from working around busy or short time frames for development, considering the public environment, or refitting historic, and often iconic, local buildings.

"Our entrants not only navigated these challenges but used them to their advantage, maximising unusual features of old buildings in new designs and seamlessly linking developments in busy areas with public thoroughfares and train stations.

"The awards are a clear reflection of the strength of our local offices sector, and the talent that’s capable of making the most of what our geographically and economically diverse region has to offer.”
