Commenting on the award, Paul Lynam, Chief Executive Officer, commented:
“Businesses don’t achieve success, people do. So, the quality of the employee experience is absolutely key to our ongoing success story. We work hard to maintain and promote a culture which has colleague and customer centric attitudes at its heart, rewards innovative and inspiring behaviours and sets work expectations around staff being trustworthy, compliant and safe. We also want to have fun and enjoy each other’s company at work.
“We believe that by creating an environment in which colleagues clearly understand how they can contribute to the success of our business and are fairly rewarded for their achievements, we generate high staff motivation and as well as attracting new talent to our Group of businesses.”

Understanding the perspective of employees is key to building a successful workplace environment. To determine an organisations ranking, Great Place® to Work administers its Trust Index survey® to employees which represents 2/3rds of the final score. The remaining third of the score comes from the Culture Audit®, a business-driven questionnaire that uncovers and evaluates the organisation’s HR and leadership practices, policies and culture.
