Marshall achieves its best 'Great Place to Work' score

Marshall Motor Group has achieved its highest ever scores in the latest Great Place to Work survey.

The Great Place to Work Institute each year surveys employees across thousands of companies in the UK and overseas.

Marshall has been participating in the survey since 2008 and has seen engagement scores increase
each year.

In the 2014 survey, 89% of the 2,300 colleagues at Marshall responded to the survey.

For the fifth year running, Marshall has exceeded the official benchmark level to qualify as a Great Place to Work.

Of the 81 dealerships that participated in the survey, six businesses in the Marshall group scored 100% in the survey and a further 49 exceeded the 70% benchmark required to be classed as a “Great Place to Work”.

This year the Marshall 'trust index' scores (based on credibility, respect and fairness scores in the study) have also exceeded the benchmark level for the top 30 large companies in the UK.

Marshall chief executive Daksh Gupta said: “I am really proud of how everyone has worked together to create the right environment for these great scores.

"The 89% response rate strengthens the validity of the results and gives us confidence that we can highlight clear areas for improvement. It also underlines the important Great Place to Work trust index overall score of 81%, up from 77% last year (Marshall's previoush highest score), which means we can now be benchmarked against the top 30 large companies in the UK.”

“Whilst we are ahead of the benchmark for the top 30 large companies in the UK, we aspire to be the best. People make the difference in any business, and with these high engagement scores, I know we can go on to achieve even greater things in the future.

"We truly believe that high engagement drives high performance. We had an outstanding year in 2013 and, having broken the £1 billion turnover barrier earlier this year, we are on track for another fantastic result in 2014.”

Every business unit in Marshall is now working on action plans to build on the opportunities identified in the results.

Through this process, every colleague in the group will be actively engaged in implementing the changes needed to improve the scores further in 2015.
