Marshall Motor Holdings was named by Great Place to Work as one of the UK’s best workplaces with 500 or more employees yesterday.
Ranked 19th in the large company category, this is the second consecutive year the company has achieved this honour which recognises Marshall as having a “high trust, high engagement” workplace culture. Marshalls was at 26th place last year.
Daksh Gupta, Marshall chief executive, said: “Our culture is built around a core set of shared values.
“Our commitment to upholding these values, encouraging our colleagues to share their valuable opinions and ideas and then us acting on what they have said, creates the foundation for our Best Workplace culture.
“We are delighted to have achieved Best Workplaces ranking for the second consecutive year, and to have improved our ranking to 19th.
“This is testament to the high levels of engagement we have from our colleagues, evidenced by the 89% participation rate and our Trust Index scores, and to our ongoing commitment to ensure Marshall is a great place to work.
“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all our colleagues for their commitment to the company and to our customers.”
All staff take place in the annual survey. Great Place to Work also entails an audit into an organisation’s management and HR practices.
The award recognises the strength of leadership and the range of innovative, creative and effective HR policies which create the workplace culture.
Tom O’Byrne, Great Place to Work chief executive, said of Marshall’s performance: “It is a validation of the strength of their leadership and their commitment to creating the kind of culture where employees enjoy coming to work and want to do their best.
“The hallmark of a great workplace like Marshall is that their policies and practices are designed around the employee; this employee focus helps attract and retain the talent essential for driving and sustaining competitive performance.”
