Marshall Motor Group was the only car retail business to feature in the 2022 Great Place to Work Best Workplaces for Wellbeing rankings.

The AM100 car retail PLC featured in the Super Large category of the rankings, which feature 250 businesses from a variety of sectors, finishing 14th out of 38 of the UK’s largest employers.

Volvo Financial Services was ranked 29th out of 93 in the Medium category, meanwhile.

A 2022 Great Place to Work Best Workplaces for Wellbeing report accompanied the rankings.

In it, Great Place to Work said that HR leaders reported that health and wellbeing were the key issues they faced, with 23% citing it compared to 22% who cited talent management and the 20% who felt adapting to COVID-19 was the biggest issue.

When employees were asked ‘What is the best way for your organisation to support your personal wellbeing?’ autonomy and flexibility topped the results.

The report highlighted the emergence of good people management – particularly through proactive and caring line managers – as another key theme of employee responses.
