Fleet Alliance voted one of UK’s best places to work for third year running
Fleet Alliance, which operates nationally from a head office in Glasgow, finished ninth out of the top 50 of the best places to work in the UK, in the medium-sized category for companies with 50-499 employees.
This was up two places on last year, and in a larger size company category. At the same time, the company also won one of the night’s ‘Special Awards’ – specifically, the ‘Excellence in Leadership Award’ for the medium-sized company category.
In participating in this year’s Best Places to Work survey, Fleet Alliance staff took part in confidential and anonymous interviews with researchers from the Great Place to Work Institute.
They answered a series of questions in an employee Trust Index survey about the standard and quality of their workplace covering areas such as credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.
The Fleet Alliance overall Trust Index score was 96% which represented the percentage of staff who said Fleet Alliance was a great place to work, some 7% better than the medium-sized sector average within the index.
Fleet Alliance was also rated 96% for credibility, 95% for respect, 91% for fairness, 96% for pride and 98% for camaraderie by its staff.
The company also achieved other high scores for its strategy and direction, its culture, its corporate social responsibility, its innovation and continuous improvement, its diversity and its teamwork.
Fleet Alliance managing director, Martin Brown said: “The Institute rates a great workplace as one where employees trust the people they work for, have pride in the work they do, and enjoy the people they work with. So it is extremely gratifying, based on those criteria, to once again be name one of the UK’s Best Workplaces, and to have staff both recognise and value our efforts to continuously improve their professional and personal wellbeing.”
