Marshall Motor Holdings was named by Great Place to Work® as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces in the Large category (organisations with 500+ employees) in their annual Best Workplaces ranking announced at a gala dinner on 25th April.
Ranked 21st, this is the fourth consecutive year the company has achieved this honour and it is the eighth year in succession the company has achieved Great Place to Work status. This recognises Marshall as having a high trust, high engagement workplace culture.
The methodology behind this list is one of the most rigorous available, surveying all colleagues as opposed to a sample survey, and uniquely comprises both a colleague survey and an audit into the 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.
Helen Burrows, HR Director, 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 very proud to have achieved Best Workplaces ranking for the fourth consecutive year and be the number 1 automotive company. This is testament to the high levels of engagement we have from our colleagues, evidenced by the 76% participation rate and our Trust Index scores, and to our ongoing commitment to ensure Marshall is a great place to work. We are also particularly proud that our last survey results included, for the first time, our 1,200 colleagues from the Ridgeway acquisition. This reassured us that the integration programme enabled them to settle in and embrace our culture. Finally, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all our colleagues for their commitment to the company and to our customers.”
Ben Gautrey, Great Place to Work® COO said: “We are delighted to see Marshall on our Best Workplaces list again this year. 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.”
