Time 9:10 am, September 1, 2015

daksh-gupta-2MARSHALL Motor Holdings has just received the results of its participation in the 2015 Great Place to Work (GPTW) survey – and the results have delighted bosses at the company.

In early 2015, Marshall was named by the GPTW Institute as the 26th best large workplace in the UK.

Marshall has been working with the Great Place to Work Institute on its colleague engagement programme since 2008.

Each year, all 2,300 colleagues are invited to participate in the survey to understand levels of engagement across the business. Eighty-seven per cent of colleagues participated in 2015, against a benchmark of 69 per cent.

Regarding the statement, ‘Taking everything into account, I would say this is a great place to work’ Marshall achieved a score of 83 per cent, up from 80 per cent in 2014. The benchmark to be considered a ‘great place to work’ is 70 per cent.

The survey also groups questions together in five ‘dimensions’ to determine a ‘Trust Index’.  The five dimensions are credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.

Marshall’s overall Trust Index score for 2015 is 83 per cent, up from 81 per cent in 2014.


Daksh Gupta, CEO of Marshall, said the company was incredibly proud of its 26th placing, ‘particularly when you look at some of our peers in the rankings, companies such as Capital One, Microsoft, Cisco Systems and SAP to name a few.

He added: ‘Given what the organisation has gone through this year with the float of the company on the London Stock Exchange, we would have been pleased to have achieved the benchmark score of 70 per cent.

‘Everyone in the organisation is delighted with the result.’
