MARSHALL Motor Holdings is the highest ranking automotive company in the 2018 UK Great Place to Work list.
The dealer group, which employs 3,978 people, ranked 21st in the competition’s category for large companies with more than 500 members of staff.
This is the eighth consecutive year that Marshall has achieved Great Place To Work status, being recognised for having a high trust and high engagement workplace culture.
The methodology behind the ranking involves a survey of all of a company’s employees, as well as an audit into the business’ management and HR practices.
Helen Burrows, director of HR at Marshall Motor Holdings, commented: ‘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 one automotive company. This is testament to the high levels of engagement we have from our colleagues, evidenced by the 76 per cent 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, chief operating officer at Great Place to Work, added: ‘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.’
