AUTOMOTIVE learning and development agency RTS Group has been named as one of the 100 best small companies to work for by the Sunday Times.
The Wiltshire-based firm is included in the prestigious list for the first time, and the announcement of its success was made at a ceremony earlier this month.
At the same time, the company achieved the maximum ‘Best Companies 3 Stars’ accreditation, one more than its two-star status of the previous two years.
This competitive list spotlights the 100 companies in the ‘small’ category with the highest Best Companies Index (BCI) scores. To join the list, organisations must employ at least 50 full-time employees and achieve one of the 100 highest BCI scores in the category.
Malcolm Miller, managing director of RTS Group, said: ‘We are absolutely delighted, first to have achieved the three-star accreditation for the first time and also to have made it into the top 100.
‘We are in the business of developing people for the automotive sector, so it is a great endorsement that we are doing a good job with our own team.’
RTS Group, based near Chippenham, was founded in 1989, and works with automotive manufacturers and vehicle retailers to develop dealership staff.
It also runs events for the automotive sector, including product launches.
Its finance arm – FIMTRAC – focuses on trade cycle management, and helping dealerships increase the uptake of vehicle finance among customers.
The company has more than 50 staff, over 200 associates and trades extensively overseas as well as in the UK.
