Ogilvie Fleet has further improved its standing with employees as a top company to work for having achieved a two-star accreditation in the annual national survey that measures and acknowledges excellence in workplace engagement.
Best Companies has been producing and publishing the ‘Best Companies to Work For’ lists since 2001. The lists are published by The Sunday Times.
Each year hundreds of organisations from a wide range of industries use the organisation’s employee survey to measure the engagement of their employees. The responses are collated and combined to produce an overall engagement score for each organisation. Employees are asked to rate their employers’ engagement across eight key factors: leadership, my company, giving something back, my manager, fair deal, personal growth, my team and well-being.
Own our employees particularly praised the company for its leadership with senior management adopting an ‘open door’ policy and treating them as equals and with respect; their well-being with a flexible approach to working hours to meet individual lifestyle requirements; and with a fair deal notably through a profit-related bonus scheme.
Multiple awards in recent years have recognised our industry-leading customer service excellence and managing director Gordon Stephen said: “It is critical in delivering a high level of customer service across the business that we employ motivated staff. The two go hand-in-hand.”
Already accredited with Investors in People Silver Standard, Gordon said: “We are aiming to achieve the Gold Standard and next year we have ambitions to receive three stars in the ‘Best Companies to Work For’ programme. At Ogilvie Fleet we understand the importance of treating our employees well and respectfully whether in relation to their career opportunities, their pay and benefits or their general well-being. All of that helps to further improve productivity and encourages employees when dealing with a specific issue to go the extra mile in ensuring an outcome that satisfies the individual client. The survey is an excellent barometer of how our employees feel about Ogilvie Fleet as a business to work for.
