REL have achieved Great Place to Work® accreditation for a fourth consecutive year. The awards ceremony, which took place in London on 25th April saw REL placed in 11th position of all Large Workplaces (500+ employees) who took part in the accreditation process. We have climbed 2 places vs. our 2017 ranking and this years’ accreditation means we are closer than ever to our initial goal of achieving GPTW laureate status with five consecutive rankings. The methodology behind this list is one of the most rigorous workplace engagement measures available and uniquely comprises both an employee survey and an audit into an organisation’s management and HR practices both of which are measured and validated completely independently by GPTW. Stephen Gordon, REL MD said:
Colleague engagement is at the very heart of our Vision to be “Loved by our people & First Choice for customers,” people engagement is our organisational DNA and the desire to drive ever higher levels of engagement is what keeps our management team awake at night! Unlike our customer partners we don’t make soft drinks, confectionery, breakfast cereals, tea, consumer pharmaceuticals or consumer electronics; what we do is create highly engaged sales and brand advocate teams full of people who will represent our customers brands with passion and pride and who truly go the extra mile to deliver outstanding availability, activation and amplification at point of purchase. Our people focused strategy and the development of trust across all our colleagues and in our organisation, has created an environment where our people come to work because they want to not because they have to. It would be remiss of me not to add that it also means we have a very happy bunch of customers who love that, when it comes to people, we engage for success! We are hugely proud of our people and of our accreditation and will continue to focus on winning the hearts and minds of our people as a central plank of our growth strategy.
