REL have achieved Great Place to Work® accreditation for a fifth consecutive year earning the laureate status and placing 7th of all Large Workplaces (251-1000 employees) up four places from 11th position in the Large Workplaces category in 2018.
The 2019 awards ceremony took place in the Tobacco Dock, London and we are delighted that REL has been recognised by its employees as an organisation that promotes a healthy workplace culture through trust, pride and camaraderie.
Understanding the perspective of employees is key to building a successful workplace environment. To determine an organisations ranking, Great Place® to Work administers their Trust Index survey® to all employees which represents 2/3rds of the final score. The remaining third of the score comes from the Culture Audit®, a business-driven questionnaire that uncovers and evaluates the organisation’s HR and leadership practices, policies and culture.
Stephen Gordon, REL MD said:
I am hugely proud of our family here at REL and also what they achieve for our brand partners everyday. Whether those achievements are on the front line winning in store and increasing or influencing our partners’ sales at the point of purchase or whether it is one of the back office teams at Winnersh who support and enable our field sales teams to do their stuff, our collective team deliver outstanding return for our customers.
I truly believe our success has come from the one thing that I am most proud of here at REL which is our culture; it is our focus on building trust and engagement with our people that enables and empowers them to win and make things happen for our customers and our multi award winning delivery provides the evidence that our people do just that!
Our cultural commitment “The People Promise,” was created by our people not the management team and we try to live it everyday using it to continuously improve and ensure that REL is the best company to work for in the UK.
Put simply we try everyday to create an environment where people come to work because they want to not because they have to!
