Instarmac Group plc, home to brands including UltraCrete, UltraScape, UltraTileFix, UltraFloor and Wondertex, has officially been named a ‘Great Place to Work’.
Instarmac was just one of 66 organisations in the UK to be recognised by Great Place to Work out of hundreds of entrants. Companies were categorised into large, medium and small according to the number of employees in their workforce. Instarmac are delighted to have been placed in 18th position for medium sized companies, alongside other well-known manufacturers such as Lindt and Danone.
Great Place to Work, in partnership with the Guardian and Sunday Telegraph, is recognised worldwide and celebrates trust and engagement within an organisation. Great Place to Work believes a successful company is built through day-to-day relationships with employees who trust the people they work with, have pride in what they do and enjoy the company of people they work alongside – values Instarmac have always prided themselves on.
Every Instarmac employee was given the opportunity to complete the Great Place to Work Trust Index survey, which consists of 58 core statements and assesses an employees’ experience of the workplace covering 120 areas including Strategy, Direction, Values, Career Development, Recognition, Reward and Wellbeing.
These responses are then analysed to determine whether or not a company really is a great place to work!
Instarmac’s Managing Director, John Holcroft, commented: “This is only our second year entering these prestigious awards and we are delighted to have been ranked in 18th place. This is a huge achievement for every member of the Instarmac team and we will continue to work hard to ensure that Instarmac remains a successful, happy and great place to work.”
This achievement is the latest in a long line of awards for Instarmac. In the last 12 months they have been placed in the ‘Sunday Times Best Small Companies to Work’ for the 9th year, were placed in 20th position in the 75 Best Companies to Work For in the Midlands, been ranked number one in the Mid Market 300, were named as a Low-Risk Operator by the DVSA, were presented with the coveted RoSPA Gold Medal Award and completed the transition to the new ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 accreditations, one of the first companies to do so.
