Renault UK makes environmental gains

Renault UK has been named as one of the UK’s best places to work.

Great Place to Work placed it in the top 50 organisations in the Medium category (50-499 employees). Staff named friendly colleagues, a calm atmosphere and transparency between managers and their peers amongst the reasons why they thought Groupe Renault UK is a Great Place to Work.

Schemes such as a flexible benefits system, which ensures all employees have the choice of the benefits that work best for them, flexible working hours and a recently refurbished modern head office environment were all also identified by staff in the survey.

Sian Vernon, director of human resources, Groupe Renault UK and Ireland, said, ‘The working culture here at Groupe Renault UK is all based around empowering our employees – they know that the entire business values their opinions and we encourage them to share feedback on all parts of the business whenever necessary. We encourage the office be a friendly and calm place to come to work everyday – our employees demonstrate this as there’s a real team comraderie here. We always endeavour to make the company a fun and creative environment to work in, creating the foundation for our Best Workplace culture. I’d like to thank all our staff for their role in achieving this recognition.’

The methodology behind the ranking is one of the most rigorous available and uniquely comprises both an employee survey and an audit into the organisation’s management and HR practices. The award recognises the strength of Groupe Renault’s leadership and the range of innovative, creative and effective HR policies, which creates the brand’s successful workplace culture.
