IMI makes top 100

Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) has remained in The Sunday Times Top 100 not for profit organisations for a third year.

‘The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For’ has published the lists of best employers for 2018, and the IMI remains in the Top 100 not-for-profit organisations, plus gaining a one star accreditation. Other companies in the motor industry were also recognised, including dealers, manufacturers, online car sales and training provision.

Best Companies gather the opinions of employees to understand their feelings towards their bosses, their working conditions and their employer’s values and a one star accreditation shows that levels of workplace engagement are very good.

IMI employees are encouraged to fulfil corporate values wherever possible and a staff recognition and appreciation scheme rewards those who demonstrate this. Colleagues can nominate their fellow workers and one winner is picked per month to receive a voucher and a thank you card.

Steve Nash, chief executive at the IMI, said, ‘Being listed in The Times Top 100 Not-For-Profit Organisations for a third year running is a great achievement for us.  We’re operating in a sector that has seen incredible change over the last year, and as a business that serves the automotive sector I feel it’s important to give our employees the opportunity to share their opinions. Surveying 100% of our staff provides us with a true representation and in-depth analysis of the organisation’s performance over the last year.’

In addition Steve Nash has moved into 22nd place in the Motor Traders 2018 Movers & Shakers list with a four star rating for his public profile.
