Kia strikes the right balance

Kia UK has been officially accredited as a Great Place to Work-Certifie organisation.

The certification derives from validated employee feedback, which was gathered by the independent organisation, Great Place to Work. The accreditation confirms that at least 65% of employees have a consistently positive experience at Kia UK.

Excellent response was given by Kia staff on areas such as working atmosphere, trust in management, corporate strategy, pride in working for the company, benefits, facilities and sense of security.

Gemma Benbow, people and organisation director at Kia UK: “A company is only as good as its people, so it’s fantastic that Kia UK has now been independently certified as a Great Place to Work. Employee satisfaction is hugely important to us as a customer-focused organisation, so it is great that they have reported positive experiences towards their colleagues, leaders and jobs.

“There is a direct correlation between employee and customer satisfaction. Being a Great Place to Work drives productivity, better business and results that all make a difference to our customers.”

Kia UK topped the Reputation automotive brand list in late 2022, measuring customer sentiment and online reputation. The company also won the ‘Gold Trusted Service’ award from Feefo for the past two years, which uses ratings from real customer reviews.
