We're incredibly proud to announce that at the 2016 Sunday Times "Best Big Companies to Work For" awards we once again achieved second place - making for our seventh successive year within the Top 5.
The Sunday Times remarked on the quality training received by the Team and the investment the company has made in the recruitment of six Team Coaches to support different regions of the UK. Progress in focusing upon Personal Growth was an outstanding result with 1st place being awarded to the Group in this category.
Sytner were only one of 3 Best Big Companies to also receive an award in recognition of 10 years of entry into the competition, demonstrating our commitment to being the Best Big Company to Work For. In addition, for the fourth year in a row, we have also retained the coveted three star accreditation award.
Enthusiasm for the Company is high (1st place awarded) and so is faith in the direction the Company is progressing. Employees answering the survey expressed the view that senior management are visible and approachable (81%), they feel proud to work for the company (85%), that their jobs are important (82%) and that their job is an interesting part of their lives (76%).
This year we received our highest ever response rate with 80% of all employees completing an anonymous on-line survey. 80% is by far the highest response rate of any company in the league and we are the only company in the UK to remain in the Top 5 for seven years in succession.
Darren Edwards (Group Managing Director) commented:
“This is great news. It is a credit to our Team to have achieved such accolades. Last year was a record year for Sytner and I continue to be impressed by the quality and dedication of our employees who constantly out-perform the competition. I would like to thank the entire Sytner Team for helping us consistently achieve such superb results.”
