Holiday park owner, Bridge Leisure Parks has once again been named as one of the UKs best companies to work for and has been recognised as having outstanding levels of workplace engagement.
The news that Bridge Leisure has made the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For list for the third-year running, was announced at a glittering awards ceremony on Thursday (21/3).
The company, which owns and operates nine holiday parks employing more than 500 people across the UK, was also awarded a two-star Best Companies Accreditation made possible through an ‘outstanding’ commitment to workplace engagement.
Andrew Howe, chief executive of Bridge Leisure said: “We are very proud and humbled that our teams have given such fantastic feedback about working for us. We invest a lot in our people and to know that it really does make a difference to how they feel about coming to work is extremely heartening.”
“Being recognized as an outstanding employer is a great achievement, but more importantly, the fact our teams are happy and well-motivated reflects on the experience our customers have when they stay at one of our parks. It’s great to know that when people book a holiday with us they will be looked after by a great team of people.”
“We never underestimate the importance of training, development and engagement and that is demonstrated by the amazing people we have working with us in our central office and across our parks.”
To produce the survey, The Sunday Times interviews more than 270,000 employees to rate their company’s leadership skills, their wellbeing and opportunities for personal growth, and how they feel about their own manager and colleagues.
This is the 19th time The Sunday Times had published the list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For, using extensive data gathering and analysis across all business sectors.
