Best place to work

IronmongeryDirect was recently named as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces 2020.

In a report compiled by Great Place to Work, IronmongeryDirect was listed among 162 companies shortlisted based on positive employee experience and HR and leadership practices.

Assessors examined IronmongeryDirect’s HR and leadership practices, policies and culture, as well as responses to a Trust Index survey shared with all its employees. Overall, 86% of IronmongeryDirect employees said that the company ‘is a great place to work’.

The Trust Index survey covers aspects including the credibility and fairness of management, whether employees feel that they are respected, and if employees report a sense of pride in their work. Results from the survey account for three-quarters of the final result.

The remaining quarter takes in the Culture Index, which includes factors such as employee benefits, how IronmongeryDirect inspires those who work for the company, and transparent internal communications practices.

Marco Verdonkschot, managing director at IronmongeryDirect, said: “To be recognised as one of the UK’s best workplaces is a huge achievement and is testament to our dedication to create a healthy workplace culture where our employees feel trusted, valued and loyal to achieving organisational goals.”
