On Tuesday 09.05.17, Motor Trader Magazine released the shortlists for this years’ prestigious awards.
It seems that 2017 will be a hotly contested year. With lots of categories having larger than usual short-lists and many new names in those lists.
The shortlist for, the Perfect Placement sponsored, Employer of the Year includes no fewer than seven renowned Automotive Businesses it appears also that this year was also a bumper one for entries.
The shortlist, for this highly coveted award includes a mix of Manufacturer owned businesses, Dealers, PLCs and a Used Car Supermarket, proof indeed that high employee engagement is not the province of any one particular type of Motor Trade business.
All those on this shortlist, will now have to show to the roaming judges that their business offers unparalleled employer-employee engagement.
Engagement is key to this award, and indeed the growth and profit of any business. Satisfied staff turn up for work, engaged staff are genuinely interested in the success of the business they work for and feel part of that success.
Well Done to those shortlisted:
JCB Group (Gillingham)
Marshall Motor Holdings (Cambridge)
Now Motor Retailing (Addlestone)
Renault Retail Group (London)
Stoneacre Motor Group (Thorne)
This award is close to our heart, we recognise that those businesses that engage with their employees go beyond that of employer, look past short-term gains and visualise the bigger picture in which their staff feature as key players not pawns, and we celebrate their successes.
We look forward to unveiling the eventual winner on the 12th of July and celebrating with them in their success.
