Anglia Components celebrates Best Places to Work award
The nationwide workplace awards recognises good working practices for very large organisations to small companies with 10 to 49 employees. The workplace survey looks at the best workplaces with regards to women, LGBTQIA+ community, disabled employees, ethnic minorities, younger and older workers and wellbeing.
The distributor, which employs over 100 people in its sales, technical support, operations and warehouse teams received the award for its policy of a lunchtime finishing time on Fridays, its loyalty awards for every five years of employee service, champagne for ‘special’ birthdays, flowers for births and a house move day, company barbecues to celebrate staff achievements coupled with in-house training programmes for staff progression.
Anglia’s CEO Steve Rawlins commented, “Our staff are at the heart of Anglia’s success, and we’ve long believed in recognising this. . . . This year, in recognition of Anglia’s 50-year anniversary, we increased holidays to 27 days and gave our employees every Friday afternoon off. Even though these measures reduce total working hours, all staff remain on the same pay.
The awards winners in all company categories are selected from the results of an employee engagement survey with questions around Empowerment, Wellbeing, Information Sharing and Instilling Pride. Anglia achieved a score of 70% overall engagement based on responses from over 50% of employees.
Other companies in the Best Place to Work highlighted the value of some established practises and introduced some new ideas. Winners were recognised for various family-friendly policies and initiatives, bringing pets to the office, unlimited compassionate leave, as well as provision for volunteering, staff training, mentoring and development opportunities such as refresher training and apprenticeships.
