LEASING and fleet management specialist, Fleet Alliance, has been recognised as A Great Place to Work for a staggering twelfth successive year.
The Glasgow-based company’s rating comes from the Great Place to Work Institute, a fully independent organisation which assesses workplaces by gathering feedback from employee surveys as well as external analysis.
The Institute recognises national employers who create an outstanding employee experience and company culture. The new rating follows Fleet Alliance’s recognition this summer as A Best Workplace For Women for the third year in a row – the only fleet management company in its category to achieve the accolade. Two thirds of the company’s senior managers are women, underlining its inclusive credentials.
The company has also been an Investor in People for the last 20 years and has now achieved Platinum-level accreditation, a standard achieved by only 3% of British businesses.
Head of People and Culture, Emma Lovick, said: “The main draw for me in joining Fleet Alliance recently was the company culture and its ‘people first’ approach.
“At the heart of everything we do is Fleet Alliance Loves, our cultural programme which defines who we are and how we do business. Underpinned by our core values of fairness, trust, engagement and respect, it influences how we work, as well as our impact in the wider community.
“There is also a special focus here on social, charity and community work and the team has raised over £750,000 for local charities and good causes,” she said.
Fleet Alliance focuses on helping employees develop personally and professionally to ensure they are fulfilled and are properly supported to give the best possible service to customers.
It also offers provides an ongoing focus on employee wellbeing with a range of offerings in place including access to counselling, a personal wellbeing fund and financial wellbeing options.
“Employees can attend regular workshops, while we’ve designed our work environment to help with balancing the demands of life, including flexible working and a hybrid work policy,“ said Emma.
“We also offer a generous holiday allowance and paid leave for volunteering, birthdays, two wellbeing days per year and even a leisure day for shopping in December. And recognising the importance of families, we have recently enhanced our family leave policies, too,” she added.
Fleet Alliance offers an industry-leading benefits package, which is reviewed annually based on employee feedback, and includes gym memberships, Netflix subscriptions and cinema tickets as well as unique benefits such as receiving a Fitbit or kindle and annual VIP concert tickets.
The company enjoys regular breakfasts and lunches together, birthday vouchers and various health-related benefits, along with a variety of social events throughout the year.
Fleet Alliance’s head office is situated in Glasgow’s Skypark – Scotland’s largest business campus with onsite facilities that include a café, nursery and gym.
