Shortlisted in the top 25 best companies to work For

Bonmarché shortlisted in the Best Companies “Top 25 Best Companies to Work For”

Bonmarché has been awarded a one-star accreditation from Best Companies, the employee engagement specialists, and simultaneously has been shortlisted in the Top 25 Best Companies to Work For List. The winners of the award will be announced at an awards ceremony on 25 February 2016.

The recognition is due to Bonmarché achieving a high score on Best Companies’ survey, which examined the ins-and-outs of company life. As the survey reveals how employees perceive their work environment, Bonmarché was seen as an employer that creates a workplace environment which is engaging and uplifting.

Earlier this year, Bonmarché conducted its second Culture Survey which aimed to improve the understanding of areas of current strengths and possible improvements in the business. These findings were used to identify how to build a high performance culture and as a result, the employees feel better connected with the wider company and feel their opinions are valued as a result of such improvements.

Speaking of this year’s shortlist, the Best Companies’ CEO and Founder Jonathan Austin said, “I would like to congratulate Bonmarché on their outstanding achievement. We know that the main challenge for many organisations this year will be talent attraction and retention. For organisations like Bonmarché that have demonstrated their ability to create an engaged workforce and recognise the importance of caring about their employees, they are in a good position to retain and attract the talent they need.”

Paul Kendrick, Marketing & Multi Channel Director for Bonmarché said, “We are so thrilled that Bonmarché has been shortlisted for the Best Companies to Work For in the UK and it is reflective of the passion, energy and drive of our colleagues across the business. It has been an exciting year for the business reflected not only by this accolade but also in our shortlisting in two categories for the Retail Week Awards 2016 as Employer of the Year and Speciality Retailer of the Year.”
