For the fourth consecutive year, Midcounties Co-operative is to be named one of the best organisations to work for.
The society has secured a place on Sunday Times 25 Best Big Companies to Work For list, which is based on employee feedback.
Last year, Midcounties was ranked 13th, up from 24th position in 2012 and 2011. An awards ceremony in London on 27th February will reveal the full ranking.
Ben Reid, Chief Executive of the Midcounties Co-operative, said: “To be recognised as a top big company to work for based purely on colleague feedback is a great honour and also a significant endorsement of the co-operative values which our society embodies."
Last September, Midcounties commissioned an independent survey of staff and found that it had its highest-ever engagement rate, with a score of 80 out of 100.
The GfK Market Research survey asked its 9,000 staff to consider how well they understand the society and its values, as well as their satisfaction with their roles. GfK rank any organisation achieving 80 or above as ‘outstanding’ in terms of engagement.
