IF YOU want a good working environment, then head over to Fleet Alliance.

The Glasgow-headquartered broker has been named one of the UK’s Best Places to Work for the eighth successive year.

Run by the Great Place to Work Institute, Fleet Alliance has also moved 13 places up the rankings since publication of the 2019 results, which follows the successful integration and completion of its Neva acquisition.

Martin Brown, managing director of Fleet Alliance, said:

“While we are delighted to be recognised by Best Workplaces it is unfortunate to come at such an unprecedented time.

“It seems hardly credible that our offices are largely empty of the fantastic people that make Fleet Alliance such a great place to work.”

The Best Places to Work are judged solely on the feedback of staff, along with details about the programmes and practices that make the Fleet Alliance workplace such a unique experience.

Among these are the Fleet Alliance Loves programme which involves staff in charity fundraising campaigns and care for the socially disadvantaged.

Employee benefits include Wellness Wednesdays (stress-down workshops, therapies and treatments, yoga, meditation and breathing exercises), mental wellbeing care and a counselling service to balance work/home life, along with flexitime to make it easier for employees to fit work around their life. Every month there is also a free themed lunch, from Mexican to fish and chips.

Other employee benefits include free health cover and financial support for further educational studies.

One staffer enjoying these benefits is sales support team leader Julie Kidd, recently returned from furlough.

She said the flexible working arrangements really helped her childcare.

“Being able to work four days a week to assist with my childcare requirements has been really so useful. It’s taken the stress out of trying to balance my work and my family. The flexibility on offer is really appreciated.”

Martin Brown added:

“While the future remains unclear, one thing is certain: we will continue to make sure our employee welfare comes first, wherever they are presently working.”
