Vauxhall Motors certified a 'Top Employer' in the United Kingdom

Vauxhall Motors announced that it has been officially certified by the Top Employers Institute for its exceptional employee offerings.

The annual international research, undertaken by the Top Employers Institute, recognises leading employers around the world - those
that provide excellent employee conditions, nurture and develop talent throughout all levels of the organisation and which strive to continuously optimise employment practices. Vauxhall Motors has been awarded the exclusive Top Employers United Kingdom 2014 certification.

The Top Employers Institute (formerly known as the CRF Institute) globally certifies excellence in the conditions that employers create for their people. It has just announced the results of this year's research into the employee conditions of significant employers in the UK. Vauxhall Motors is one of the select organisations to achieve the Top Employers United Kingdom 2014 certification and delighted to be officially recognised as a leading employer.

Crucial to the Top Employers process is that participating companies must complete a stringent research process and meet the required high standard in order to achieve the certification. To further reinforce the validity of the process, all answers were independently audited, meaning this research has verified Vauxhall Motors' outstanding employee conditions and earned them a coveted spot among a choice group of certified Top Employers.

"In 2014 we've seen trends of the last couple of years starting to come to fruition with many Top Employers starting to reap the results from the coaching, mentoring, and apprenticeship programmes they've implemented," said Eleanor Nickerson, Manager of UK Operations for Top Employers Institute.

"We're seeing a heavier focus on succession planning, in particular with companies developing their current and future leadership. Many of our certified companies have developed creative and inclusive leadership programmes that help to develop their top talent and ensure that it’s a win-win situation - you have engaged employees who have an exciting and rewarding career path ahead of them, and organisations with talented, long-term leadership that's aligned with their business."

Zoe Peacock, a Vauxhall apprentice, addded, "Vauxhall has allowed me to strengthen my skills and develop my knowledge, all whilst being a valuable member of the workforce, earning a salary and making friends for life."

"We are delighted to have received certification as this is an acknowledgement of the constant review and improvement of our key HR strategies and our progressive approach to practices and policies. We will continue to benchmark our activities as involvement with the Top Employers Institute enables us to find, grow and keep the best talent. At Vauxhall, caring for our employees is a top priority and the Top Employers certification enables us to demonstrate our strong commitment to the workforce," said Phil Millward, HR Director, Vauxhall Motors.
