CHEP UK, part of leading logistics solutions company Brambles, is proud to announce that it has been officially certified by the Top Employers Institute for its exceptional employee offerings, having been awarded the exclusive Top Employers United Kingdom 2017 Certification for the second consecutive year.

The Top Employers Institute globally certifies excellence in the conditions that employers create for their people. Their annual, international research recognises leading employers from 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.

The Top Employers Institute has just announced the results of this year’s research into the employee conditions of organisations in the UK. CHEP UK Limited is one of the organisations to achieve the Top Employers United Kingdom 2017 Certification, and is delighted to be officially recognised as a leading employer, for the second consecutive year.

James Gooding, UK Country Manager for the Top Employers Institute said: “Optimal employee conditions ensure that people can develop themselves personally and professionally. Our comprehensive research concluded that CHEP UK Limited provides an outstanding employment environment and offers a wide range of creative initiatives, from secondary benefits and working conditions, to performance-management programmes that are well thought out and truly aligned with the culture of their company.”

Crucial to the Top Employers Certification is the completion of a stringent research process, and meeting the requisite standard to achieve the Certification. To further reinforce the validity of the process, all answers were independently audited, meaning this research has verified CHEP UK Limited’s outstanding employee conditions and earned them a coveted spot among a select group of certified Companies.

The Top Employers Institute assessed CHEP UK Limited’s employee offerings on the following criteria:

>       Talent Strategy

>       On-boarding

>       Performance Management

>       Career & Succession Management

>       Culture

>       Workforce Planning

>       Learning & Development

>       Leadership Development

>       Compensation & Benefits


Commenting on the award, Maureen Barwell, HR Director for CHEP UK said: “We are delighted to receive this certification for the second year running. In doing so, we have received extremely positive feedback from the certified assessors, and have demonstrated significant improvements in certain areas compared with last year that has now placed us in the Top 10 of the organisations who have received the 2017 certification. This is a phenomenal achievement, and one in which everyone at CHEP UK should be extremely proud.”
