For the third year running, IronmongeryDirect has been recognised as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces™ 2022 by Great Place to Work® and has ranked 100th in the medium-sized business category. The award is the latest in a series of accolades for the specialist supplier, having recently achieved the 2022 Outstanding Award for Customer Satisfaction by In-house Research Ltd, and named as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing 2022 by Great Place to Work®.
Organised and managed by The Great Place to Work® institute, the Best Workplaces™ Award recognises companies that promote a healthy workplace environment through management credibility, respect, fairness, trust, pride and camaraderie. Anonymous employee surveys and assessments gauged levels of trust in the company and their colleagues, as well as the organisation’s HR and leadership practices, policies and culture.
With a keen emphasis on creating a working environment that fosters positive customer experiences, the Essex based trade supplier has enjoyed several honours over recent months that underpin this commitment. Notably, the company recently received the Best Workplace™ for Wellbeing Award from Great Place to Work® in recognition of its efforts in creating a workplace where employees feel healthier and happier, with the opportunity to thrive in their day to day working life.
“We know that when employees feel valued and respected, they are more motivated,” commented Dominick Sandford, Managing Director at IronmongeryDirect. “In turn, those positive experiences engender a more loyal and committed workforce and these qualities are extended to our customers.”
Indeed, customers consistently rate their experiences with IronmongeryDirect highly, which led to the company recently receiving the 2022 Outstanding Award for Customer Satisfaction from In-house Research Ltd. The award is accredited to companies that achieve a Net Promoter Score (NPS) of 70 or above, based on customer feedback during 2021.
Dominick further explained the company’s commitment to the ongoing improvement of its workplace environment and the customer experience: “Our comprehensive learning and development programme encourages our employees to deepen their knowledge of the industry, gain new skills and ignite personal growth. We have also made several new appointments in our Contact Centre, all with an increased focus on customer satisfaction, including a new Customer Success Executive and a team of agents who work solely on customer service excellence.
“We are extremely proud to once again receive recognition from Great Place to Work® as being one of the UK’s Best Workplaces™. This fantastic result is a testament to our staff who feel confident in the workplace and work hard to achieve IronmongeryDirect’s goals.”
