Leading specialist ironmongery supplier and online retailer, IronmongeryDirect, has been recognised as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces™ For Women 2021, by Great Place to Work®. The accolade follows the company’s recent success in placing 58th in the overall medium sized, UK Best Workplaces™ 2021.
To determine the Best Workplaces™ for Women, the Great Place to Work® institute assessed feedback from anonymous employee surveys from 114 UK organisations, which measured the extent to which women across the organisation reported a consistently great workplace experience. Representing employees in the UK, the survey considered factors such as their daily encounters of innovation, inclusivity, company values, and leadership. Of the companies shortlisted, Essex based employer IronmongeryDirect ranked 32nd in the medium-size category of the UK’s Best Workplaces™ For Women.
“It is an honour to be recognised as one of the Best Workplaces™ for women to work in the UK by Great Place to Work®,” says Lea Stevens, Head of HR & Communication at IronmongeryDirect. “As a business, we are committed to ensuring all our employees are able to reach their full potential, no matter who they are or what they do.
