Leasing and fleet management specialist, Fleet Alliance, was named best places to work in the UK by the independent Great Place to Work Institute.

Fleet Alliance, which operates nationally from a head office in Glasgow, Scotland, finished fifth out of the top 25 of the best places to work in the UK, after 97 percent of its staff voted it a “Great Place to Work.” The company recently won the award for the Best Company to Work at in Scotland, also presided over by the Great Place to Work Institute.

In the final, the company was competing against a line-up of household names including Coca-Cola, eBay, McDonalds, Microsoft, and IKEA.
Each year, the Great Place to Work Institute surveys about 6,000 organizations around the world representing about 10 million employees to give an insight into what makes employees tick and how leaders can improve their business performance by understanding and improving their workplace culture.

In participating in this year’s Best Places to Work survey, Fleet Alliance staff took part in confidential and anonymous interviews with researchers from the Great Place to Work Institute. They answered a series of questions in an employee Trust Index survey about the standard and quality of their workplace covering areas such as credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.  The Trust Index survey is based on the Great Place to Work model, which defines a great workplace as one where employees trust the people they work for, have pride in the work they do, and enjoy the people they work with.
