Auchrannie named in Top 30 Best Places to Work in Hospitality 2015.
The team from Auchrannie were delighted to hear that they have been named in the top 30 UK hospitality employers by the most widely read UK trade publication, “The Caterer”.
These unique awards were designed to reward and recognise the cream of hospitality employers as judged by the people who know them best - their employees.
40% of Auchrannie staff (61 people) were provided with an online tool-kit to answer a series of questions relating to their employer and workplace. The results of this gave the employer a ranking against other entries. This process made for a realistic and unbiased judging process, as it is based on the true opinion of individuals who know exactly how good their employer is.
Staff at Auchrannie scored the business at 90.4%, a whopping 15% above the benchmark figure and highlighted a number of factors which make the hotel “a best place to work”. These included a respect for work / life balance as well as being part of a team which communicates well, produces results and respects one another. Staff at Auchrannie also said that they really want to do a great job and enjoy involvement in decisions that affect their job.
The full listing and ranking will be announced at an inspirational and educational event for people leaders working within the hospitality sector. On Monday 20th April, The Caterer will host its inaugural People Forum at Park Plaza Victoria (London), where leading employers and employee engagement experts will share their stories and the latest HR innovations.
HR Manager, Lorna Jackson said, “I’m delighted that Auchrannie has been recognised as a top employer. It’s great to be part of an organisation where so many staff are so passionate about working there. We realise that it is only by providing such a positive environment for our staff that we are able to continually deliver such high levels of customer service to our guests”.
Having been recognised as a Best Place to Work in Hospitality, Auchrannie now been invited to join an elite group of employers and take their achievement to the next level by entering for the ‘Best Employer’ Catey. This is a major national award which is only open to the top UK employers from the Best Places to Work in Hospitality. A panel of leading hospitality figures will review all of the submissions as part of the Cateys judging process and award one employer the winning title.
