Roadchef, one of the UK’s leading motorway service (MSA) operators, has received a hat-trick of the industry’s most prestigious accolades as it announces it has ranked fourth on the ‘Best Big Companies to Work For’ league table and third on the ‘Leisure & Hospitality’s Best Companies to Work For’ table, following it taking home a 2 Star Accreditation on its employee engagement survey.

The Best Companies league tables, representing ‘the very best’ organisations across the UK, celebrate the highest levels of workplace engagement and employee satisfaction. Roadchef truly excelled, placing highly on the national and regional tables for its commitment to employees’ wellbeing, with eight regional site recognitions including first place for companies to work for in the North East, fourth in the North West, and seventh across Wales.
These follow the MSA securing a 2 Star Accreditation from the Best Companies employee engagement survey – the second highest standard out of the Best Companies accreditations – representing ‘outstanding’ commitment to workplace engagement. Six other Roadchef sites also received 3 Star Accreditations from Best Companies, the highest standard of workplace engagement, including Chester, Sandbach, Stafford, Durham, Killington Lake, and Pont Abraham.

Roadchef also this year achieved Platinum level status of its ‘We invest in people’ accreditation, the highest that can be achieved against the IIP Standard, currently held by just 6% of the 50,000 IIP-accredited organisations globally. IIP has acknowledged Roadchef for its support and recognition given to its employees: ‘You care about your people, and you’re ambitious to do even more for them.’

Laura Bunn, HR Director at Roadchef, said: “We are overwhelmingly proud to not only have ranked as the fourth best big company to work for in the UK and third in hospitality and leisure, but to also receive a conglomerate of other prestigious accolades which will take pride of place amongst our other achievements.

“One of our biggest priorities is to not only treat our visitors well, but our employees alike. These accolades are testament to our people who, through hard work and dedication, continue to make Roadchef one of the best companies to work for in the UK and this, in turn, ensures Roadchef operates in a way that our customers enjoy their experiences with us. We look forward to continuing to create and nurture positive working environments that put people first to build a stronger, more fulfilling future, driven by the passion and dedication of our incredible team.”
