Pentland Brands has been recognised as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces 2012 (Category: Large) by Great Place to Work, the global research and management consultancy that creates the annual Best Workplaces list.
The international brand management group, which owns a number of sports, outdoor and fashion brands, including Speedo, Ellesse, Berghaus, Mitre and Red or Dead, is the only fashion and outdoor business to make this year’s list and, at number 16, is ranked higher than any other sports brand.
“One of our ambitions, as a UK-owned family business, is to be a leading employer,” says Andy Rubin, chief executive of Pentland Brands.
“We’ve created a workplace that gives people the opportunity to shine within a culture which encourages collaboration, creativity and development.
“A culture founded upon our belief in always learning, passion, courage and creativity.
“A top 20 position is a great achievement and it’s something we’ll be celebrating with all our teams.”
Tom O’Byrne, chief executive of the Great Place to Work Institute UK, adds: “Pentland Brands has made a strong showing for its first year participating in the programme.
“It does a great job of putting its employees first and I’ve been particularly impressed with the way the company culture and lifestyle shows through, generating real internal pride and enthusiasm for its brands and business.
“The family company treats its staff to the very best in popular wellness facilities and perks, which are an excellent fit for the organisation’s culture.
“Employees cite them as contributing to an enthusiastic, fun and inclusive environment, as well as encouraging a healthy work/life balance.
“Perhaps more importantly, staff genuinely appreciate the business’ family approach and trust their senior leadership.
“Pentland’s well-tailored, active culture drives their enviable position as a growing, outstanding employer brand in the industry.”
