This Autumn saw the team receive a third accolade to underline this in the form of the ‘Best Employer in Hospitality’ Award by caterer.com. The results were gathered using an employee engagement survey and based solely on the responses from employees for an unbiased view based on true employee perceptions. Accent’s engagement levels exceeded 94% and were certainly in good company with the other 2014 category winners including; Yo! Sushi, Liverpool FC and De Vere Venues.
Neil Pattison, Sales Director of Caterer.com, commented on why it matters to be a best employer: “The best employers understand how much employee engagement matters and why. They are the ones who really consider their employees and work hard to develop and motivate them, and this is reflected in their customer satisfaction levels, employee retention and overall business success.”
Earlier this year Accent were awarded a ‘Best Places to Work in Hospitality’ accreditation by The Caterer Magazine. This was largely thanks to employee engagement activities such as their ‘Shining Stars’ Magazine and reward system, alongside their ‘Managers Meeting’ bi-annual day out for every site manager covering training, company updates and a very well attended meal out!
