Jeweller praised for internal promotion, staff bonuses & charity work.
Beaverbrooks has been named one of the best places to work in Scotland.
The multiple jeweller was named the top employer in the medium- to large-sized companies category of the Scotland’s Best Workplaces Awards 2012, run by The Great Place to Work Institute.
Judges at the awards commended Beaverbrooks for donating 20% of post-tax profit to charitable causes, cultivating a management pool by regularly promoting employees and awarding customer-facing staff with monthly, quarterly and annual bonuses.
Beaverbrooks chief executive Daniel Brown said: “We are so pleased and proud to be recognised as the best workplace in Scotland. It’s testament to the fantastic culture we have through the region, and to the work done by both the past and present Area Managers there, Anna Blackburn and now Emma Cornwall.
“Being a good employer is very important to us – we really believe it’s right to treat people right. We also know that it’s the people who make Beaverbrooks a great place to be, for themselves and for our customers, so a big well done and thank you to every one of our team members who has played a part in this result.”
Beaverbrooks has long been revered as a quality employer and in 2009 it was named the Best Company to Work For in The Sunday Times, just a year after winning the same accolade in The Financial Times’ Great Workplaces awards.
