Admiral Group named Best Place to Work in the UK

Admiral Group has been named the best large place to work in the UK by the Great Place to Work Institute in their Best Workplaces list.

To add to this achievement, it also won an unprecedented four special awards for Health and Wellbeing, Learning and Development, Most Trusted Leadership and Disability. It is the company's highest ever placing since first appearing in the list in 2001. Last year Admiral Group came 9th.

Admiral Group CEO, Henry Engelhardt said, "Wow! We are over the moon to have been placed 1st in the Great Place to Work Best Workplaces list which is our highest ever placing.

"Our position is based on what our employees think about working for Admiral which makes it very gratifying. Everyone here works incredibly hard to make Admiral the success it is and we want to make coming to work as enjoyable and rewarding as possible."

Chief Executive of the Great Place to Work Institute UK, added, "Admiral Group has truly gone above and beyond expectations this year. Already in 2011 achieving Master status for 10 consecutive years on the UK's Best Workplaces lists, Admiral continues to drive its longstanding dedication to its people and its culture with an outstanding showing in 2012.

"Admiral has ranked as the number one workplace of its size, in addition to an unprecedented near-sweep of the special category awards with wins in Disability, Health & Wellbeing, Learning & Development, and the Most Trusted Leadership. With two-thirds of the judgement coming directly from its staff, it's clear that Admiral has done an absolutely fantastic job attracting, engaging and caring for its people, and investing in the systems and learnings necessary to continue to foster strong workplace trust. We couldn't be happier to be working with Admiral Group, and can't wait to see what they come up with in the years to come."

The Great Place to Work Institute identifies a great workplace through three key elements – people trust their management, have pride in what they do and enjoy working with their colleagues.
