Tamworth-based Instarmac Group plc has been officially named as a Great Place to Work 2019 UK Best Workplaces for Women in the medium sized organisation category.
To qualify, Instarmac Group had to meet a number of strict criteria, including having already been ranked as a Great Place to Work, employing a minimum of 25% women in their work force, having a minimum of 25% of women employed in higher positions, and to have demonstrated a confidence level of 80% from data gathered by direct feedback from the company’s female workforce.
Zoe Rees, Head of Sales at Instarmac Group plc (above), commented: “In any business, a workplace culture built on trust and inclusion that supports and empowers women throughout the various stages of their career is key to sustained company development, collaboration and innovation. At Instarmac we value diversity and feel it creates more, valued, engaged employees and therefore happier customers. Being named in the Best Workplaces for Women list is a fantastic achievement and clearly indicates the way in which our company values, empowers, and promotes the contribution of women across all aspects of our business.”
This is the third in a hat trick of impressive workplace awards that Instarmac have received to date this year. Earlier in the year, the growing West Midland Company received a Great Place to Work award for the third year running and was also presented with the Great Place to Work Excellence in Wellbeing Award: an award only given to companies who are committed to creating a happier and healthier work environment.
Karen Williams, Head of Human Resources, said: “We work hard here to ensure our recruitment and hiring is inclusive, as well as ensuring fairness around pay, recognition, training and development opportunities and work/life balance. This award helps us to strive to do better, as well as recognising the ways we have contributed to provide a supportive environment for women to progress within their careers and balance their work and family commitments”
