At the 2012 Great Place To Work UK Awards, dunnhumby was ranked 15th, beating Nike, Ikea and Starbucks, amongst others.
In November 2011, UK-based dunnhumby employees took part in a satisfaction survey to enable GPTW to develop an in-depth understanding of our company and advise us on how to become better employers, and improve overall employee engagement.
The awards dinner, held at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, London, hosted representatives from 75 companies - the top 25 from each of the three company size categories. With more than 500 employees in the UK, dunnhumby is in the 'large' category and was up against the likes of Ernst & Young, Volkswagen and the winners, Admiral Group.
Kevin Logeman, Human Resources Director for Tesco Markets, said:
“Great Place To Work has been pivotal in helping dunnhumby become a better employer. Across the company, People Teams were formed as a result of the employee feedback provided in this survey. The purpose of the People Teams is to help inspire and enable our employees by creating measurable objectives. The effort and energy invested in Learning and Development, and in enabling a healthy work-life balance for all employees, has brought higher satisfaction scores in both of these areas for 2012.”
