IronmongeryDirect has been officially named as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing 2022 by Great Place to Work®. The Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing list recognises companies that promote a healthier and happier workforce with more engaged and committed employees.

To determine the shortlist, the Great Place to Work® institute analysed anonymous employee surveys to gauge their levels of wellbeing at work. The survey assessed holistic experiences such as, work-life balance, sense of fulfilment, as well as job satisfaction and psychological and financial security. Of the 250 companies shortlisted, IronmongeryDirect ranked 86th in the medium-size category.

At a time when 56.4% of UK employees are reported to suffer from work-related stress, the Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing Awards are an important spotlight on companies that go the extra mile to create a thoughtful wellbeing strategy that aims to serve as inspiration and encourage others to follow suit.

Dominick Sandford, Managing Director at IronmongeryDirect said:We are extremely proud to be named as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing. As a company, we recognise the importance of creating a workplace that serves our team by going above and beyond the average employer to create a positive environment for everyone to thrive in. We understand that a happy and motivated workforce also benefits our customers, and we are delighted that our continued dedication to the well-being of our employees has been recognised.”

“Being better for people is better for business, especially in tough times,” explained Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work® UK. “When employees feel genuinely cared for, their loyalty, engagement and productivity improve. Happier people also become brand advocates for the business and will often go the extra mile to provide a positive experience for their clients and customers. We’re delighted to launch our first-ever UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing list in 2022, shining a light on the 250 companies who have succeeded in ensuring staff experience high levels of wellbeing across the organisation. Hopefully this recognition and acknowledgement will inspire more workplaces to do the same in years to come.”
