Sunday Times names Halfords among Best Companies to Work For

Halfords has climbed up The Sunday Times’ Best Big Companies to Work For survey list.

This time around the retailer has reached number 18th in list, up seven places from last year.

A survey revealed that 83 percent of colleagues feel they can make a valuable contribution to the firm’s success and 81 percent have fun together. In addition 75 percent feel their job is secure, while 71 percent are excited about the direction in which Halfords is going.

The ranking is entirely based on feedback from company employees, through a detailed questionnaire about workplace culture, practices and employee sentiment towards their employers.

Catherine Hambleton-Gray, Head of People at Halfords, says: “We’re thrilled to have again been named as one of the Best Big Companies To Work For by The Sunday Times. This is testament to the many initiatives we have in place for our colleagues including the 3 Gears Programme, our three year apprenticeship programme at Autocentres and wider community programmes including teaching primary school pupils about bike safety and maintenance.

“It’s great to know our colleagues are proud to work for Halfords and it’s thanks to them that Halfords is the success it is today.”

Halfords has 11,000 employees and last year was named number 25 in the Sunday Times Best Places to Work Survey 2014.
