MarketMakers Rank 33rd in the Best Workplaces 2016 Awards!
What a great couple of days it’s been for MarketMakers. With Marketing Week Live and the Great Places to Work awards, we really have been super busy!
On Wednesday night a small group from MarketMakers and ReallyB2B travelled to London for the Great Places to Work awards, MarketMakers had been shortlisted in the top 50 Best Workplaces (medium category) for the seventh consecutive year. Yes, seventh! As an organisation, we are so proud of this. Not only are we growing as a business but our employees are growing in their careers and are really enjoying working for us.
Out of three million businesses, we came 33rd, the team had a great carnival themed night with a meal and champagne to celebrate!
There are a few specifics within MarketMakers that really make us stand out as a Great Place to Work. Firstly, we have a strong recruitment team who bring on bright and valuable people to join our ever-growing MarketMakers team. The new starters are introduced into the business by our recruitment team and begin with our Learning and Development team until they are ready to join the floor.
As a business we also work to inspire our employees so they always know they have space to grow at MarketMakers, this is done through personal development programmes within our Business School. When our employees work hard we believe they deserve to be rewarded. These rewards range from promotional perks and social calendar events to incentives where employees can win trips abroad and other gifts.
We hold meetings twice a week where we introduce new employees, applaud those who have been promoted or performed well and most importantly, hear from the key members of the MarketMakers group who each week motivate our work force.
“The biggest reason that makes this company a great place to work is the people. Whilst that sounds like a cliché, it’s totally true, and it is all about the attitude we choose to bring into work each day and how we treat each other.””
We would like to say a massive thanks to our employees for helping us get this award, here’s to another great year!
