tmgroup are delighted to announce that they have been accredited as a UK Top Employer for 2021 with a ‘1 star’ rating. This puts them in very good company with larger and more established businesses audited by Top Employer – including KP Snacks, Capco, AWE and Kaplan – who have also gone above and beyond to create a positive business culture, as Jonathan Austin, Founder and CEO of Best Companies, comments:
“Congratulations to tmgroup on this significant achievement of a “1 star”. This award recognises that they understand the importance of workplace engagement and genuinely value their people.”
This accreditation marks a first in the company’s history, and spans across the entire group – including Conveyancing Data Services (CDS), mio and Property Searches Scotland. It’s all-the-more rewarding for being achieved in the midst of a global pandemic with the majority of employees working from home too, as Joe Pepper, CEO of tmgroup comments:
“I’m delighted that tmgroup has been recognised as a Top Employer. It is testament to the outstanding work that team:tm has put into developing and growing a successful business culture over the past few years. It is particularly gratifying that we have been able to achieve this despite the challenges presented by the last 18 months, and I am hugely excited about the potential we have as we continue to focus on further developing that culture as we return to something approaching normal.”
Providing a voice for tmgroup employees
Top Employer is an award given by the Top Employer Institute; awarding only those companies that have consistent HR practices across a number of key areas such as: People Strategy, Workforce Planning, On-boarding, Training, Culture, as well as Employee Engagement within the business.
No mean feat, achieving the Top Employer award has taken a lot of focus and hard work, as Dan Creed, Head of HR comments:
“Providing a voice for our employees has been paramount to our success and we couldn’t have achieved this without our colleagues whom represent team:tm. Across our businesses, we have a superb HR team that understand the long-term value that is created by our people plan goals. The business has enhanced key employee areas throughout this process, some of which have now been shortlisted for further UK HR awards (as of September 2021). Together we have embedded several strategies that have enabled our teams to go above and beyond with increased pride and personal performance. We now have an established culture and work community that is outstanding, as it supports and inspires excellence across all levels, as well as makes us a great place to work.”
