The only fashion business to be voted one of the UK’s Best Workplaces 2012
We always knew that Pentland Brands was one of the UK’s best places to work. Now everyone else knows too. All of us at Cirrus would like to congratulate everyone at Pentland Brands, which has just been officially recognised as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces 2012. Pentland Brands, the home of Speedo, Berghaus, Mitre, Lacoste Footwear, and many others, is the only fashion business to make this year’s list. At number 16, it is ranked higher than any other sports brand – quite an incredible achievement, particularly as this is the first year they’ve taken part.
We’ve been privileged to work alongside Pentland Brands as a leadership development partner for some time now, and they are an absolute pleasure to work with: forward-thinking, innovative, people-focused and very exciting.
As CEO Andy Rubin, says, Pentland Brands has successfully “created a workplace that gives people the opportunity to shine within a culture which encourages collaboration, creativity and development.” This unique culture is founded upon a belief in learning, passion, courage and creativity. Pentland Brands really puts people first and the Great Place to Work Institute UK commented on how the company’s culture and lifestyle generates real internal pride and enthusiasm for its brands and business.
Employees genuinely appreciate the family approach of the business, and there is a great deal of trust in colleagues and senior leadership. This contributes to Pentland Brands’ enviable (and now officially recognised) position as an outstanding employer.
Well done to everyone at Pentland Brands on a well-deserved award. We’re looking forward to being a part of your increasingly successful future.
