The UK’s biggest personal insolvency practice Creditfix has taken 15th spot in a major employee poll to uncover the best companies to work for.
Headquartered in Glasgow, the firm is the only debt advice specialist to appear in the 2018 “50 Best Companies to Work For in Scotland”, scoring high marks in three key areas – wellbeing, community initiatives and employee engagement.
Workplace engagement expert Best Companies, whose results are published in the Sunday Times, carried out the survey and used anonymous employee responses to generate the Regional Best Companies Index (RBCI) score.
Creditfix was praised for its positive office atmosphere, relaxing breakout areas, and its community outreach, which includes supporting mental health programmes at Motherwell Football Club.
The survey also revealed that 94 per cent of employees believe they can make ‘a valuable contribution to the success of the company’, and feel up-to-date with what is happening.
Commenting on the results, Andy Taylor, director at Creditfix, said: “We work with more than 75,000 clients across the UK, who are experiencing severe financial difficulties and all the emotional stress that brings. It’s therefore crucial that we look after our employees and ensure their own health and wellbeing is not negatively impacted.
“As well as providing health insurance and tickets for music and sport events, we have created a working environment that enables staff to take time out when needed, and also get out of the office to volunteer.”
Last month, Creditfix announced plans to expand with a second office in Salford, Greater Manchester with the creation of up to 50 new jobs in the region.
“This is a really exciting time for us, and we’re looking forward to establishing ourselves as an attractive place to work in Salford,” added Andy.
