BMT Recognised As Outstanding Employer in the Global Business Excellence Awards
The judging panel recognised BMT’s continued focus on its staff and how effective communication, management and support was recognised as the cornerstones of the organisation’s success. BMT’s Employee Engagement Index of 80% compares very favourably with the ‘good’ industry benchmark of 50% and in the most recent staff survey, 84% of respondents were ‘satisfied working for their operating company’.
The chairman of the judges said: “BMT Group has differentiated itself by offering its 1,400 employees exceptional benefits and staff initiatives. Its Profit Related Pay scheme is outstanding and to date it has paid out £40 million to staff members. It is also one of the few companies to be established as an Employee Benefit Trust, giving staff a stake in the company and a say in their future. The range of other incentives and benefits are second to none. Consequently, BMT has high levels of staff productivity and loyalty. BMT is an exceptional winner and a role model in its sector.”
Peter French, Chief Executive of BMT Group comments: “We are extremely proud to receive this accolade. Engagement with all of our staff is something that we take very seriously because without them, we wouldn’t be the successful company we are today.”
