Screwfix given top employer award
The top employer award came in recognition of the retailer's 8,500 strong workforce, as well as its "impressive development programme" which consistently fills over 60% of all manager appointments. Judges were also impressed with the way employees on the ground can directly develop and suggest programmes to innovate the business based on customer needs.

Screwfix ceo Andrew Livingston said: "We are absolutely delighted to win these awards. It's another fantastic milestone for Screwfix and offers real recognition for our team's hard work.

"At Screwfix we are fully aware that our staff are central to the success of the company and we need a strong team to take the business forward and support our plans to further expand our network of 457 stores. Colleague engagement and development is core to our success. It drives our growth through a culture of involvement, empowerment and continuous improvement that makes us a great place to work and ensures we offer fantastic convenience to our busy trade customers."

The judges recognised Screwfix's significant achievements over the last 12 months, including a strong internal development programme which aims to promote and recognise excellence both internally and externally, real-time colleague feedback with Your Screwfix, Your Say, which gives employees a voice within the company, and a staff satisfaction rate in excess of 90% in its annual HR survey.
