Metro is a certified Great Place to Work

Metro has been officially certified as a Great Place to Work, in an accreditation that recognises our commitment to create an outstanding, rewarding workplace, with a strong focus on building a positive culture and supporting individuals.

Great Place To Work (GPTW) Certification recognises employers who create an outstanding employee experience and is dependent on the successful completion of a two-step process that includes surveying employees and an audit of their workplace.

Anonymous employee feedback, independent auditing and expert analysis determine the certification outcome which, if successful helps job seekers identify an employer that genuinely offers a great company to work for.

The Great Place to Work team applies data from thousands of organisations to gain deeper insights, with targeted feedback and benchmarking to encourage continuous improvement. 

We wanted to see how we compared to industry peers and other businesses, but also to listen to where we can improve, so that we can be the ’employer of choice’ for the next generation of logistics and supply chain professionals.

Going through the GPTW certification provides a comprehensive measure of employee engagement, trust, wellbeing, HR and management practices, with Metro’s combined scorecard 40% above the threshold required to become Great Place to Work certified.

Metro’s Managing Director, Grant Liddell said “This is another important milestone in Metro becoming the employer of choice in our industry and I am personally delighted to know that my colleagues enjoy our work culture, feel safe, valued and treated fairly.” 

“I know that Metro is a great company to work for and this certification will attract new talent to share that experience, because it gives our HR team a recruiting advantage. They can demonstrate a globally recognised and research-backed verification of positive employee experiences that define a Great Place To Work.”
