ICMIF member NFU Mutual (UK) has been recognised as a ‘Gallup Exceptional Workplace’. It is the only UK headquartered organisation to win this award, and one of only 40 companies across the globe.
The Gallup Exceptional Workplace award is given only to organisations that prove they achieve exceptional performance through a highly engaged workforce. The award follows a submission to Gallup’s panel of expert judges, which requires entrants to clearly evidence the link between engagement and business outcomes. The panel recognised that NFU Mutual create a culture of engagement, both within teams and across the whole organisation.
Trisha Jones, HR Director at NFU Mutual, said: “This is incredible recognition for NFU Mutual. Engagement is something we don’t take for granted – it’s fundamental to the future success of our business. Having strong working relationships moulds everything we do and being recognised for this award is testament to the commitment, passion and hard work that everyone puts into making NFU Mutual a Great Place to Work.”
Explaining the importance of being an exceptional workplace, Gallup said: ‘These businesses build a culture that supports the employee experience, focuses on strengths, and coaches talent to its full potential. This creates a culture of excellence that puts them far ahead of their competition, and they see returns in retention, engagement, increased productivity, better customer experiences, true organic growth and higher revenue.”
Janet Lloyd-Bunt, NFU Mutual employee at head office, said: “NFU Mutual is a great place to work because it cares for its people as well as its customers. You realise once you’ve worked here for a short while, it genuinely wants to provide a great service and a lot of effort goes into achieving this. I have now switched all of my own insurance across to NFU Mutual as I have such faith in the company which says it all! No other company compares in my mind. I certainly wouldn’t want to work anywhere else!”
