Cornish Bakery becomes top-rated bakery in the Best Companies to Work For list
The fast-growing Cornish Bakery chain has achieved an Outstanding grading in its first entry to the Best Companies to Work For list.
The company secured the highest scorings of any UK bakery company following anonymous feedback from its employees.
Cornish Bakery founder Steve Grocutt said: “It comes as no surprise that we’ve gone straight in with an Outstanding grading on our very first entry to the Best Companies to Work For list – the only bakery company to achieve these high levels of employee engagement evidence.
“This is an incredible accomplishment for our teams and one that I am extremely grateful for. We set out to, and are, winning beautifully and I truly believe the high cultural standards being achieved at Cornish Bakery are, and will be known as, industry-leading.”
Earlier this year, Cornish Bakery announced that its jobs were oversubscribed by more than fifteenfold in new locations whilst the company’s staff turnover is currently the lowest ever recorded.
Grocutt added:: “Our people are the jewel in the crown. Happy teams = happy customers = great results. And the results are already off the charts. ‘Aim Higher’ is one of Cornish Bakery’s core values, and we just keep going higher and higher, because we are nourishing our people and driving our values out across the company.” ”
Jonathan Austin, chief executive of Best Companies, said: “Cornish Bakery has particularly excelled in the ‘My Team’ Workplace Factor. Every year, the organisation takes its teams away for a night and two days of five star fun, camaraderie, and competition. Growth and recognition are essential in creating a culture at an organisation that people want to be a part of.
“We know from our data that if you are in a situation where you’re not growing and developing your people – firstly, the organisation can’t grow and develop, and secondly, you’re not going to keep your people. This clearly is not the case at Cornish Bakery and it’s great to see.”
