NOBODY IS DRIVEN too hard at Fleet Hire. The firm, which offers vehicle management services, holds second place in our survey for keeping its 53 employees free of daily exhaustion, with a 70% positive score. One novel approach at this new entry is a quarterly health and wellbeing competition, run as a league table with cash prizes for first, second and third place. A stress management committee holds "stress-free days" to help the 53 staff find calming methods that work for them. It is worthwhile: staff report low stress (87%). Consultations on diet and blood pressure are available at the company's base in Solihull and gym membership is subsidised. Staff say their health is not suffering because of work (88%). A typical worker at Fleet Hire, providing services from finance to full outsourced fleet management, is an administrator earning about £18,800. The firm says "common sense is effective" to govern flexible working arrangements to cover opening hours and staff needs. Working parents love the extra day off allowed for Christmas shopping. Fleet Hire ranks among the top 10 Best Small Companies to Work For for ensuring that people have a good work-life balance (83%). Founded in 2001, the firm now has a second office in Milton Keynes. It offers profit-related bonuses and free private healthcare. Last year the benefits package was updated to include a popular car salary sacrifice scheme, like the one it designed for customers. Employees are satisfied the company uses all their skills (67%) and up to three-quarters of them seize the opportunity for free external training. Graham Hale, the chief executive, runs a principled operation (89%). Almost everyone at Fleet Hire spent three paid days volunteering for a good cause last year. The firm backs charity efforts (93%) by holding fundraising days to mark sporting events such as Wimbledon or World Cup football, see picture. Its workforce say it supports the community (79%, a top 10 score). Managers review an anonymous suggestion box each month and listen to staff (84%). If people showed signs of too much pressure, bosses would be quick to make sure they took their foot off the gas and slowed down (83%). www.fleethire.co.uk
