The MCG Group showed its appreciation for the NHS by raising money for scrubs and meals for hospital staff at the height of the pandemic.

The collection of recruitment and logistics businesses, which was formerly known as the McGinley Group, is a Best Company to Work For 2020.

It specialises in the aviation and space, construction, education and creative and technology sectors and lives by its ‘GREAT' values. This includes employing GREAT (Genuine, Respectful, Ethical, Attentive and Tenacious) people.

Swift and regular communication with staff was key to ease anxieties and concerns during Covid.

Communication strategies included daily email updates from CEO Colm McGinley and a weekly all-hands Zoom call.

These sessions, during which the whole business would receive an update from Colm, or COO Grant Henderson, were hugely popular, as well as informative. The calls were a two-way process, with staff able to ask questions – and receive instant answers.

The Bounceback Hub, a new standalone employee website, contained vital information to help employees navigate their way through lockdown, look after their mental health and keep their training up to date.

The MCG Group is committed to its employees having a healthy work-life balance. It offers a discounted membership of 2,980 gyms and health clubs across the UK and runs a buddying scheme and an employee assistance programme. Support is also available from mental health first aiders.

Featured Workplace Factors

My Manager

My manager cares about how satisfied I am in my job

Every employee receives a quarterly (billing staff) or bi-annual (non-billing staff) appraisal, during which they are asked to give feedback on their manager's performance. Managers report on performance for the quarter and year to date during quarterly review meetings with their director.

My Company

81% of staff agreed

I love working for this organisation

iTouch, a new quarterly internal magazine, was launched after a request from staff for greater communication and more business updates. It features updates from the CEO and COO and financial performance and business strategy insights, as well as news about work anniversaries, birthdays, births and weddings.

Giving Something Back

68% of staff agreed

This organisation has a strong social conscience

All team members have been given washable, reusable face coverings made from upcycled marine litter, as part of the MCG Group's commitment to the National Geographic's pledge to prevent 1billion plastic items from reaching the ocean. Even the logos on the masks use ink from recycled cartridges.

Quote from the top...
“It’s been a really tough year for everyone, so it is fantastic to have been recognised nationally, regionally and within our sector through the Best Companies listings. It’s so encouraging to see that our focus to step up our employee engagement throughout the past 12months has been rated as ‘outstanding’ by Best Companies who are experts within this field.”

Colm McGinley, CEO - MCG Group
