Staff engagement is in pole position at Porsche Retail Group, a business which considers the development and support of its employees to be at the heart of its success. The Group operates five Porsche centres in the southeast – among them the Mayfair flagship outpost – as well as one of Europe's biggest aftersales centres in west London and a central operations and trade parts business, which sits alongside the Reading head office.

Staff share a love of sports cars and passion for the brand, the company ensures they are on board its business journey in lots of ways, from putting them behind the wheel of the iconic luxury cars on experience days to providing career-boosting training, transparent communication from the leaders and even bringing in fish and chip vans to celebrate success with a shared meal. At the pandemic's outset Porsche Retail Group closed all of its businesses before the government mandated lockdown, which helped ensure staff it was acting in their best interest.

It also communicated to all furloughed staff early on that their salary would be topped up to 100%. In later lockdowns a robust operating procedure meant no more staff were furloughed and Porsche Retail Group could keep going even when the showroom doors were shut. The company is proud to outperform its peers in terms of profit per employee, profit per business unit and overall return on sales. Last year was no exception; it topped the industry across all three metrics.

Featured Workplace Factors

Leadership

90% of staff agreed

This organisation is run on strong values / principles

The senior leadership team hold regular updates to inform all staff on how the business is performing, set out clear business objectives and praise top performers. Managing director Adam Flint sent a weekly email to all employees during lockdown and since reopening he has featured in a film produced each quarter keeping staff updated on the operating climate.

My Team

85% of staff agreed

My team is fun to work with

While 2020 was a year most want to forget, Porsche Retail Group felt it could be one to remember – because if staff could get through 2020 they could get through anything. The forced closure and staff furlough occurred in year when the Group had expected record sales and service volumes. So, it produced glossy hardback review of the year book, with a listing and photo of every employee – delivered to them at Christmas inside Fortnum and Mason hampers.

Giving Something Back

80% of staff agreed

My organisation encourages charitable activities

The Group's workshops use lots of PPE and in March 2020 with the business shut down and national PPE shortages the company donated lots of its supply to local emergency services, frontline healthcare workers, hospitals and pharmacies. They even offered delivery, where possible.
