Volkswagen Group UK likes to go the extra mile for its workers. From getting England cricketer Kevin Pietersen to sign autographs for employees to importing actor Will Smith's car from the film iRobot for a staff sneak preview or handing out ice cream on hot days, the company knows how to make its staff feel good at work. Its people share the organisation's values — their belief in them scores 84% positive. No wonder one in five employees have worked here for more than 15 years. The company, which imports Volkswagen, Audi, SEAT and Skoda vehicles for sale through dealerships and also markets the brands, employs 533 people in the UK. The passion, enjoyment and pride of staff are the driving forces behind the success of this company, which last year recorded £114.4m in pre-tax profits — employees' give the company an 80% positive score for loving their work and 88% for pride in working for Volkswagen Group, the tenth and fifth highest scores respectively. Staff, about two-thirds of whom earn more than £35,000, have individual development plans and can learn languages and do job swaps. The company culture is consultative and there are no internal offices, making communication between management and peers informal and team spirit strong — 70% of workers say they get a buzz out of working with their colleagues. Recognition for individual good work ranges from a word of thanks to a bottle of champagne or a bouquet of flowers while group efforts are rewarded with barbecues, fireworks displays and family fun days. Benefits include free private healthcare, a minimum of 27 days' holiday, enhanced maternity and paternity pay and a share of the company profits. And the company doesn't just care about its staff. It supports a number of charities including the industry's benevolent fund and the Prince's Trust.
