It takes the best people with the widest range of expertise across any combination of vehicles and funding methods – combined with industry-leading technology and world-class service – to keep customers moving, says Zenith Group Holdings Ltd, the UK's leading independent leasing, vehicle outsourcing and fleet management provider.

“Personal leasing, neater fleets, flexible funding and the best service. That's us – Zenith,” the company adds. “Cars, vans, trucks and specialist vehicles? Got that. Mission critical and rental? Yep, we do that too.”

The company, founded in Kirkstall, Leeds in 1989, started out with just eight people and now has a workforce of more than 750. It prides itself on the employee experience and strives to provide customers with the best of the best.

Built on values chosen in by its workforce that include honesty, innovation, passion and being agile, Zenith felt the best approach during the pandemic was to keep employees united. With staff already versed in using market-leading technology, the company utilised technology to its advantage, sharing information in a range of formats. Webex and a new HR system were instrumental in this.

Zenith made every effort not just to keep its people in the loop but also to give them a platform to ask questions and raise concerns. It did this with surveys, feedback sessions and an employee forum.

Now, in readiness for the latest gear change, Zenith is planning a gradual increase of presence in the workplace with a rotational/phased return to ease employees back into the office. It takes the best people with the widest range of expertise across any combination of vehicles and funding methods – combined with industry-leading technology and world-class service – to keep customers moving, says Zenith Group Holdings Ltd, the UK's leading independent leasing, vehicle outsourcing and fleet management provider.

Featured Workplace Factors

Personal Growth

70% of staff agreed

This job is good for my own personal growth

Annual objectives are set each year for all employees, including managers. Annual appraisals and regular 1:1s examine team statistics and include speaking to others within the organisation, and having open conversations with managers. Managers also take advantage of a 360 feedback tool to gain feedback from peers and their teams.

My Team

80% of staff agreed

My team is fun to work with

Zenith continued to run its social events virtually where possible, recognising that many people lost all social interactions during lockdown. Some teams ran virtual offices, with people logged into Webex so they could see and communicate with one another as if they were in the workplace.

Giving Something Back

76% of staff agreed

This organisation has a strong social conscience

Last year, the company supported Plastic Oceans as its annual charity, but the most successful campaign was at Christmas when it educated employees on ways to minimise the waste they create during the holidays. Zenith has also pledged to make its fleet 100% electric by 2025.
