Company Information

TURKEY WITH ALL the trimmings is cooked by staff at MotoNovo Finance each December for local people who otherwise wouldn’t get a Christmas dinner. Goodwill extends way beyond the festive season at this Cardiff-based motor finance business, a subsidiary of FirstRand Bank that has been trading under its current name since 2012. A culture of giving back is top of the agenda, and last year £59,000 was raised for charity through events ranging from weekly dress-down Fridays to sponsored mountain climbs, with the management team led by group chief executive officer Mark Standish matching funds raised by individuals.

The workforce of 512, up by 139 in a year, welcomes the way this organisation encourages charitable activities — an 89% positive score for this question. They say it has a strong social conscience (84%). Giving back also means a return to the classroom for those who volunteer to help young readers at primary level as well as offering interview and CV coaching for older students.

Work is an important part of people’s lives here (82%) and they feel proud to be part of the company (87%). Their dedication is rewarded with initiatives such as a corporate credit card given to one and all. The balance is topped up with credit to treat those who hit targets or just as a thank-you.

Help is available for those who want to reach a personal goal such as quitting smoking — the sort of support that gives staff confidence in the leadership skills of those in charge (84%).
