Simon Wheeler has been Managing Director of Agria Pet Insurance for seven years. He commented:
“Following some really positive internal feedback from our annual staff survey in the autumn, we still wanted to go further to improve certain areas of the business. Taking part in the Great Places to Work® survey would enable us to benchmark ourselves against best in class, peer organisations to overtly identify and address our development areas. This, in collaboration with Great Places to Work®resources, would make Agria an even better place to work … swiftly and effectively.
“The fact that, in our first year working with GPTW, this process has seen us recognised as a ‘UK Best Workplace™’ is a phenomenal achievement and testament to the absolutely awesome Agria team!”
