Wren Kitchens, the UK’s number one kitchen retailer, has been named the country’s best retail employer in a new survey.
Wren, which employs more than 4,400 people nationwide, claimed the top spot in the Indeed league table ahead of household names, such as John Lewis, Marks and Spencer and IKEA. The rankings are based on millions of employee ratings and company reviews, focusing on factors such as career progression, culture and job security, as well as benefits and salaries.
Founded just ten years ago, Wren has 78 showrooms across Scotland, England and Wales and manufactures around 2,000 kitchens a week across its three state-of-the art production facilities in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, all of which are delivered on its own fleet of lorries.
In their reviews, team members say they are highly valued by Wren and well looked after. The company provides onsite gyms with all the latest equipment and healthy subsidised food and drink in its restaurants.
Wren has a dedicated training academy at its headquarters in Barton-upon-Humber, Lincolnshire where all staff receive a detailed induction, whether they work in Retail, Manufacturing, Transport or Customer Service.
Mark Pullan, Managing Director at Wren Kitchens, said: “We are delighted to receive this recognition and I would like to thank everyone who took the time to complete a review.
Wren has grown at an amazing pace since we set it up almost ten years ago and the fact that we are already the UK’s number one kitchen retailer is a testament to the amazing team of people we have. We are very fortunate to have 4,412 people who are passionate, hardworking and focussed on doing their best for our customers, and this culture permeates the entire business. Many of our team have been with us from the beginning of the journey and it has been wonderful to watch them develop as the business has grown.
The business is continuing to expand and we are always looking for ambitious people who share our ethos and who want to build a rewarding career.”
