Star shoots into Top 100
Star is shining in the Sunday Times Best 100 Companies 2009 – a league of the top firms to work for in the UK.
Shooting in at no. 96, Star was one of nearly 1,000 companies fighting for a place in the prestigious league tables. Current employees were surveyed to examine Star’s working practices and culture.
The survey revealed that no one gets a chilly reception at the nationwide industrial refrigeration specialist. From day one employees receive private healthcare, and most don’t suffer from any work related stress (78% positive score).
Star gets its best overall scores for “giving something back” (65% – a Top 40 result) and a top 10 score of 80% for protecting the environment. The company was commended for designing, commissioning and maintaining cooling technology without environmental overheating.
Star’s Chief Executive John Rowell says: “We’re thrilled to have been named one of the 100 best workplaces in the UK. Staff at all levels are encouraged to participate and gain satisfaction from their contribution to the ‘climate change’ scenario.”
Star’s cooling solutions enable customers to reduce energy consumption, increase efficiency and minimise life cycle operating costs. With its headquarters in Glasgow, Star has annual sales of over £30million, and 267 staff working at a network of nine UK branches.
