Merlin Entertainments has climbed to 15th place on the 2015 Sunday Times 25 Best Big Companies to Work For list.
Over 1000 companies participate in the Sunday Times “Best Companies” survey each year, which measures employee engagement via a survey covering My Manager, Leadership, My Company, Personal growth, My Team, Giving Something Back, Fair Deal, Wellbeing. Last year Merlin was listed in 119th place.
Commenting on the announcement, Tea Colaianni, Group HR Director for Merlin said, “This is a fantastic achievement for Merlin, and a testament to our continuing investment in our people and in their training and development; and the hard work of our managers and HR teams around the globe. People are at the heart of Merlin’s success. However much we invest in ‘hardware’ and attraction design and development, it is our people who ultimately create the unique, buzzing, fun and magical environment we work in and which delivers the amazing visitor experience for which Merlin is known.
“This Award is also very important to us because it is based on feedback from our own teams, and reflects what it means for them to work at Merlin. We were very proud to read their comments, and while this is a UK based survey our own internal feedback shows that the sentiments that they expressed are echoed worldwide across the Merlin ‘family’. “
Tea Colaianni will be speaking at blooloopLIVE London 2015 on May 7th.
