Altro named one of the country’s best companies to work for – again

Letchworth Garden City-based Altro Ltd, have been ranked 81 in the coveted Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work for rankings, making the top 100 for the 9th time.

Altro is a family-owned manufacturer of flooring and wall cladding systems for construction and transport.

The Sunday Times Best Companies to Work for list is the annual ranking of ‘the cream of Britain's happy and motivated workforces’.  With over 1,000 companies registered to take part, it is considered the most extensive research into employee engagement carried out in the UK.

Altro’s 350 UK employees were invited to take part in the survey, which asked questions about how they feel about the support they receive from the company, their training and development and their opportunities for career growth, amongst others.  The company scored highly in all areas with particularly high scores when employees were asked about their team, well-being, personal growth and how they rate their manager.

Richard Kahn, CEO Floors and Walls, Altro Ltd says: “We are a family-owned business with family values and it has always been our ethos to put our people first and to work closely together.  We have a fantastic group of people at Altro and we do what we can to ensure they are happy in their work and in their workplace. We’re delighted to be recognised for this by the Sunday Times. The 100 Best Companies to Work for list is compiled using feedback directly from employees and for me, that’s the most important factor. It means we’re getting it right.”
