Chorley Group wins best employer award again

Chorley Group has been named the best dealership to work for by Automotive Management magazine for the third consecutive year.

The group’s dealerships in Burnley, Blackpool, Preston and Chorley were all honoured in the awards, which are based on independent feedback from employees.

Judges were looking at different aspects of working life at the dealerships including leadership and planning, culture and communications, working environment, relationships with managers, training and development and pay and benefits.

Adam Turner, group sales director, said: “It’s an incredible result — to have four of our dealerships honoured is phenomenal for the Chorley Group.

“We’ve worked hard to build a team where staff members feel they’re valued members of the family. The business has been built on a very clear ethos: treat everyone — customers, suppliers and our employees — as you want your mother to be treated. This award is not only recognition of the strength of that philosophy, but of our strength as a team.”

Judges praised the positive and friendly culture highlighting activities like birthday cards and gifts for new babies, high engagement rates of employees in staff feedback.

The award is the latest in a long line of honours for the family-run business, which has franchises in Chorley, Preston, Wigan, Burnley and Blackpool and employs 240 people.

Adam added: “This is a very special award for us because the positive feedback comes directly from our employees and we appreciate that they are key to our success and growth as a business.”
