26th April 2018: In an exciting ceremony last night, Britvic was recognised as the number one soft drinks manufacturer to work for by the Great Place To Work® (GPTW) Institute. No other soft drinks companies featured in the large business rankings. When compared with the broader business community, Britvic GB was ranked an impressive 22nd overall in the large business category (500+ employees).
Britvic, which employs 1,778 people in GB (c4,700 globally), moved up 15 places in the GB GPTW rankings this year; the largest improved score of any business in the large company category.
Zareena Brown, GB HR Director, says: “This is a fantastic achievement for everyone at Britvic. Together and individually, we’re on a mission to create an inspiring place to work where everyone in every role is empowered and supported to achieve their ambitions and enjoy the journey. We’ve made some great progress, as our GPTW ranking shows, but our mission continues.”
In 2017, Britvic’s French business entered the Great Place to Work® rankings for the first time and came 19th. This year France has ranked again for the second year running and improved their position by 2 places to come 17th out of 25 companies. They are 1 of 3 FMCG business and the only soft drink manufacturer in their workplace category.
In February 2018, Britvic Ireland was recognised as the 11th ‘Best Large Workplace in Ireland’ by the Great Place to Work® (GPTW) rankings, moving up a staggering 11 places. This was the highest ranking FMCG workplace in the category.
