Britvic recognised for employee engagement

Britvic Soft Drinks has been recognised for its employee engagement excellence with the Good Employer Award at the Food and Drink Federation (FDF) Awards.

The awards celebrate organisations across the food and drink industry that make an extra effort to create a positive working environment for employees.

Britvic was recognised for its newly-designed workplace in Hemel Hempstead, which encourages employee interaction across all departments.

The new offices feature informal meeting spaces, which has enhanced staff social relationships, raised the profile of charitable activity across the organisation and increased employee engagement.

Steve Barnes, director of economic and commericial services at FDF, said: “The FDF Awards showcase inspiring examples of food and drink organisations taking a responsible approach to their employees, their customers and the communities in which they operate.

“We congratulate Britvic’s positive investment in its employees. Workplace wellbeing schemes are very important for maintaining healthy and happy employees, lowering absenteeism and increasing employee engagement.”
