Retailer Sainsbury’s Argos has been named the Best place to work at the annual Talent in Logistics Awards, in recognition of its high employee engagement.

The awards, organised by Talent in Logistics, a support business for the transport, logistics and warehouse sector in the UK, aim to recognise and reward employers and individuals working within the logistics industry and related supply chains that make a real difference to the sector.

The awards ceremony was held on 27 June 2019 at the Hilton DoubleTree, Milton Keynes, following Talent in Logistics’s annual conference.

Sainsbury’s Argos received the Best place to work accolade, a new award for 2019, in recognition of its high employee engagement as well as its safety and departmental productivity at its Basildon distribution centre.

Meanwhile, Tesco, Scania Training and South Essex College were awarded for collaboration in people development.

Ruth Edwards, business manager at Talent in Logistics, said: “Our awards are testimony to the unsung heroes we have in this sector. Standards were exceptionally high, showcasing the very best in innovation, as well as work ethic.

“The impressive innovation happening across the logistics sector is incredibly encouraging, especially considering the important role the sector has to play as we look towards a future of changing the perception of logistics to recruit new talent, particularly from groups that are currently under-represented.”
