In February 2009 Nando’s in the UK was singled out as one of the best places to work at by the Best Companies Annual Accreditation Awards.
Nando’s is a South African-born and bred franchise restaurant chain, which expanded across the borders of the country and now runs franchises in 25 countries outside SA. The first Nando’s opened in the UK in 1992 (in Ealing).
The Best Companies Annual Accreditation Awards measures the level of employee engagement in the business, with companies rated according to their ability to inspire staff, encourage development, provide excellent customer service and build strong teams.
“This is an unbiased and independent guide to some of the UK’s best work places for job seekers and graduates. The review process includes a survey on the organisation, but at least 90% of the company score comes from employee feedback. Employee surveys ask for feedback on eight key factors, namely leadership, my manager, personal growth, well-being, my team, giving something back, my company and fair deal. Our three-star rating is a huge pat on the back for everyone at Nando’s and proves that listening to our teams, creating a fun environment to work in and focusing on delivering great customer service, can deliver great results,” the company said.
No wonder ever more Nando’s outlets are opening in the UK.
