Last updated: Thursday, 20 January 2022

ScotRail has once again been recognised as a Top Employer in the United Kingdom.

Being certified as a Top Employer showcases an organisation’s dedication to a better world of work and exhibits this through excellent HR policies and people practices.

The train operating company is one of 1,857 organisations in 123 countries and regions, across five continents, to be certified by the Top Employers Institute programme, which certifies organisations based on the participation and results of their HR Best Practices Survey.

The survey covers six HR areas, consisting of 20 topics including People Strategy, Work Environment, Talent Acquisition, Learning, Well-being, and Diversity & Inclusion and more.

Marie-Therese Weighton, ScotRail Interim HR Director, said:

“We are delighted to be able to celebrate our re-certification as a Top Employer in 2022, our third year in a row.

“This accolade is a fantastic representation of the hard work and commitment of our colleagues in HR and across the wider business, in what has been another challenging year for the rail industry.

“I am extremely proud of everyone as we continue to maintain the highest levels of commitment to people performance, diversity and inclusion, wellbeing, and development.

David Plink, Top Employers Institute CEO, said:

“Reflecting on the demanding year that has, like the year before it, impacted organisations across the world, ScotRail has continued to show that it prioritises maintaining excellent people practices in the workplace.

“They continue to meet the challenges of the changing world of work while working tirelessly to make a positive impact on the lives of their workforce. We are pleased to celebrate and applaud the organisations that have been certified as Top Employers in their respective countries this year.”
