Last updated: Monday, 25 January 2021

ScotRail has been recognised as a Top Employer in the United Kingdom for 2021.

The train operating company is one of just 1,600 organisations in 120 countries/regions, across five continents, to be certified by the Top Employers Institute programme.

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 programme certifies organisations based on the participation and results of their HR Best Practices Survey.

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

Gerry Skelton, ScotRail’s HR Director, said:

“We are delighted to be able to celebrate with each member of the HR team at ScotRail, our re-certification as a Top Employer for 2021.

“The recognition of the hard work, commitment and professionalism of the team, our processes, policies and practices, is well deserved.

“We continue to demonstrate the determination in the team to maintain the highest levels of people performance, wellbeing and development, as core elements of our people strategy.”

David Plink, Top Employers Institute Chief Executive Officer, said:

“Despite the challenging year we have experienced (which has certainly made an impact on organisations around the globe), ScotRail has continued to demonstrate the power of putting their people first in the workplace.

“We are proud to share this year’s announcement and congratulate the organisations who have been certified in their respective countries through the Top Employers Institute programme.”
