Driver Hire staff celebrate being named a Great Place to Work®
Great Place To Work®
We have always believed that Driver Hire is a fantastic place to work – and we are not the only ones who think so.
Great Place to Work® has ranked Driver Hire 43rd in its 2018 list of the top Medium businesses with the best workplace environments and cultures in the UK – up 8 places from our debut at the awards last year. This is a great accolade and proof of our commitment to both our workplace and our people.
Driver Hire was recognised along with just 127 other UK organisations which made the shortlist, and only 66 in the medium category. The award recognises our culture of integrity, respect and determination, highlights our commitment to the welfare and development of our workforce and the pride that our employees take in being ‘Driver Hire People’.
Taking part in the survey also helps us to get even better by identifying areas in which we can further improve our workplace. We will continue to invest in people and practices to make sure Driver Hire continues to be one of the best workplaces in the UK.
We believe in collaboration and support
Investors in People
Since 1995 we have been accredited by Investors in People, the gold standard for people management that places great importance in making sure employees enjoy their work and can build fulfilling careers.
This year our accreditation was renewed for another three years and we are proud to not only meet the standard within Group Services, but for every Driver Hire office in our network.
We acknowledge that our success as a business is reliant on the success of our people, and we strive to help develop potential, improve skills and increase job satisfaction within our workforce. By being given encouragement, praise and the tools to succeed, our people can achieve their goals both individually and as a team.

Proud to work for Driver Hire
We perform an annual satisfaction survey across the business to find out how happy our employees, customers and candidates are to work with Driver Hire.
The answers speak for themselves – 90% of our customers rate our service as either good or excellent, and 93% of our office-based employees said they are proud to work for Driver Hire.
Even more impressive is the feedback from our candidates – those not directly employed by Driver Hire but who we place into jobs – with 91% saying they are proud to work for us.
The temporary contracts we supply may only be for a short amount of time, even a matter of weeks, so for our candidates to feel such affinity with our business is a testament to the positive culture that we nurture.
