RUSH named as a SUNDAY TIMES TOP 100 BEST COMPANIES TO WORK FOR
2011 has already got off to a fantastic start for the UK’s fastest growing hairdressing group. Following on from their multi-award winning 2010, RUSH Hair picked up their first award of 2011 – The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work for.
This is the first time a hairdressing salon or group has been awarded this prestigious accolade and RUSH Hair have done it in true style, coming in at No 60 on the leader board and gaining the ‘outstanding’ Two Star status, an achievement which takes most companies three or four years to accomplish. RUSH Hair’s strongest categories were My Manager, My Company and Personal Growth, which was improved on by only two other companies, putting them in the Top 3 in the country.
RUSH Hair’s Head of HR, Claire Aitken was responsible for co-ordinating the entry, and was delighted at the result. “To achieve a place so high up in the ranking with our first entry is a tremendous achievement. The entire company supported us every step of the way and to be scored so highly is an incredible testimony to the team at RUSH.”
From the appraisal, employees found working with RUSH Hair inspiring, giving an 80% positive score putting them in the top 20 of the survey, RUSH recognise employees skills and use them, which gave them a score bettered only by eight other businesses. RUSH Managers motivate their teams and are seen as excellent role models and as a company, employees say they help them fulfil their potential and talk openly and honestly with them – which was only bettered by just six other organisations. A phenomenal achievement in their first year of entering the Awards.
Chairman of RUSH Hair, Andy Phouli adds, “Stell, George and myself are extremely proud that RUSH has achieved this incredible accolade. To be the first hairdressing group included with mulit-national and blue chip companies is a tremendous testimony to the hard work, dedication and team spirit of RUSH.”
