Assessors from the Sunday Times awarded the business a 3 Star Accreditation – the highest accolade a company can receive – for “exceptional” levels of employee’s engagement. The ranking was based solely on employee’s feedback provided through an independent questionnaire.
TRFC also received a special ‘Discovering Potential Award’ for the pioneering Bayford Foundation – a dedicated training arm which has forged strong partnerships with community organisations such as the Prince’s Trust and Probation Service. The Foundation has created a wealth of sales jobs in the energy industry which are delivering long term career opportunities for local people.
TRFC business director Adam Walsh was presented with the special award by the Rt Hon Priti Patel, MP and Minister of State for Employment, at the ceremony.
Launched against a challenging financial backdrop in 2011, TRFC is marking its highest ever growth and profitability, which it attributes to its powerful culture of enabling employees to achieve their potential via structured training and development plans for career progression.
Launched from its Hunslet headquarters with a team of three, the business, an independent distributor of Shell, Esso, Keyfuels and UK Fuels cards, today has more than 60 employees and has expanded to new offices in Harrogate and York within the space of nine months.
