Receiving the highest accolade – a 3-star accreditation – from Best Companies, the award showcases MSC’s “World-Class” employee engagement.

As part of its commitment to building a workplace in which employees can thrive, MSC has been working with Best Companies since 2018. Now, improving on its 2020 “Outstanding” – or 2-star – accreditation, and following its continued development of organisational culture and employee wellbeing, MSC has been awarded the highly regarded 3-star accreditation from Best Companies.

The accolade reflects the company’s forward-thinking approach to employee engagement and recruitment, through which employees are encouraged and supported to continually develop.

Dave Darby, Managing Director of MSC Industrial Supply Co. UK, said, “MSC UK has placed a great deal of focus on creating an environment where our people can operate at their best. This has involved a significant piece of work over a two-year period to further develop our culture and leadership approach. We believe passionately that by investing in this area it will directly impact the customer. To assess our progress, we use an external organisation called ‘Best Companies,’ which is highly regarded in the UK and is a leader in its field. Following a recent independent Employee Survey, I am proud to announce that we have received a coveted 3-star rating. Based on Best Companies’ categorisation, this places MSC UK in a ‘world-class’ category in terms of employee engagement. Our customers need a supplier that deeply cares about providing the best possible service, now more than ever. Our belief is that this will never be truly possible, unless your people are able to operate in an environment where they can excel, be themselves and develop and grow each day. This is an external recognition of the hard work and dedication of everyone in our business, during one of the most challenging times in our history. I feel very proud to be part of the MSC team, we have an incredible group of committed, hardworking associates who always go the extra mile for our customers.”

A 3 Star accreditation is the highest standard awarded from Best Companies. It celebrates a businesses’ commitment to their employees and reflects their “World-Class” levels of engagement. Best Companies works with some of the world’s best-known organisations to measure, improve and recognise excellence in the workplace.
