Royal Oak operators among ‘Britain’s best employers’

Created on 04/06/2021 @ 09:47


The Coaching Inn Group, which operates The Royal Oak in Welshpool, has jumped in the ranking for Britain’s best employers.

The company has just moved up from 44 to 21 in the Best Companies top 100 list.

Kevin Charity, Chief Executive Officer of the group, which now operates 18 hotels and coaching inns in market towns across the country, said he was ‘chuffed to bits’ especially as the survey was based on what employees thought.

“Being placed number 21 now is amazing and demonstrates that we’re punching well above our weight,” he said.

“We’ve become a very people-focussed business over the past four years, just constantly maintaining that culture, keeping on improving and looking at what we can do better and how we as a management team can serve our people – that's been the key,” said Mr Charity.

Anyone joining the company has a golden opportunity for advancement through its Rising Stars Programme, which encourages team members to rise to the next stage by gaining hospitality industry qualifications, he said.

“We also have our Chefs Academy which again encourages all those in the kitchen teams to advance though seeking further qualifications and organises visits to market gardens, farms and our other quality food sources,” said Kevin.

The Group said it highly valued its enthusiastic team members and its additional comprehensive programme of staff benefits was a token of its on-going appreciation.
