Sainsbury’s Argos were recently crowned champion in the Best Place to Work category at the Talent in Logistics Awards 2019. In our latest article we look at what makes Basildon distribution centre such an engaging workplace.
Here is an organisation with an eye firmly on its workforce. Nestled in the heart of Essex, lies Sainsbury’s Argos’ hugely successful Basildon distribution centre; a site with a truly customer and colleague-focused culture embedded at every level.
The site has achieved the highest levels of colleague engagement within their network, the best safety record, site & departmental productivities and a huge customer base.
By fully engaging its colleagues on the journey of change and improvement, Basildon is recognised as a ‘Centre of Excellence’ and was a clear winner for the Best Place to Work category at the Talent in Logistics Awards 2019.
On the night of the awards, the Sainsbury’s Argos team were delighted to pick up the accolade. Speaking to Mark Tasker, Operations Optimisation Manager, he said “What a proud moment for all the team. They have worked tirelessly all year, not for awards, but to truly create a fantastic workplace and inclusive culture. To win the award and be recognised really is the icing on the cake.”
