We would also like to extend our congratulations to another Arena sponsor, AO.com. The Middlebrook-based company has just been named the best retailer to work for in the country.
They came ahead of companies including John Lewis, IKEA and Waitrose after employees were invited to offer feedback about their employers on the website Glassdoor.com.
AO.com received top marks from its employees, thanks to it offering “perks” including free breakfasts and snacks, childcare vouchers and free gym membership at the USN Bolton Arena.
John Roberts, the company CEO, told the Daily Mail: “At AO, we firmly believe that people are our business and caring about our employees is a fundamental part of our culture.”
Gwyn Hughes, Commercial Manager at the USN Bolton Arena, added: “This just goes to show how much staff really appreciate being given useful services like free gym membership. They feel valued, and it also shows how well the Arena’s Corporate Membership Scheme works.”
