Silver Sands is celebrating as part of the Bridge Leisure group, which has been named one of the UK’s best employers.

Bridge Leisure Parks, which owns Silver Sands Holiday Park, claimed 82nd place in The Sunday Times’ annual Best Companies To Work For survey.

The Sunday Times asked more than 270,000 employees for their views about their employers and their working environments, helping to create the final rankings for the prestigious list.

The company, which employs more than 40 people at Silver Sands, was praised by staff who said that they had fun with colleagues (84%), are not bored at work (76%) and they wouldn’t leave tomorrow if they had another job (74%).

In its review, The Sunday Times praised Bridge Leisure for giving all team members 27 days holiday and encouraging flexible working. The company was also congratulated for its rewards and recognition scheme that sees managers hand out lottery-style scratch cards for outstanding work and customer service, with prizes including paid time off and cash rewards.

Rebecca Grant, general manager at Silver Sands said: “As a holiday business our number one aim is to ensure guests have a good time when they stay with us. Finding innovative ways of keeping our team happy and motivated is key to this.

“We are proud to have played our part in this incredible achievement – the team at Silver Sands is smiling more broadly than ever.”

Team members were asked to rate their company’s leadership skills, their wellbeing and opportunities for personal growth, and how they feel about their own manager and colleagues.

This was the 17th time The Sunday Times had published the list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For, using extensive data gathering and analysis across all business sectors.
