Kerfoot, part of the Avril Group, is a leading manufacturer and supplier of natural and organic oils for food, personal care, and related industries and has been officially accredited as a Great Place to Work-Certified™ organisation.

Certification™ is a significant achievement. Using validated employee feedback gathered by Great Place to Work® – the global authority on workplace culture, with its rigorous, data-driven For All™ methodology – the accreditation confirms that at least 65% of employees have a consistently positive experience at Kerfoot.

“We are thrilled to be Great Place to Work-Certified™!” said Sarah Stokes, Kerfoot HR Director. “It means a lot that our employees have reported a consistently positive experience in all aspects of their working life. This is important to us because we know that when our people have a high-trust experience every day, they are more productive, drive better business results, and make a difference to our customers.

“Our people told us that they believe they are treated fairly, with respect and have a great sense of camaraderie, as well as believing their managers are approachable and easy to talk to. Most importantly, 100% of respondents classed Kerfoot as a safe place to work. Of course, there is always more we can do and we’re looking forward to working with our people to maintain these positives and continue to improve in other areas,” she noted.

“We congratulate Kerfoot on achieving their Certification™,” said Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work® UK.

“Organisations that put the employee experience at the heart of their business gain their employees’ trust and, in turn, are truly able to build a great workplace culture that delivers outstanding business results,” he concluded.
