Hunslet-based The Right Fuelcard Company’s (TRFC) focus on creating job opportunities for the disadvantaged and long-term unemployed has been acknowledged in a high-profile award.
The independent distributor of Shell, Esso, Keyfuels and UK Fuels cards to UK businesses, has clinched the Diversity honour in The Yorkshire Post’s Excellence in Business Awards 2017, where it was also a finalist in the Outstanding Employer category.
The accolade endorses TRFC’s unique recruitment and development programme which taps into the skills of people including ex-offenders, long-term unemployed, young people with no work experience and ex-military personnel – all of whom struggle to reintegrate into society.
Celebrating and showcasing the region’s top companies, the awards were presented by BBC Breakfast and Watchdog broadcaster, Steph McGovern.
The Outstanding Employer shortlisting recognised how TRFC is making major inroads in the critical areas of recruitment and staff well-being through its transparent and coaching led culture, which is resulting in continued success and growth.
Listed 33 in the Sunday Times Sunday Times Best Small Companies to Work For 2016 with a 3 star accreditation – the highest star that can be awarded – for exceptional levels of employee engagement, the company recently passed its three year IiP reaccreditation with flying colours.
TRFC business director, Adam Walsh, said:
“Winning this award reinforces how our pioneering approach to diversity in employment gives people from excluded groups – who often experience discrimination – the confidence, self-esteem, training and skills to achieve what they thought was unachievable. We always look beyond individuals’ situation to identify their inner talent.“
