Rapport has been recognised as an employer of choice having achieved a prestigious two star rating from Best Companies. This latest achievement follows a hugely successful year for Rapport. The business is continuing to flourish with a string of new contract wins in 2016 and so far in 2017, with more in the pipeline.

The two star recognition from Best Companies is highly sought after and has been achieved following a comprehensive survey which looks at satisfaction and engagement, including factors such as personal growth, management, opportunities and wellbeing.

Greg Mace, Managing Director, Rapport said: “Celebrating our amazing Rapport ambassadors is really important to us. We work hard to ensure our people are engaged in the business and live and breathe our core values, so it’s fantastic to have achieved both a Best Companies two star accreditation and a great position in the Top 30 Best Places to Work in Hospitality index.”

“At the heart of Rapport is our truly exceptional people who go the extra mile to deliver brilliant services to our guests. Our ambassadors feel proud to be part of our outstanding team and I believe this is what sets us apart and makes Rapport such a successful business.”
