A Burnley motor group is celebrating after being named by its employees as one of the best to work for in the UK.

Chorley Group, which employs 240 people across six locations, was awarded by industry publication Automotive Management.

It’s the latest in a long line of honours for the family run business, which has franchises in Burnley, Blackpool, Chorley, Preston and Wigan.

The award, which was based on feedback from employees, looked at key aspects of working life at motor dealerships throughout the country, including leadership and planning, culture and communications, working environment, relationships with managers, training and development and pay and benefits.

Adam Turner, sales director for the group said: “We’re thrilled to be named as one of the UK’s dealerships to work for in the UK. Chorley Group is a family business, and we’ve worked hard to build a team where staff members feel they’re valued as part of that family.

“It’s great to have such positive feedback from our employees because they’re absolutely key to our continued success and growth as a business.”
