Xaar’s is a great place to work – and raises an epic £37k for charity





Each of Xaar Group’s UK headquartered businesses – Xaar, FFEI and Megnajet – has been officially accredited as a Great Place to Work-Certified organisation.

Using validated employee feedback gathered by the workplace culture authority, the accreditation recognises that over 65 per cent of employees in all three businesses enjoy a consistently positive working experience.

The accolade reflects the work of the group’s sustainability roadmap with one of its four pillars – people – providing a focus for its commitment to become an ‘employer of choice’.

Recognising that this is just an important step in a continual process, a cross functional team has now begun mapping out an ongoing programme to build on this result.

John Mills, CEO at Xaar, said: “We are proud to have received accreditation as a Great Place to Work, recognising that a significant number of our employees have reported enjoying a consistently positive experience in their jobs.

“Through the programme we develop we can continue to both retain and attract the very best people and become an ‘employer of choice’ across all our businesses.”

Meanwhile staff at Xaar raised £18,610 and the company matched the amount, bringing the total to £37,220 in one year.

Break, based in East Anglia, was chosen as Xaar’s charity partner and has been a key element of the Group’s Sustainability Roadmap – which defines the business’s commitment to two of the company’s four sustainability pillars, People and Local Community.

Xaar Group UK employees, based in Cambridge, Huntington, Kettering, and Hemel Hempstead, took part in fundraising activities including golf days, running half-marathons, sweepstakes, cakes sales, a sponsored silence, and the Three Peaks Challenge.

Rachel Cowdry, CEO at Break, the ‘Cambridge Standing Tall’ art trail organisers, said: “It has been a privilege working with Xaar to reach this phenomenal fundraising total for Break. We’ve loved getting to know the Xaar team and we have been incredibly inspired by the generosity, kindness, and dedication they have shown.

“The money raised will go towards making brighter futures for vulnerable people in the region and everyone at Break is really looking forward to continuing our partnership with Xaar over the next two years.”
