Bacardi Brown Forman Named a Top 5 Place to Work

Tired of having a bad back and a permanently cross boyfriend/girlfriend?

Bartenders who decide to leave ‘front line’ bartending are increasingly looking to the spirits companies for their next step.

A brand-ambassadorial or marketing role can often put experience gained behind the stick to good use, and sometimes more importantly, allows a bartender to stay within an industry they have grown to love but have had to step back from for a variety of practical reasons.

Should you find yourself in this situation, you could do worse than look to Bacardi Brown-Forman Brands (BBFB), if the Great Places to Work 2011 Survey is to be believed.

The survey, conducted by the Great Places to Work Institute (we promise this isn’t a made-up organisation) placed BBFB within the top 5 places to work in the UK, at number 4 – A first for a spirits company.

Caroline Parkes, BBFB HR Director says, “We are thrilled Bacardi Brown-Forman Brands have been awarded a top five position and above all delighted that our employees feel so fulfilled. Positive comments included that it is a fun and rewarding place to work, with people feeling supported and respected.”

Bacardi Brown-Forman CEO, Mark de Witte, added: “We have a clear two-way communication of our ambitious vision for transformational growth to all our employees; this gives them clarity in their roles and enables them to contribute in an entrepreneurial way to our business success. Our company culture drives passion for excellence, our employees have great team spirit and know that everyone can make a real difference, we celebrate success together.”
