Mike Brooks, Thetford depot general manager, said: “This book is independent recognition of our forward-thinking approach we have to our people and how we always strive to be the best employer to work for.
“It's a fantastic achievement to know employees here at Thetford think we're such a decent firm to be with.
“Our employees are, and always will be, our greatest asset and it is their talent and commitment to excellence that makes us the best in the business.”
The authors of the book wrote: “The company is led from the front by managing director Tom Bell. He has been with TNT in the UK since day one when the business had just 500 employees, eventually landing the top job as MD in the late 1990s.
“Bell has overseen enormous growth (currently eight pc per year compared with the overall express market's four pc), and the increase of turnover and profits every year.
“Bell is clear that a key part of this is down to his staff.”
Some of TNT s achievements in the past 12 months in Britain s Top Employers 2008 include delivering more than 20,000 training days through over 100 different courses, and distributing more than £150,000 of vouchers since the employee reward and recognition scheme Delivering More started.
