Hyundai Motor UK has been recognised as one of the Sunday Times 'Best Places to Work 2024'. This prestigious award, powered by WorkL, celebrates the outstanding achievements of Britain’s top employers in creating exceptional workplace environments.

The report said: “Hyundai comes from the South Korean for modernity and the car company reflects this by fostering an environment of innovation, empowering its team of 208 in Leatherhead in Surrey to push boundaries and challenge convention.”

This year’s nationwide survey highlights the best workplaces across several categories, acknowledging companies that excel in supporting diverse groups, including women, the LGBTQIA+ community, disabled employees, ethnic minorities, and both younger and older workers.

We are honoured to receive this recognition and remain committed to enhancing our workplace environment to support the wellbeing and professional growth of all our employees.
