Good Work Pledge logo advanced

We’re delighted to be recognised as a great place to work by a scheme designed to improve employment standards in the North East.

Launched in 2020, the North of Tyne Combined Authority’s ‘Good Work Pledge’ aims to recognise companies for their commitment to valuing employees, promoting health and wellbeing, communicating with staff and giving them representation, having a balanced workforce and demonstrating social responsibility.

Improving workplace wellbeing

We’ve been awarded the Advanced Good Work Pledge for the value we place on our people and firm-wide initiatives designed to improve well-being in the workplace.

The recognition comes on the back of a flurry of award wins, including being named The North East Chamber of Commerce’s Most inspiring employer (large business) at the Inspiring Female Awards and a Platinum accreditation from Investors in People (IIP).

Supportive culture

Nicola Leyden, director of HR said: “We’re delighted to be recognised for creating an environment where our people feel valued, appreciated and encouraged to do their best work. When our people feel positive about their workplace, it has a huge impact on the quality of service we provide to our clients.

“Every single person at Muckle is involved in supporting each other and doing their best to make work better, so it’s fantastic to be formally recognised by the North of Tyne Combined Authority.”

Jamie Driscoll, North of Tyne Mayor said: “We want a positive future for everyone in the North of Tyne. Good work is central to this. We want an economy that works for everyone, where people are fairly rewarded for their labour and where no one is left behind. We want every employer to sign our Good Work Pledge.”
