Roadchef receives Futures Employer Award

29 February 2024

We are thrilled to announce, in collaboration with The ADHD Foundation Neurodiversity Charity, that Roadchef is the first recipient of the Futures Employer Award. Roadchef’s commitment to providing opportunities and experiences to children and young people in schools across our Group has played a pivotal role in securing this win.

The Futures Employer Award honours organisations that lead the way in creating workplace cultures and environments that both celebrate neurodiversity and accelerate young people's futures when entering the workplace.

Roadchef's contribution includes facilitating Future Ambassador sessions, workshops that delve into individual journeys to success, providing a first-hand look at diverse experiences and the opportunities they can offer. Additionally, their commitment extends to hosting children and young through our Work Inspiration programme, offering them hands-on experiences in a range of roles.

The award was presented on Tuesday 5 March at the Roadchef Conference & Awards Ceremony, where hundreds of team members came together for the event.

Tracey Fletcher-Ray, Chief Executive Officer of Witherslack Group, commented: 

“It is truly fitting that Roadchef should be the very first recipient of our WG Futures Employer Award.

A huge congratulations to everyone at Roadchef for such a very well-deserved accolade. Your commitment, creativity and shared values have had a hugely positive impact on our young people, and in turn their aspirations and plans for their next steps beyond education. Their partnership has been a clear trailblazer for all our employer partnerships, which now stand at in excess of 150, and right from the very first conversation we could see they possessed the collective passion and energy to really invest in the futures of our young people.”

Laura Bunn. HR Director of Roadchef commented: 

"We are thrilled to be honoured with the inaugural Employers Award. Our collaboration with Witherslack Group is of great significance, as it allows us to actively contribute to the development of young minds in a compassionate manner, aligning with Roadchef's core value of caring. This partnership has been steadily expanding each month, and we eagerly anticipate the promising journey that lies ahead."
