U-Drive Shortlisted for Employer of the Year Award 2024

12th March 2024 |

We are thrilled to announce that U-Drive has been shortlisted as 'Employer of the Year 2024' in The Business Magazine’s prestigious Solent 250 Awards.

Awarded to a company fostering an exceptional workplace, this nomination recognises U-Drive’s commitment to providing a working culture that helps our incredible team thrive and we couldn’t be more proud. 

For over four decades, U-Drive has supported and developed local talent with an open-door policy and an environment where team members feel valued while working towards a shared goal.

What sets U-Drive apart is not just our high quality fleet of commercial vehicles and excellent customer service, but also our commitment to the individuals who drive our success. We take pride in our team members, many of whom have joined the "10 Year Club", a testament to U-Drive's dedication to building lasting relationships where people want to stay and work long term. And we believe in promoting from within, resulting in some of our longest-serving employees starting with us through apprenticeship or graduate schemes.

"At U-Drive, we believe our success comes from motivating and empowering our team members to be the best they can be,” said Richard Sutton, Director of U-Drive.

“Our mission is to provide the best vehicles and customer service in the vehicle hire industry, and we understand that a strong team is crucial to achieving that goal. We value and reward those with the vision and drive to grow with U-Drive, offering continuous training and career development opportunities.”

Being shortlisted for the 'Employer of the Year Award’ by sponsors, Southampton University Business School, is an honour and we believe it is a testament to the hard work, dedication, and talent of every member of the U-Drive team. 

Winners of the Solent 250 Awards 2024 will be announced on 18 June.
