RTS Group achieves highest rating in prestigious Best Companies award

We are delighted to announce that for the first time RTS Group has achieved the maximum Three Stars accreditation in the Best Companies award for 2018.

The award is given in recognition of our excellent level of staff engagement. Our MD Malcolm Miller said: “This confirms what we always knew - RTS Group is a great place to work, alongside some wonderful clients, and we have a clear understanding of our mission as a leading learning and development agency: to create world-class automotive retailers.”

To enter for the accreditation, a survey is conducted anonymously and is completed by everyone in the company. It covers eight areas that Best Companies see as being the foundations of an outstanding workplace.

  • Personal Growth
  • Leadership
  • My Company
  • My Manager
  • My Team
  • Giving Something Back
  • Wellbeing
  • Fair Deal

This is the first time we have attained the maximum Three Stars; since we first entered the awards we’ve achieved Two Star status – still a great achievement.

Malcolm Miller, Managing Director of RTS Group, added: “We are very excited to have Ashley on board. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience from his long career working in the automotive sector, covering learning and development across many aspects of the industry and he will be a fantastic addition to the team.”

Best Companies shows we really are a great place to work. If you’re interested in joining our team, we are hiring. Check out our latest vacancies here.



Malcolm is RTS Group’s Managing Director so he oversees everything in the company and spends a large proportion of his time on new business development. He joined us initially as an associate, setting up the Mazda Academy, and became MD in 2013. He is a Fellow of the Institute of the Motor Industry.

Malcolm’s background is as a freelance trainer, largely in the automotive sector but also within the finance industry. His first ever job was as a paperboy – he delivered 40 papers a day from 6am, and was paid double on a Sunday because of the weight he had to carry!

He admits he has a somewhat untidy desk and should probably get the coffees in a bit more often, but his good humour and go-getting approach means the team let him off. In his spare time, Malcolm is a rugby referee travelling across the south of England, and he has three grown-up children. Malcolm describes himself as “curious” which makes him the perfect person to explore new opportunities for RTS Group.
