We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded three star ‘extraordinary’ accreditation, the highest standard for workplace engagement, from employee engagement specialists Best Companies.
The exclusive endorsement is based on the results of an extensive staff survey which collated honest feedback from our employees relating to their wellbeing, pay and benefits, opportunities for personal growth and the standard of leadership, as well as a host of other indicators. It recognises firms that truly excel, fostering an environment in which its staff are personally and professionally enabled to operate at the highest possible standard for their clients.
We were further praised for demonstrating a commitment to meaningful employee engagement through its continued investment in its staff via the National Training and Development Plan, the implementation of a strong charity programme and improvements to our induction processes.
As a result, we have for the first time, earnt a place on the Sunday Times 100 Best Small Companies to Work For list, one of only a handful of East Midlands firms to be featured. It was announced at the annual awards ceremony (Wednesday 21st February) that we were placed at number 41st in the prestigious nationwide tables.
David Stevenson, our Managing Director said;
“Having achieved “outstanding” status in 2016, I am thrilled that our efforts to improve our engagement processes have been rewarded with this extraordinary accreditation and a place on the Sunday Times Best Companies lists. We are very proud of our staff retention rates and I believe that a key factor in our success has been listening to and working with them to develop a rewarding package of positive engagement policies and great staff benefits.”
