Best Companies have been producing the Accreditation standard since 2006 to acknowledge excellence in the workplace. The Best Companies methodology includes independent and confidential employee surveys focusing on eight key areas: leadership; managers; personal growth; wellbeing; working in teams; giving something back to society; engagement with their job and organisation and how satisfied individuals are with their pay and benefits.
Like every organisation, by conducting this employee survey ResourceBank was able to gain valuable insight into the needs of its employees. ResourceBank achieved a 90.41% feedback response rate and the rating from the survey resulted in the 1 Star Accreditation.
Each year Best Companies and The Sunday Times celebrate the best small, mid-size and big workplaces in the UK. Employees from participating organisations are surveyed based on a rigorous methodology. This enables Best Companies to compile lists of the top companies in each size category as well as those that receive 1,2 or 3 star ratings or Ones to Watch. Every year the prestige of this list builds, making this the competition that every organisation wants to be involved in.
Sarah Crocker, Client Solutions Director for ResourceBank, is delighted with this latest achievement for the business, “We entered Best Companies in order to benchmark ourselves against others, and to gather objective feedback from our employees. We were really pleased almost all our employees completed the survey and delighted to be awarded 1 star accreditation. We will now use the results to build upon and improve our workplace engagement”
