The award ceremonies to announce the winners of the Sunday Times Best Companies to Work for List 2016 will be taking place on 24th and 25th February in London. The Small Business and Not-for-Profit List winners will be announced on 24th February, followed by the Mid and Big organisations winners on the 25th.
The awards recognise those organisations who go above and beyond to boost employee engagement and create an exceptional, inspiring culture; and there is no better way for UK businesses to show the world that they have created an awesome place for their employees to work than by being recognised on the prestigious List.
Last year’s winners set the bar high and included the likes of TGI Fridays, Simply Business and American Express. Now companies across the country are waiting with bated breath to see who makes the list this year, and if any new entrants appear.
The glitz, glamour and emotion of the night can be followed on social media using the hashtag #bestlists2016 and here is a quick video of last year’s fabulous event just to whet your appetite:
To date, Best Companies has measured how nearly three million people feel about their employer, and the List remains the most respected and accurate engagement survey in the UK.
The List is based on real, detailed feedback from employee surveys, which have been meticulously honed by academics at Plymouth University. Updated every year to ensure relevancy, the questions are designed to cover all areas of employee happiness and wellbeing. Today more than ever, the most in-demand people seek out jobs at organisations that have received a ‘Ones to Watch’, 1, 2 or 3 Star Best Companies Accreditation rating.
Best Companies Founder and Chief Executive, Jonathan Austin, explained why securing a place on the List is such a big deal:
“Employees who work for a highly-engaged organisation can feel proud of their employer, benefit from having managers who are more likely to care for them, leaders who listen to them, more opportunities for personal growth and teams that support each other.
“They are likely to perceive their employer in a positive light, experience lower levels of stress and enjoy a better work-life balance.”
By measuring engagement and participating in the Lists, companies have the potential to become top talent magnets, gain advantage over competitors and be recognised as a Best Company to Work For.
