PULSE leaps up Best Companies List
Specialist healthcare staffing and services agency PULSE, has been awarded 46th place in the 2010 Sunday Times list of the 100 best companies to work for. Up 53 places from last year, PULSE also received a special award for employee engagement.
The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies Award recognises best practice in workplace management and identifies the top 100 companies to work for in the UK based on employee satisfaction.
This award is significant because the results are based on staff completing a questionnaire that evaluates the companys performance in five key areas leadership, internal communication, corporate social responsibility, employee welfare and professional development.
Richard MacMillan, CEO of PULSE, comments: We are absolutely delighted to have won a place on this years Sunday Times 100 Best Companies list and rising 53 places since 2009 is a fantastic achievement. Our employees are at the heart of what we do, and the great team at PULSE has allowed us to diversify into new services such as placing staff internationally and delivering highly quality staff to provide healthcare in the home which have both been a great success. With 2010 showing revenues climbing still further it proves that being a great place to work contributes to outstanding results.
One of the key initiatives that led to PULSEs inclusion in the list and won them the award for Innovation in Employee Engagement is their work on raising environmental awareness an internal campaign which involved a poster competition which saw employees send in photos of their children or themselves as youngsters and suggested green slogans.
PULSE was also awarded with a Best Companies two-star, outstanding accreditation.
