Quote from Tom O’Byrne, Chief Executive, Great Place to Work®“The UK Best Workplaces ranking continues to go from strength to strength. This year, we are delighted to recognise a record 80 organisations who have achieved the coveted status of Best Workplace, a workplace that has high trust and highly engaged employees. We know that this accolade is recognized by Best Workplaces and their audiences as the mark of a quality employer and can be a potent recruitment tool. First and foremost though, all Best Workplaces recognise the strategic importance of creating and maintaining high trust, great workplaces as this can improve business performance and, for many, the bottom line.”
“I am once again delighted to congratulate all our Best Workplaces on their achievement and thank their leaders for continuing to champion the importance of trust in the workplace. In the current economic climate, it has never been more crucial for organisations to recognise the importance of creating and maintaining great workplace cultures and understanding how this can improve performance. The jury is no longer out – employee engagement works and to be engaged you need trust!”
