Sunday Times Best Companies to Work For award ceremony dates announced
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 business winners on the 25th.
The awards recognise those businesses who go above and beyond to boost employee engagement and staff happiness. To date, Best Companies has measured how nearly 3m 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.
Best Companies founder and chief executive, Jonathan Austin, commented, “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.”
