Helping make the world a better workplace

This is, and always will be, our Primary Purpose

Pug with dogfood

The secret ingredient

We spend a lot of time helping other organisations get what we call 'Organisational Clarity' - the secret ingredient of growth and engagement. Organisational clarity is all about having a clear Primary Purpose, clear Core Principles, an Outrageous Ambition and an ingenious plan.

We believe in eating our own dogfood. Day in day out we're inspired by our Primary Purpose, make decisions based on our Core Principles, are driven by Outrageous Ambition and take clear steps forward through our ingenious plan.

Our Primary Purpose

We won't settle for anything less than a global step-change in the quality of employment. This shift demands new thinking, new practices and new behaviours that we aim to instill through creative solutions that measure, recognise and improve employee engagement.

Our Principles

Our day-to-day decision-making and behaviours are guided by four key principles:

Care

Care about what you do, how you do it, and who you do it for

Humility

Take what you do seriously, but don't take yourself too seriously

Responsibility

Take 100% responsibility

Discipline

See the best in yourself, see the best in others

Our Outrageous Ambition

We will be seen as the honest broker in every country in the world that has the potential to share our passion. We will be internationally recognised as the biggest single contributor to positive social change throughout the world.

The Skills Gap Paradox

Discovering your employees' untapped potential

The skills gap is often cited by business leaders, politicians and HR professionals as a fundamental barrier to economic growth and innovation.

But instead looking immediately towards recruitment, should we be looking to our existing employees to increase productivity? Is there untapped potential in our people that we can release to bridge the skills gap?

The answer is a resounding yes.

What you'll learn:

  • The extent to which UK employees feel they have hidden talents their organisation isn't taking advantage of
  • The correlation between unused skills and overall engagement
  • What the top performing organisations are doing to support employees' personal development
  • The 4 key behaviours of top performing managers

The partnership that we've had with Best Companies has had a massive impact on the culture of the organisation and I think we have really safeguarded our future. We can also see that there are lots of other areas we could improve in and I think with the help of Best Companies supporting us with the feedback that we get, it's really going to reinforce what we're doing and help us in achieving the goals that we need to achieve as a business.

We believe participation in the programme helps us to attract quality staff who are looking for a long, progressive career rather than just a job, as well as attract suppliers who want to work with us and customers who want to buy from us. Our employees feel engaged and inspired by what they do and the Best Companies programme is pivotal in enabling us to celebrate our successes whilst also recognising tangible goals for the future so that we can continue to be one of the UK’s best places to work.
