Best Companies Live Q1 2022 - Our first look at League Tables!

Friday 18th February saw us successfully deliver our first virtual quarterly event of 2022. After months of planning and preparation, during this spectacular Q1 live showcase event we witnessed our new league table model in action and celebrated the very best in workplace engagement!

Once again hosted by TV presenter, Dan Walker and broadcast live from Media City in Salford on via our very own specially designed platform, the first quarterly ‘Best Companies Live’ event aired showcasing our new league table model, recognising the very best organisations nationally, regionally and by sector.

During the event we were joined by guest speakers that represents a wide variety of sectors to discuss themes which are currently effecting most of us in some way, The Climate Crisis, Leadership in a Changing World, Attracting & Retaining Talent, Managing the Impact of Fatigue and Flexibility that Works for Everyone.

You can catch-up on the Best Companies Live Q1 2022 event below...

Welcome and The Climate Crisis

Join us as we kick off February’s Best Companies Live event with one of the most pressing topics of our time: the climate crisis.

Our host, Dan, will introduce the day’s agenda before getting into discussion with our panellists to understand why the Earthshot Prize, COP26 summit, and Blue Planet movement have been catalysts for both conversation and action in the workplace.

We’ll look at how making organisational commitments to protect the planet can help not only contribute to achieving environmental goals, but also to increase engagement within the workplace.

Hear from the Sector Leaders

Join us as we speak to a selection of guests from the winning sectors about what it takes to achieve the #1 spot.

Attracting & Retaining Talent

With the ‘great resignation’ seeing more employees than ever choose to move on from their roles, just what is the best tactic for recruiting and retaining talent in the current climate?

Join Dan as he speaks to some of the organisations that are leading the way in their approach to catching the eye of the jobseeker, through to unique onboarding practices and how they are adopting new, innovative ways of engaging and developing employees to ensure they are a creating a workplace culture that people don’t want to leave.

Managing the Impact of Fatigue

After a constant battle with change and disruption in many employees’ personal and professional lives, the rise of burnout and the effect of fatigue is a reality that some are now facing.

Wellbeing – and the importance of mental, and physical, health – is still high on the agenda for many organisations, but what happens when the level of support needs to go from short or mid - term intervention to long - term strategy?

In this session, Dan will speak with panellists to understand the approaches they’ve taken to look after their employees at all levels and how the measures taken have been received by their people and impacted on engagement.

Highlights Reel

Flexibility that Works for Everyone

If any question is likely to draw a diverse pool of answers, it’s “what would be your ideal working arrangement?”

From those who crave the inclusivity of the office and others who prefer a solely home - based approach right through to the many who prefer a hybrid option somewhere in -between, deciding just what level of flexibility works for everyone is a challenge many organisations are currently facing.

Join us as we hear from a panel of guests who have decided on their future working approach and share insight into how they came to the decision – and why it works for them.
