The Berkeley Partnership gets to the heart of companies' transformation needs to help them achieve their ambitions.

Based in London and New York, the independent management consultancy's clients include household names, multinationals and government departments.

Berkeley takes pride in working within clients' leadership teams, rather than looking on from the outside, and tailors its approach to each client's needs.

Long-term relationships are at the core of the company's success, with over 90% of its work coming from repeat business and referrals and more than 85% of clients using the firm more than once.

The company puts its people first – a commitment that became more important than ever during the pandemic. To nurture its culture of togetherness, regular work meetings were complemented by a programme of fun activities including ‘disco bingo', a Halloween murder mystery and ‘Through the Berkeley Keyhole' – an in-house take on the popular TV show.

An expert in wellbeing ran a firm-wide session on how to cope in highly stressful situations and employees were given the option to take paid leave to care for sick family members or teach children during school closures. This time off was not deducted from their annual leave.

Employees also rolled up their sleeves to help with the pandemic response. This included providing free consultancy services to an organisation setting up drive-through testing and to a group providing support to tens of thousands of people who were shielding.

Featured Workplace Factors

My Company

91% of staff agreed

I love working for this organisation

Star performers are nominated by the partners for quarterly care packages. This could be a foodie treat, a trip to the theatre or a night in a hotel with their spouse and is always accompanied by a personalised thank you from the manager who put them forward for recognition.

Wellbeing

87% of staff agreed

I am happy with the balance between my work and home life

Employees' health and happiness is paramount and every member of staff is entitled to a £300 annual wellness benefit to spend on anything they think will enhance their wellbeing. Berkeley also pays for staff to order plants or seeds to grow at home.

Giving Something Back

95% of staff agreed

This organisation has a strong social conscience

Even before Covid, Berkeley promoted the use of video and tele-conferencing – reducing face-to-face meetings with clients and the subsequent carbon footprint. Other green credentials include a local suppliers first policy and the provision of ‘real' crockery and cutlery in the office, to discourage the use of plastic items.
