Mission: To provide market leading certification products for our customers in the building services industry. Vision: To be an inspirational badge of honour for our customers and statement of excellence for their customers.
EMAIL IS BANNED at the weekend and at Christmas, New Year, Easter and bank holidays to make sure staff employed by this building certification body are never overwhelmed by their workload. People at Certsure tell us their jobs do not interfere with their responsibilities at home, scoring 72% positive, a top-20 ranking in our list.
In addition to annual leave, if any of its 308 employees find themselves coping with a domestic crisis, Certsure offers up to five paid days off a year to deal with any curve balls that life may throw. Staff also have access to free telephone counselling as well as yoga classes and subsidised gym membership for those working at its headquarters in Dunstable, Bedfordshire.
Certsure was born out of a partnership between the Electrical Safety Council and the Electrical Contractors’ Association, and now offers building regulation schemes to support the construction industry. Employees are confident they can make a valuable contribution to the organisation’s success (85%).
People say their managers are open and honest with them (85%) and chief executive Emma Clancy is inspiring (76%), responding personally to calls and emails. She played a prank during Employee Appreciation Week last year by being marched through the office by two fake policemen who turned out to be singers.
Certsure celebrated its 60th anniversary last year with a 1950s-style street party. Anyone unable to attend didn’t miss out on the fun — they were given a commemorative bottle of sparkling wine.
