How does it work?

It starts with the right questions

It’s not just knowing what questions to ask, it’s knowing how to ask them. We have developed an academically rigorous methodology that gets to the heart of what people want and expect from their working lives.

This unique system looks for patterns, connections and correlations between employee responses, taking you beyond just identifying how your employees feel – it uncovers why they feel that way.

Beginning your engagement journey

Your engagement journey can be as brief or as far-reaching as you like. Wherever your organisation needs to go, we'll be with you at every step to make things as simple as possible.

A typical journey might include the following 6 stages:



If your BCI score is high enough, you'll earn an accreditation from 1 star through to 3 star. This offers organisations a tangible framework for benchmarking and improvement. It also generates positive marketing and PR opportunities, raising your organisation's profile as part of a regionally and sectorally recognised accolade.

Our manager accreditation recognises managers that are going above and beyond to support their teams. The certification provided celebrates strong levels of managerial engagement to showcase their achievement both internally and externally.

Whether you want to attract and retain top talent, benchmark your organisation against others or simply recognise and celebrate great workplace engagement, an accreditation from Best Companies can make that happen.
