Best Companies League Tables

Celebrating the very best in workplace engagement

To ensure that great organisations to work for are continually receiving the recognition they deserve, nationally, regionally and within their sector, in summer 2021 we combined Best Companies accreditation with a brand-new model.

Our new ‘League Table’ approach provides full flexibility and allows you to choose when best to survey your organisation, and as many times as you like, as well as increasing the opportunities to be recognised as a Best Company to Work For over the course of a 12-month period.

Accredited organisations have the chance to appear in up to four quarterly lists of the Best Companies to Work For, revealed via our unique Best Companies Live event platform and culminating in a hybrid virtual and physical celebration each November. This gives multiple opportunities to showcase your success and achievement nationally, regionally and in your sector.

Being named one of the UK’s Best Companies to Work For is an accolade like no other - is something that other organisations the length and breadth of the nation strive for – but only the very best achieve.

It recognises your commitment to your employees and demonstrates that you see workplace engagement as a vital part of your organisation’s success. While also being a unique opportunity to tell a positive PR story, in turn helping you attract and retain the best talent, set you apart from the competition and win new business.
