Receiving recognition
from Best Companies

Be rewarded for how your employees really feel about you as an organisation

Showcase yourself as one of
the Best Companies to Work For in the UK

Our accreditation programme is the standard for workplace engagement. Just like the way that the Michelin star system signifies excellence in the hospitality sector, our star-based ratings system is the equivalent used to recognise the very best in the workplace.

Earning a Best Companies accreditation tells your clients, partners, investors, and employees that your organisation understands the importance of workplace engagement and genuinely values its people. It can help you attract the very best talent, improve staff retention and even help you win new business by showing you hold yourself to the very highest standards.

It also generates positive marketing and PR opportunities, raising your organisation’s profile as part of a nationally recognised and respected scheme. For those organisations that achieve the highest accreditation ratings, there is an opportunity to be listed as one of the UK’s Best Companies to Work For – a highly sought-after accolade.
