The annual ranking is widely acknowledged as the most rigorous and extensive research into employee engagement in the UK. All the scores and ratings that are assessed to compile the lists are based on employee opinions.
“That our ranking is based entirely on staff responses shows that the company is living by its values, putting the motivation and well-being of our people at the heart of what we do. We set out to create a genuine, fun atmosphere in our work and I think that the Best Companies survey demonstrates we’re succeeding.”
The citation on Hydrock by Best Companies states that 84% of employees are inspired by Brian McConnell’s leadership – 10th among mid-size organisations in the survey – with 86% believing the company is run on sound moral principles (13th in the survey).
