Camaraderie, credibility and fairness are the top 3 reasons that have been cited by employees as to why Powerforce is such a ‘great place to work’. There are many other reasons, according to UK’s Best Workplaces™ ranking just published by Great Place to Work®. Powerforce was recognised in this year’s ranking along with 127 other UK organisations.
On the first time of entering the awards we are delighted that Powerforce has been recognised by its employees as an organisation that promotes trust, pride and camaraderie.
Within the five elements of the Trust Index© Survey, completed anonymously and voluntarily, Camaraderie, Credibility and Fairness received 80%+ scores, with Respect and Pride very close behind. This is reflective of the strong cultural identity that has been built since a change in management structure in early 2017.
Nicky Sanderson, Managing Director at Powerforce, commenting on the award said “we’ve always known we’re a ‘great place to work’ so it is fantastic that we have been officially recognised by Great Place to Work® as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces™. I am so proud of each and every member of our business for being at the heart of what we do and driving such exceptional results each and every day for our customers.”
The opinion of employees is key since the survey that employees answer (Trust Index©) represents 2/3rds of the final score to enter the ranking. The remaining third of the score is the Culture Audit©, a business-driven questionnaire that Great Place to Work® uses to understand and evaluate the organisation’s HR and leadership practices, policies and culture.
