We are delighted to have been named one of the Best Companies to Work For in London 2018.
The list of 75 companies is taken from results from the Best Companies survey, the largest of its kind in the UK. This is the first time we have been named on the list of top employers in the region, and is in addition to featuring in the 2018 list of Best 100 Companies to Work for in the UK.
Over 97% of our employees completed the survey last autumn, which analysed 70 questions on a 7-point scale in eight key categories: Fair Deal; My Manager; My Team; Leadership; Giving Something Back; Personal Growth; My Company and Wellbeing.
In addition to the high ranking, the results from the survey awarded us with a Best Companies two-star accreditation, signifying outstanding employee engagement. In particular, confidence in the senior management team and leadership of the company were emphasised, along with a collegiate culture with 90% of staff agreeing that people in their team go out of their way to help each other. The listing also highlighted our innovative benefits and that at least 40% of our senior managers are women.
The accolade summarises a fantastic year for us already, having also been shortlisted for the Recruiter of the Year category in the Women in Finance Awards for our work in gender diversity.
