We want to help make the world a better workplace. It’s something we really care about. We care because we truly believe that people who are fully engaged at work feel happier and more secure, which makes them more productive. To achieve this, we live by our four key principles Care, Humility, Responsibility and Discipline.
Best Companies is the brainchild of our founder and CEO Jonathan Austin. He was inspired by a Servant Leadership conference in the USA in 2000. They talked about how they attributed their over-achievement as a business to the level of engagement they had within their workforce. Our lists and accreditations are now recognised as the standard in workplace engagement, with specific categories for small organisations, medium-sized organisations, large organisations and not-for-profit organisations and one dedicated to housing associations. Today we work with some of the world’s best-known organisations measuring, improving and recognising workplace engagement.
