Join us for the launch of Best Employers Eastern Region 2018
Best Employers Eastern Region returns for 2018 and we’re encouraging organisations across the region to join us at the launch event on 27 February.
Since it was first founded by Pure and psychometrics experts eras ltd in 2012, Best Employers Eastern Region has given organisations the opportunity to actively evolve workplace culture as well as the chance to be crowned one of the region’s best employers. It begins with a free employee engagement survey which gives employees a confidential way to share their views. Employers gain unique, real-time data on how employees are feeling, whilst staff are given a voice and the opportunity to effectively vote for their organisation to win an award by sharing what it is really like to work there.
The 2018 launch event will reveal the new and enhanced features of the employee survey, which is now even simpler to use and easier to customise as an in-depth or pulse style survey. Once complete, each organisation receives a tailored report summarising the culture, values and leadership style, and a summary action plan on how to improve.
Lynn Walters, Executive Director at Pure, said: “People are the most precious business resource and enabling them to be heard will help organisations be more profitable, lead more effectively, create brand loyalty, close more deals and do better work. The free Best Employers survey measures employee engagement, company culture and values, capturing the information needed to enhance and maintain employer brand. It is also the only survey of its kind which allows employers in Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire to benchmark themselves against other businesses in the region.”
This year, Best Employers Eastern Region is sponsored by Archant and Birketts, and there are even more opportunities to showcase the region’s most inspiring employers. As well as automatically being entered for prestigious Best Employers Awards, organisations with the highest engagement scores will be invited to submit further evidence to be considered for Platinum or Gold accreditation which will be endorsed by a panel of expert advisors. Both the Best Employers award winners and Platinum and Gold accredited organisations, will be showcased on a new Best Employers Eastern Region portal.
Lynn added: “As the leading professional recruiter in the Eastern region, our aim is to help organisations create workplaces that are stimulating, motivating and bring out the best in their people. This year, the award-winning and accredited employers will have the opportunity to improve retention and recruitment, developing their employer brand and creating pride amongst their employees whilst promoting the organisation and region as a great place to work.”
The Best Employers Eastern Region 2018 launch event will take place in Newmarket on 27 February. Guest speakers will discuss the creation of engaging workplaces, including Ian Watson, Chief Executive of Start-rite Shoes, Ian White, Chief Executive of Beckett Investment Management Group, and Tracey Locke, HR Director EMEA at JLL.
