Access, the software and solutions provider, has received recognition as one of the top UK employers in The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For list, which was published yesterday.
The research was carried out by Best Companies, which produces the prestigious list in conjunction with The Sunday Times. Access listed 100th in the list which demonstrates high levels of employee engagement. Access received the top 100 award at a celebration dinner held on Thursday 27th February 2014.
The Best Companies survey of Access employees revealed that 84 per cent of staff felt they made a valuable contribution to business success. A total of 78 per cent felt proud to be part of the organisation. Other strengths included 73 per cent of staff stating that there is a great work family feel.
This marks a return to the Best Companies for Access, who previously listed 87th in 2011
Chris Bayne, CEO for Access, said: "In the past couple of years we’ve grown at an incredible rate, both organically and through acquisition. We now have over 600 employees across the UK, and continue to grow our product portfolio. Throughout this growth we’ve continued to focus on our employees, I’ve always believed that people are core to our success.
"Gaining our position on the top 100 companies list demonstrates that throughout our ongoing growth we are still an employer of choice. I’m absolutely delighted. Now we’re busy analysing the feedback so we can ensure we maintain those areas where we’re doing things right and also formulate plans to address the areas where we need to improve. We’ll be looking to work with our staff every step of the way."
The listings are part of the largest, most comprehensive survey of employee opinion. This year a quarter of a million employees participated. The questions address eight workplace engagement factors looking at leadership, my manager, personal growth, wellbeing, my team, giving something back, my company, and fair deal. The results of the survey contributed to 100 per cent of Access’ overall ranking.
