Tusker undertook a company-wide internal survey from Best Companies during November 2016 and unusually for a first-time participant, received an “outstanding” rating.
Having supplied extensive information about a number of the company’s business practices, covering recruitment, training and development, employee engagement, environmental and working policies, as well as pay and benefits and employee satisfaction levels, the organisation has received their excellent two stars out of three rating, usually only achieved by returning companies.
David Hosking, CEO, said: “We know Tusker is a great place to work, but to have it confirmed by such a prestigious organisation on the basis of not only the information we have provided, but also by our employees following their surveys, really confirms it. We’re thrilled with the result.”
During November, each employee was sent an online questionnaire which covered every aspect of their working lives at Tusker, from how motivated they found their line manager and how good communications are, to how valuable they feel to the organisation and whether they believe they get a fair deal in terms of pay and benefits.
With an average response rate of 50%, it was testament to the commitment of Tusker’s staff that 98% responded, and this ensured that the results were really very representative of the organisation.
Hosking continued: “The employee engagement survey was primarily to benchmark the organisation against others of a similar size and structure, and to highlight what we’re doing well and where we can improve. We’re delighted with the result.
“Being placed in the top 150 organisations in the UK as part of the Sunday Times Top Places to Work, is an amazing achievement for us as an organisation and is testament to the ethos of our organisation.”
He concluded: “We’re all focussed on the future and we’ll certainly be striving for top-100 next time.”
