Great Places to Work are All Round Winners

“Best Workplaces” are sought after by the most talented employees. They are valued more highly by investors, customers, governance and partners. They financially outperform their competitors by 2-3% per year [1]. When the impact on engagement, talent acquisition and retention, and organisational performance is clearly demonstrable, the journey to become an Employer of Choice has now become a much easier business case for HR leaders to make and for the rest of the leadership team to back.
