 About Best Companies 3 Star Awards

Best Companies have been producing the Accreditation standard since 2006 to acknowledge excellence in the workplace. Accreditation is a focus on Workplace Engagement as an integral component of an organisation’s success and growth. Every organisation that goes for Best Companies Accreditation is given a Best Companies Index score (BCI). This score (on a scale of 1 to 1000) is defined from employee’s responses to questions within the Best Companies survey.

For thirteen years Best Companies have been recognising exceptional workplaces across the UK and publishing the results in the prestigious Sunday Times. This is the largest and most comprehensive survey of workplace engagement in the UK. The views of 250,000 employees were gathered from nearly 900 organisations. The survey is a unique insight into the minds of UK employees. It illustrates what’s important to today’s workforce and how the companies featured on the lists recognise the rewards of listening to and caring for their employees.
