We’re delighted that Berkeley has secured eighth position in the top 100 'Best Small Companies to Work For 2014’ list.
This is the third consecutive year that we have been recognised for this prestigious award and retained our top tier 3* rating which acknowledges excellence in the workplace. The list, which gauges workplace engagement and satisfaction through a comprehensive employee survey, examines views on company leadership, team dynamics, the strength of an employee’s affiliation to their firm, personal growth prospects, reward and recognition, overall wellbeing and pressure levels at work, and approach to CSR.
More than 400 small and medium enterprises took part so the competition was fierce. We were really pleased to be the only management consultancy featured in the top 10 this year, which we feel highlights just why Berkeley is so different to work both for and with.
We scored highly across all areas, improving on last year’s rankings in nearly all categories. Our core business premise of ‘doing the right thing for our clients’ again featured as a key message and remains an aspect of Berkeley that we feel strongly about. We stand by one of our principles that ‘business decisions should be transparent, free of personal bias and hidden agendas’. This fosters a relaxed yet focused environment that we believe stimulates our people, and encourages them to go the extra mile for our clients. It also means that our attrition rates are low – in fact we have the lowest attrition rates in the top 20 companies surveyed.
“Being ranked in the Top 100 'Best Small Companies to Work For 2014’ for the third time is something we’re really proud of. And we’re even more pleased to be considered one of the Top Ten. This year’s feedback has once again shown us that our core ethos of doing the right thing for our people, our clients and our wider community remains a strong guiding principle for all our people who are themselves the heart of Berkeley. It’s great to be a part of an organisation that celebrates diversity and collaboration, and that has so much fun doing it.” Jonathan Kennedy, People Partner.
