24 Apr Best Companies 2017
Each year we enter the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to work for survey. With 256 members of staff we fall into the mid sized category. 100s of companies ask their own members of staff to score the company in a number of brackets.
Leadership: How employees feel about the head of the company and its senior managers
Wellbeing: How staff feel about the stress, pressure and the balance between their work and home duties
Giving something back: How much companies are thought by their staff to put back into society generally and the local community
Personal growth: To what extent staff feel they are stretched and challenged by their job
My manager: How staff feel towards their immediate boss and day-to-day managers
My company: Feelings about the company people work for as opposed to the people they work with
My team: How staff feel about their immediate colleagues
Fair deal: How happy the workforce is with their pay and benefits
This year is our second year in the Mid Size Companies category. Last year we managed an amazing 13th place however this year we managed to move up the rankings and have placed 11th achieving 3 star accreditation. This is the second consecutive year Robinwood has achieved 3 stars and the third time overall.
Staff love working for this organisation, an 85% positive score on this measure, ranking it 4th among mid size companies, and consider that it is run on strong values with an 88% positive score in this category ranking 6th. What makes this operation unbeatable, employees say, is the fairness of pay compared with similar jobs in equivalent organisations, with an 84% positive score we ranked 1st in this category!
