Saffery Champness certified as one of the UK’s Top Employers 2017

15 Feb 2017

Saffery Champness is proud to announce that it has been officially certified by the Top Employers Institute for its exceptional employee offerings. Saffery Champness is one of only two organisations to have achieved the Top Employers Certification for 14 consecutive years.

The annual international research, undertaken by the Top Employers Institute, recognises leading employers around the world: those that provide excellent employee conditions, nurture and develop talent throughout all levels of the organisation, and which strive to continuously optimise employment practices.

The Top Employers Institute globally certifies excellence in the conditions that employers create for their people. It has just announced the results of this year’s research into the employee conditions of organisations in the UK.

Crucial to the Top Employers Certification is the completion of a stringent research process, and meeting the required standard in order to achieve the Certification.

To further reinforce the validity of the process, all answers are independently audited, meaning this research has verified Saffery Champness’ outstanding employee conditions and earned them a coveted spot among a select group of certified organisations.

The Top Employers Institute assessed Saffery Champness’ employee offerings on the following criteria:

  • Talent Strategy
  • Workforce Planning
  • On-boarding
  • Learning & Development
  • Performance Management
  • Leadership Development
  • Career & Succession Management
  • Compensation & Benefits
  • Culture

James Gooding, UK Country Manager for the Top Employers Institute, commented:

“Optimal employee conditions ensure that people can develop themselves personally and professionally. Our comprehensive research concluded that Saffery Champness provides an outstanding employment environment and offers a wide range of creative initiatives, from secondary benefits and working conditions, to performance-management programmes that are well thought out and truly aligned with the culture of their company.”

Rob Elliott, Managing Partner at Saffery Champness, commented:

“As an organisation, we recognise that we can only be as good as the people we employ and so we strive to be the employer of choice for those who work in our chosen sectors. We are committed to continually reviewing our employee training and development programmes, and engaging with our employees at every opportunity. I am very pleased that we have received our fourteenth consecutive certification as one of Britain’s Top Employers, which is testament to our ongoing efforts.”
