The Great Place to Work’s UK Best Workplaces for 2015 awards was held last night and continues to grow, and I’m very proud to say FinancialForce.com was listed as one of the Top 50 Medium-Sized Businesses to work for in the UK. We have placed in the top rankings for the past three years, which tells me that despite undergoing rapid growth, we are successfully managing to maintain our strong and supporting culture, which is core to how we operate as a business.
Since starting the company in 2009, we have aimed to provide a positive working environment where employees feel their needs and development are taken very seriously. The management is always open to feedback from staff to further learn and adapt our approach to ensure we are doing the very best to support our employees. No matter how fast we grow, maintaining this positive culture for all of our staff remains close to my heart and always will be. People are the lifeblood of any company and our success directly relates to everyone in the team. My hat goes off to all at FinancialForce.com.
The rankings for this prestigious award are comprised of the most widely used employee engagement survey in the world, along with a culture audit. Together these measure the employee voice and experience and evaluate the organization’s culture – the leadership and HR practices that create the employee experience, which is critical for attracting and retaining talent.
I’d like to both congratulate and thank everyone on the FinancialForce.com team for their contribution to help make and keep this company a great place to work!
