What is Best Employers Eastern Region 2021?


22 April 2021

Birketts is delighted to be partnering with Pure, eras Ltd and Archant on the 2021 Best Employers Eastern Region employee survey.

Best Employers Eastern Region 2021 is a biennial employee survey measures employee engagement, company culture and values. It’s easy for employees to complete online and because it is 100% confidential it encourages open and honest answers.

You decide the number of questions. You can run an in-depth survey or a pulse survey without losing the opportunity to benchmark your engagement scores against other organisations in the region.

What is different this year?

With the recent challenges, Best Employers has evolved so we are able to provide our region’s organisations with a relevant engagement programme for the year ahead. In the programme you will have access to:

  • An employee engagement survey bespoke to your organisation.
  • Benchmark data on your culture and values against organisations across the East of England.
    • A series of leadership webinars on employee engagement themes including:
    • Engaging and leading hybrid teams
    • Developing resilience within the workplace
    • Fostering a culture of innovation and curiosity
    • Recruiting and onboarding effectively in 2021
  • Best Employer accreditations and awards for high performing companies.

Support for organisations looking to further develop their culture and build a more engaged workforce.

Who can participate?

The survey is open to organisations from all sectors across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk.

Why should we get involved?

The survey gives your organisation the opportunity to actively evolve workplace culture, increase engagement and monitor employee satisfaction against your own previous survey results and the results of other businesses in the region.

What will my organisation get?

Each organisation receives a tailored report summarising the findings of the survey and an action plan with any opportunities for further development. Participating businesses also have the unique benefit of not only accessing valuable data on their own organisation, but can also benchmark their scores against other organisations in the region.

Participating organisations become part of a growing network of Best Employers which shares the latest thinking on employee engagement.

Due to circumstances we were decided it was appropriate to postpone Best Employers 2019. In 2018, 140 organisations participated, more than 15,000 individuals completed the survey, eight organisation's won awards and 40 organisation's achieved accreditation.

Can we win anything?

All participants are automatically entered for a series of prestigious awards, presented at a high-profile event. The winners are selected based on the employee feedback from the survey – so staff effectively vote for their organisation to win by sharing their experiences of what it is really like to work there.

A panel of external advisers has been appointed to endorse platinum, gold and silver kitemark accreditations for organisations who submit further evidence in conjunction with the results of the employee engagement survey.

As well as being celebrated at the awards events, the Best Employers Eastern Region winners and accredited organisations will be showcased on the Best Employers portal.
