Vantage staff report highest level of workplace engagement
All Vantage staff were recently invited to take part in the Best Companies bHeard survey, the results of which provide an industry standard measure of employee engagement. We are incredibly proud to announce that, based on this staff feedback, Vantage has been named as a 3 Star, World Class company, the highest possible standard of recognition.
The Best Companies b-Heard is a confidential survey that invites employees to score core statements about their wellbeing, pay and benefits, personal growth, their team, the leadership and much more. Jonathan Austin, Founder and CEO of Best Companies, said “Vantage Academy Trust should be very proud of their achievement, demonstrating world class levels of engagement. This accreditation is recognition of all they have done to be a best company to work for, and always putting their people first.”
Our CEO, Simon Bramwell, said of the achievement: “It is hugely rewarding to be awarded a World Class accreditation by Best Companies on our very first year of entry. We consider this achievement to be a recognition of the fantastic work that our staff deliver and even more deserved as they have battled through these most difficult circumstances that we have faced over the last year of COVID-19, where colleagues have continued to work on the frontline since day one, for the benefit of the pupils we serve.
We always knew our staff were “World Class” and they have now created an organisation that reflects that faith. Our staff and leaders embody our trust values and deliver on the promise we make to enhance opportunities for local children – they make Vantage such an incredible place to work and it is to them that this award belongs.”
On 22nd May 2021, Best Companies will announce which of these World Class companies will enter the Times Top 100 Best Companies to work for, watch this space! You can find out more about the Best Companies lists below:
