Market-leading travel insurance provider to the over 50s, Staysure, has been awarded a Best Companies accreditation for its employee engagement.
The business achieved ‘One to Watch’ recognition in its first year of taking part in the scheme following a company-wide ‘b-heard’ survey of its employees. The survey, which took place in 2015, provides a Best Companies Index (BCI) score which was used to award the accreditation.
The grading is also used to calculate the company’s potential standing in the annual Sunday Times Best Companies to Work for list.
Chris Rolland, CEO of Staysure, commented: “This is a fantastic result in our first year. To be recognised at this level when benchmarked against the vast number of companies that apply is a real achievement to be proud of.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who took the time to complete the survey.”
Staysure employs over 500 people across its sites and has created hundreds of new jobs across the Coventry area in the past year.
Jonathan Austin, CEO and founder of Best Companies said: “I would like to congratulate Staysure on their outstanding achievement. Our role at Best Companies is to support and encourage organisations to be great workplaces for their employees.
“An engaged workforce means happier, healthier, more productive and committed employees, which is clearly good news for all. We are delighted to recognise Staysure by awarding the company ‘One to Watch’ status in our accreditation standard.”
The Best Companies survey has been used for over a decade to give businesses a view of how engaged their employees are. The survey is widely acknowledged as the most extensive research into employee engagement carried out in the UK with over 1,000 businesses and organisations taking part.
The fantastic result was accompanied by a personalised video message for Staysure from Best Companies, which you can watch here.
Staysure will be rejoicing its success on National Best Companies Day, Friday 26 February, with a range of celebrations across the company.
