Beckett Investment Management took home a top prize at the Best Employers Eastern Region awards held on October 6th. The company received the Customer Focus award for small companies which recognises the way it has motivated employees to go the extra mile for their customers.
“This award shows how staff engagement can bring about real improvements to service delivery,” said Ian White, Managing Director at Beckett’s. “We have always tried to create a culture of development in which leadership and training enable our people to thrive. It’s a key differential for all companies but it’s especially important for organisations like ours who deliver professional services.”
The Best Employers Eastern Region initiative was created by eras ltd and Pure Resourcing Solutions to celebrate the region’s best employers and supports organisations across Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire to create inspiring, innovative and engaging places to work.
Margaret Burnside, Director of People Development at eras ltd, said: “The winners of these awards have been selected based on the feedback from their own employees. Their staff have effectively voted for their organisation to win by sharing their experiences of what it’s really like to work there.”
The award follows Beckett’s accolade as Best Small Employer in Suffolk which also recognised the link between employee engagement and organisational performance.
Lynn Walters, co-founder and director at Pure, said; “All the organisations involved have the shared aim of improving business performance by developing exceptional employee engagement strategies and creating fantastic workplace cultures. Those taking away awards will be in a stronger position to attract, recruit and retain talent for many years to come.”
