In a special announcement event earlier today, Understanding Recruitment’s ranking on three of the much-coveted league tables for the 2022 ‘Best Companies to Work For’ in ‘Small’, ‘Recruitment’ and ‘East of England’ company categories, was revealed.

Best Companies is a leading UK-based employee engagement specialist, delivering data and insights to help positive change within workplaces.

Today, Best Companies revealed the 2022 Q1 ‘Best Companies to Work For’ regional, sectoral, and national league tables in a virtual event attended by representatives from the hundreds of participating companies, as well as holding a series of discussions around the current state of the workplace.

Hosted by TV and sports presenter, Dan Walker, the event announced the Q1 ranking highlighting companies scoring high for employee engagement (across categories including leadership, personal growth, wellbeing, and more), as voted anonymously by staff. Feedback is then used to propel organisation’s forward and ensure they unlock their full potential.

Understanding Recruitment ranked on all three Best Companies league tables the company qualified for, with the following positions (for Q1):

Best Small Companies to Work For In The UK – #6 

Best Recruitment Companies to Work For #7

Best Companies to Work for - East of England#6

The company also earned an overall 3-star accreditation, representing the highest standard workplace engagement (awarded to organisations with a BCI score of 738 or higher) and ‘world-class’ levels of workplace engagement.

"Ranking in all three categories is testament to the industry-leading workplace and practices we are working towards building every day here."

Speaking on the news, Chris Jackson, Founding Director of Understanding Recruitment, commented: “An engaged team is something to be celebrated, and we are thrilled to see Understanding Recruitment further establish itself as a leader in tech recruitment and an employer of choice with this announcement. Ranking in all three categories is testament to the industry-leading workplace and practices we are working towards building every day here.

Over the past two years, I’ve seen outstanding resilience and commitment to truly being the best we can be and living up to our company values despite challenging circumstances, which has resulted in earning a ‘world-class’ accreditation and these fantastic rankings.

The future looks incredibly bright for us and our tech partners, and I know we’re only going to step things up in the year ahead as we expand even more. Well done everyone – we couldn’t have done this without you.”
