Faber Maunsell makes top 50
Faber Maunsell has been placed in the Financial Times 50 Best UK Workplaces 2007. “We have been associated with ‘Best Company to Work for’ initiatives since 2001 and have received eight FT or Sunday Times awards since then” says Faber Maunsell Chief Executive, Ken Dalton.
“As we have featured in this type of initiative for seven years, this ‘Financial Times 50 Best Workplaces’ Award displays our consistency as a good employer – but we are always seeking to improve further.
“We have certainly worked hard to develop a forward-thinking management philosophy that encourages individuals to realise their own potential and take a personal stake in the company’s future. Our success in these awards and our own staff surveys over the last nine years have shown that our people are proud to be working for Faber Maunsell.”
The Great Place to Work Institute UK believes that to find the best places to work in the UK, you have to ask the staff, so that is what they did. Employee questionnaires were sent to a random sample of 400 Faber Maunsell staff. The results formed a vital part of the extensive research carried out to identify the UK’s 50 Best Workplaces. Any organisation with more than 50 employees, whether publicly quoted, private, non-profit or government agency, was eligible to take part in the survey, which also included detailed questioning of the organisations themselves on HR policies, workplace practices, philosophy and company culture.
