“We are honoured to have been recognised as a No.1 organisation by Best Companies™, in three significant areas. A huge thank you to our wonderful team who work extremely hard and who care deeply about driving positive, meaningful change and continuing to build our special culture.” 

FSP was also proudly awarded a 3-star ‘World Class’ accreditation from Best Companies™, where we achieved outstanding results from its proprietary b-Heard employee engagement survey – the highest standard of workplace recognition, awarded to organisations that truly excel. The accreditation is based on their unique BCI score generated by an employee engagement survey, on a scale from 0 – 1000. Organisations with a BCI score of 738 or higher are awarded the 3-star accreditation reflecting ‘World Class’ levels of workplace engagement.

Our CEO Simon Grosse was in Manchester for Best Companies™ live in May 2022, where he joined a brilliant panel discussion on ‘Leading with Purpose’.

It is very important to FSP to receive regular, honest feedback from our employees on how they feel about working for us.

We already use our own Pulse 360 tool to capture real-time feedback from our colleagues. This lets them know their opinion really matters and gives us the chance to listen, learn and act on their feedback. The Best Companies™ awards gave us an opportunity to gather a wider view of how our employees feel, and for every anonymous survey completed we donated to two fantastic charities, affiliated to both of our offices. The number of completed surveys had no direct correlation to our overall result. We wanted to understand our employees better and we always look for ways to give back to charity whenever we can. 
 
We donated to New Beginnings Reading - a homeless charity dedicated to the prevention and relief of poverty and financial hardship in the local Berkshire area. Also to Fundació Banc dels Aliments de Barcelona, who through their ‘Grand Collection’ campaign, provide food and supplies to 267,000 people in vulnerable situations throughout Catalonia.
