The Entertainer has ranked 49th in the Sunday Times Best 100 Mid Companies 2019 to work for following the Best Companies Employee Engagement Questionnaire that took place towards the end of last year.
The survey, which reviews eight engagement factors including how employees feel about their personal growth, team, wellbeing and the company in general generates a BCI (Best Company Index) score for companies before placing them in the top 50 best mid companies to work for.
In 2018, The Entertainer ranked at 69th but this year has climbed 20 places. Reasons for this include the company’s involvement in charitable activities such as Payroll Giving, the access that employees have to the board of directors and training modules that link to pay increases.
Other perks of working at The Entertainer include a competitive holiday allowance, strong maternity leave offering, and designated social space called ‘The Lunchbox’ where staff can relax and enjoy lunch together. In addition, the company has extended stress and resilience training to managers at Head Office to help build awareness and give managers more capacity to deal with emotional illness and mental health issues.
Gary Grant, founder and managing director of The Entertainer, comments: “It’s hugely important for us that our employees enjoy working for The Entertainer which is why we continually review how we can improve their experience by responding to feedback and introducing new initiatives where possible. We pride ourselves on being a company that encourages employees to explore their potential with the support they need and couldn’t be happier to see the increase in our BCI score which only goes to show how happy our employees are.”
