We couldn't be prouder to have achieved a 2-star accreditation from Best Companies, the UK's workplace survey that sets the standard for workplace engagement.
Best Companies lists Eames Partnership as an 'Outstanding' place to work and sees us recognised among the UK's 100 Best Small Companies to Work For and London's Best 30 Small Companies to Work For.
When the pandemic took hold in March 2020 in the UK, and the first national lockdown was imposed, we had to react quickly to ensure our employees remained safe, motivated, and happy, but also to maintain business continuity under circumstances unlike any seen before.
We leaned on our values and focused on our people – prioritising staff wellbeing, introducing home working, ensuring clarity of communication, and maintaining connections between teams.
Employees characterised widespread faith in the focus on staff wellbeing and cultural connectivity. The introduction of flexible working hours, coupled with remote working, has afforded employees different ways of working. Most importantly, it has provided balance so that they can juggle all their jobs – parent, house cleaner, teacher, cook, dog walker – and the many other roles we stepped into last year.
Feedback from our employees is vital for us to continue to create opportunity as an organisation. The output from this survey will be invaluable for us to understand what we are doing well and where we can improve.
We're delighted our team feel so connected and engaged, especially in a year when we've never been more separated through lockdowns, homeworking and restricted international borders.
We look forward to working with our team to build on the platform we've created, continue to improve, and strive for a 3-star accreditation next year.
