Having once again been named among 2023’s Best Companies to Work For – climbing to an impressive #32 overall – UK Microsoft powerhouse Transparity has now been rewarded with Best Companies’ prestigious and much sought after 3-star employee engagement accreditation for 2024.
Recognised as the UK’s de facto workplace engagement benchmark, Best Companies describes 3-star status as its highest level of acknowledgement ‘representing organisations that truly excel’ and deliver ‘world class levels of workplace engagement’ – and having achieved the award, Transparity Chief People & Culture Officer, Neil Tune, is especially proud and delighted.
‘Receiving official recognition and industry awards is always nice of course’, he comments. ‘But based, as it is, directly on the confidential, anonymous, personal feedback of our employees, this accolade is particularly special and so really does mean a tremendous amount more than most.
‘That was one of our prime motivations for working with Best Companies and its renowned employee engagement model. It also marks out this employee-backed endorsement as a huge feather in Transparity’s cap. It is a massive affirmation of both what we’re trying to do and how we’re trying to do it. There’s also no greater testament to the amazing people working across every facet of our organisation.’
Transparity CEO, Paul Bolt, wholeheartedly agrees, describing Best Companies’ latest rubber stamp as a major endorsement for the company’s people driven, Winning from Anywhere® philosophy.
‘We are collectively focused as a leadership team to ensure that all our people are heard, valued, recognised, and most of all trusted. Trusted every day to do their best work, learn, and develop. So it’s great, in turn, for the organisation to be recognised by those people in this way.’
The company isn’t done yet though, he insists.
‘While this is a big moment and an important milestone on our journey, it only heightens our determination to keep improving, keep redefining boundaries, and keep striving to be the kind of business people don’t just like working for, but love working for.’
Tune concurs, concluding: ‘It’s a compelling dynamic. An award recognising employee engagement that comes straight from our employees themselves.
‘Our people – the incredible individuals who make us who we are – enabled this recognition, and it’s our unending mission to build on that acknowledgement by continuing to provide outstanding workplace experiences. We’re already looking forward to seeing where we’ll place in the 2024 Best Companies listings.’
The announcement of Transparity’s increase from two- to three-star status follows November’s Best Companies 2023 awards ceremony in which Transparity were recognised as being among ‘those organisations most dedicated to ‘Making the World a Better Workplace’’, climbing to 32nd overall in the mid-sized category and 16th in UK tech.
