Eames Group excels in employee engagement, earning 'outstanding' workplace recognition from Best Companies
Eames Group has been recognised as an 'outstanding' workplace in Best Companies' annual employee engagement survey. The results, based on feedback from over 120 #TeamEames members globally, highlight high employee engagement levels across all Eames Group brands, including Eames Consulting, Eames Partnership, ECMS, and within our internal Corporate Services function. Listening to employee feedback, we have implemented initiatives to improve in areas that supported employees' lives at work: We further extended our charitable efforts, supporting causes close to the hearts of our team members, including the MND Association in the UK, Feeding America in New York, CareER in Hong Kong, and MILK in Singapore. The launch of 'Belong@Eames' stands as a testament to our commitment to diversity and inclusion. This initiative, featuring six employee-led communities, aims to foster LGTBQ inclusion, promote female talent, advocate for racial equality, and support working parents through a series of events, content, and impact initiatives. We established partnerships with volunteering-focused organisations such as the Whitechapel Mission in London and various food banks in the US, Singapore, and Hong Kong by our Volunteering Team, exemplifying our commitment to making a positive impact in our local communities. The 'Secrets of Stress' series, led by the Mental Health & Neurodiversity team, aims to open up conversations around mental health and reduce the stigma associated with seeking help.Of the efforts of the Belong@Eames team, one colleague shared, "For me, promoting mental health and neurodiversity within the workplace is as important as standard training to do the job.” Another cited: “My hope for this group is that we celebrate our similarities and our differences. I have loved learning and hearing about my colleagues' experiences, and I want this group to be a safe space and a platform for all of us to learn more about each other so that we can bring out the best versions of ourselves."

Recognition from Best Companies also extends to Eames Group's commitment to creating opportunities for every member of the organisation, as seen in personal development plans and structured learning programs. “I joined Eames because it was a platform which could take me to the next level in my career - I must say it has lived up to every single expectation I had and more", shared one long-serving employee. Notably, Best Companies recognised our focus on well-being and balance. Wellness programs encourage a healthy work-life balance, including an annual wellness week, providing each employee with a paid day of leave to focus on well-being. In the words of our team: “It’s not all about work here – Eames takes care of you and ensures your physical and mental well-being through a variety of initiatives."
