Eames Group has received a three-star accreditation from Best Companies, highlighting us as a world-class place to work. The three-star accreditation is the highest standard of workplace engagement you can receive.
We prioritised employee well-being and fostered a culture of inclusion, purpose, expertise and empathy. In return, our employees spoke in volume in our annual employee engagement survey. Over 100 individuals from #TeamEames from across the globe shared their views on life at Eames, and we’re thrilled to learn employee engagement is at its highest in our 20-year history.
From listening to feedback from our employees, we sought to improve in areas that supported employees' lives at work, and at home and saw a marked 6% improvement in ‘workplace wellbeing’ and ‘giving something back’ since we completed the survey in 2021
Our agile working environment enables our team to prioritise what’s important to them, regardless of their job style or where they work.
Wellness programmes have encouraged employees to seek work-life balance and prioritise their health and wellbeing.
We’ve been able to open up the conversation around mental health and reduce the stigma around asking for help.
Best Companies also recognised our ability to connect our values and goals to our team and ensure that our work has meaning and purpose. Opportunity Makers serves to guide every member of #TeamEames to helping one another achieve beyond our expectations, pushing and supporting each other to get the best out of our work and our lives. 100% of our team said their work is an important part of their life.
Speaking of our ranking as a 'world-class' employer, Chief People Officer Ruth Foster shared:
“True employee wellbeing goes beyond surface-level perks. We strive to foster a workplace that celebrates diversity, belonging, trust and purpose. For Opportunity to happen, we must stay true to our values, and keep focused on our people.
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.
I am grateful for our teams who have led our wellbeing, diversity, inclusion and charity initiatives this year. I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved together.
A happy and healthy team is a successful team, and I am delighted with our ‘world-class’ recognition from Best Companies.”
Founder & CEO, Matthew Eames shares:
“As employers look to the future and strive to put the disruptions of the last two years behind them, successful organisations are benefiting from offering employee experiences stronger than pre-pandemic times.
Our 3-star ranking is an endorsement of the people-first culture we’ve fostered. We know that employees who feel their work has meaning are more invested in our purpose and collective success.
Being an Opportunity Maker is about helping one another achieve beyond our expectations, pushing and supporting each other to get the best out of our work and our lives. I love coming to work every day knowing we’re all in this together.
Congratulations on this recognition, #TeamEames. I am incredibly proud.”
