UK – PBA has ranked among the best companies to work for in Scotland, the Midlands, the South West and the South East.
The regional lists were based on the results of the 2018 b-Heard survey, which asked more than 500,000 employees across 769 organisations in the UK how they felt at work.
Of the top 75 companies to work in the South West, PBA was ranked 28th and of the top 50 companies to work for in Scotland, PBA was placed 22nd.
Of the top 75 best companies to work for in the Midlands and the South East, PBA was ranked 70th and 61st respectively.
The b-Heard survey, conducted by workplace engagement specialists Best Companies, asked people how they feel about eight aspects of their working lives to determine a Best Companies Index (BCI) score for each organisation – the company’s unique measure of workplace engagement.
Since 2001, b-Heard has celebrated the very best in workplace engagement with their national 'Best Companies to Work For' lists. The company has now launched regional lists to recognise organisations who have high levels of employee engagement at a local level.
Paul Reilly, PBA Managing Partner, commented:
“Our staff are the heart of our Practice. We push ourselves to be the best employers we can; investing in development and communicating our strategy so that our people feel part of a shared ambition for success. Our regional rankings show that we are committed to our staff but also to the ideal of a regional Practice.
"Being in the communities we serve is important to us. Being close to our clients, our project sites and those that benefit from our work in housing, commercial development and infrastructure means that we are best placed to truly reflect all their needs in our work.”
