Atkins has been named one of The Sunday Times 25 Best Big Companies to Work For 2011, recognised as the definitive survey of workplace engagement and satisfaction in the UK.
Atkins was ranked 23rd in the list of the country’s best big employers following a confidential and independent survey of its UK staff. It is the sixth time in seven years that the company has featured in the rankings.
Sue Cooper, UK HR director at Atkins, commented: “It is a major achievement to have been recognised once again by the Sunday Times, especially given the challenging market that many companies have been facing. Atkins enters these competitions in order to gain a valuable insight into how our people are feeling and our renewed success this year is a reflection of our ongoing efforts to develop as a people business.”
The survey examines companies with more than 5,000 staff in the UK, and measures the key factors which contribute towards creating a great workplace. Using a methodology designed exclusively for the UK, the survey identifies best practice and ranks companies chiefly according to their performance in eight key categories, including leadership, wellbeing and personal growth.
