Thanks to analysis of anonymous employee feedback against data from other Life Sciences companies
A Top Workplaces Award is something that many businesses strive for, but not every business achieves. Here at Ashfield Engage in the US, we have always prided ourselves on keeping close to the wellbeing of our people, be it through engagement and culture initiatives or through top-notch leadership. We always endeavor to deliver on our values, be transparent with our employees and aim to be a top innovator. After years of growth and focus on employee development, our investment in our people and our culture has translated into employee-driven recognition.
In late 2020, at a time when one would think not best fit to gather employee feedback, we decided to take on that challenge and participated in the Energage survey. Energage is known as the nation’s most credible employer recognition program and provides scoring insights based on scores from comparable companies.
Through this survey, we gathered feedback from our +1,100 employees to measure our organization on topics such as management, innovation, and culture. As a result, we were recognized as a 2021 Top Workplace in the US. Of all categories, we earned 11 of 12 possible culture badges within that survey category and our rankings align against other Life Sciences organizations of similar size and services.
Three of the badges happened to be in the top 5% of other companies in the space including Supportive Managers, Strong Values, and Cross-Team Collaboration. These, amongst the other badges achieved (Meaningful Work, Trusted Leader, and Company Direction to name a few), truly exemplify our dedication to ensuring that our people feel fulfilled when they come to work each day (even if we were working from home at that time). Compared to other companies in the same space, we even led the way on our overall rating. This illustrates that our investment in our people and their feedback not only matters, but is put to action.
We are incredibly proud that even in the midst of a global pandemic, our people felt aligned with, and overwhelmingly positive about the current and future state of our organization. To earn this recognition is exciting and indicative of the commitment we all feel. Our purpose is strong, and our values drive us towards it every day.
