Great employers engaging the best people

We would love to say that we are planning to press on as usual, but in these very unusual and unsettling times, we know that not everyone will be able to deliver their employee survey as planned.  Instead, we have come up with a new plan that is designed to support our Best Employer community and provide some valuable free tools during this period of uncertainty.

Best Employers is moving to 2021.

The Best Employer team is already planning the new programme of events and survey to follow a similar pattern to what was originally planned for 2020.

For some organisations, conducting an employee survey will be extremely valuable over the next few months. Eras ltd has very kindly offered to support you through this crisis by making the survey completely free this year to our Best Employer community.

If you have registered to take part in 2020 and would still like the feedback from your employees, then you can log onto the Best Employer portal and deliver your survey for free. You will be able to measure your data compared to previous years and will have access to the full report. However, the accreditations and awards will not be based on this data and all we ask in return is that you take part in 2021.

In addition, your organisation can benchmark itself within the region, gain advice and support to develop engagement and for those in the top quartile, apply for Best Employers accreditation and awards.

Best Employers is a platform to develop and showcase the Eastern Region’s fantastic employers, helping to attract and retain talent and put the region on the map as a great place to live, work and do business.
