Investment Week is pleased to be honouring the top companies to work for in the investment sector this year with a new set of awards.
In a world where products and services are often difficult to differentiate, companies are recognising that one of the greatest business game changers is the quality and engagement of their staff. Employees who are engaged, motivated and enjoy their work will provide a better service, not only for their employer but also their customers.
Against this backdrop, Investment Week has partnered with workplace engagement survey specialist Best Companies Group (BCG) to launch the Best Companies To Work For In Investment Awards 2018.
The awards will be open to firms in the following areas: asset management, wealth management, DFM, private client stockbroker, or family office. Companies must be a publicly or privately-held business and must have been in operation for a minimum of one year.
Our awards process will include two surveys to gather detailed data about each participating company.
Part I will be an Employer Benefits & Policies Questionnaire. The employer completes an online survey, detailing company policies, practices, benefits and demographics.
Then, Part II will be the Employee Engagement & Satisfaction Survey. Employees complete a survey of in-depth statements using a scale of five points ranging from "Agree Strongly" to "Disagree Strongly." The survey also includes seven demographic and two open-ended questions. It can be given online or by paper, if a full company employee email list is not available.
Registration and participation in the awards is free of charge to all entrants and the final deadline for registration is Friday 9 March.
Investment Week will announce the top ranked investment firms to work for at our Fund Manager of the Year Awards in July. The winners will also be recognised in a special section of the magazine.
