Post Covid-19 Business Evaluation

 

In all different sectors of the workforce, COVID-19 has led to many businesses re-evaluating the way they operate, resulting in technical innovation and in some cases enabling organisations outside of the tech industry to transform into tech-based companies. This especially is reflected in this year’s list of Best Workplaces™ in Tech, which includes a record 98 companies recognised.

Automation Consultants has been ranked 23rd in the Small size category (20-50 employees) and is among 98 UK-based organisations recognised as a Best Workplace™ in Tech by Great Place to Work® UK. Automation Consultants position on this prestigious list is driven by their annual employee engagement survey which measured the extent to which everyone across the organisation reported a consistently great workplace experience, considering factors such as physical and mental wellbeing, fairness, camaraderie, and trust in their leadership. As an organisation, Automation Consultants continue to be committed to ensuring ALL their employees feel valued and supported every day.

One employee at Automation Consultants said: “I believe the culture and the small nature of the company are what makes it a great place to work – it’s more of a family feel even as we grow, there is so much collaboration and engagement across all departments both inside and outside of work that it makes you really value your colleagues and enjoy the thought of actually going in to work. Even throughout the pandemic, we’ve had a strong bond across all departments and if anything, the culture has improved even more because of it, we make sure to make time to socialise remotely inside and outside of work still (we’re talking amazing virtual worlds, bake-a-longs, comedians and escape rooms at Christmas to group quizzes, bingo and evening drinks via zoom). In addition, we also get fruit boxes delivered to each of us and access to wellness sessions each week.”

Francis Miers, Director at Automation Consultants: “I am delighted that Automation Consultants has been recognised as a ‘great place to work’ in tech. We spend a quarter of our life at work and if, without losing focus on the goals of our work, that can be made as fulfilling and satisfying as possible, it is good for our staff and good for our company – a real win-win. I would like to thank all our staff, and especially those in leadership roles, for creating and maintaining the culture that has been recognised in this award.”
