On 22 November, PICS announced high positions in three ‘top employer’ listings from Best Companies, the UK’s employee engagement specialists. Compared to organisations from across the UK, PICS is:

  • One of the top 5 Best Companies to work for in the UK’s health and social care sector;
  • In the top 50 of Best Companies to work for in the East Midlands; and
  • One of the Best Large Companies to work for across the UK.

Best Companies rated PICS as an ‘Outstanding Place to Work’ for the second year running in July 2022. Since then, the results have been compared to other UK employers, both within the health and social care sector and more generally.

Best Companies accreditation is a national scheme which measures employee engagement and leadership and compares it with other organisations. The robust data is compiled from an anonymous survey sent to all staff, a review of key policies and contracts, and analysis of the employment offer. Being involved is a learning and improvement opportunity which gives organisations an understanding of what they do well and helps them develop action plans for making improvements.

Alison Rounce, Managing Director of PICS, said:

“This is our second year of being accredited by Best Companies and achieving high placements when compared to other organisations across the UK and within the health and social care sector.

“An engaged workforce is a vital part to our continuing success. This is fantastic recognition of all the efforts we put in to care for the wellbeing, as well as careers, of our colleagues.”
