Barchester was recently accredited as one of the best companies to work for in the UK by the Best Companies b-Heard Survey. Recognised as a leading employer in five regions throughout the UK, South West, South East (London Big), North East, Midlands, and East of England, Barchester was accredited with 1 star, and were the only care provider in the UK to do so.

Employees at different levels throughout Barchester were asked to complete the Best Companies b-Heard Survey anonymously, and had to score 70 statements on a 7 point scale from ‘Strongly Disagree’ to ‘Strongly Agree’. The results were then calculated against the 8 Factors of Workplace Engagement, and Barchester Healthcare ranked as one of the best in 5 of the 10 regions throughout the UK.

An accreditation from Best Companies sends a powerful message that people in the organisation feel valued and motivated. Barchester were given a 1 Star accreditation from Best Companies, which recognises a significant achievement from an organisation taking workplace engagement seriously, with ‘very good’ levels of workplace engagement.

Pete Calveley, CEO of Barchester Healthcare commented: “I am delighted that Barchester Healthcare has been accredited as one of the best companies to work for in the UK by Best Companies. Our wonderful teams at Barchester are motivated, attentive and committed to excellent care and customer service. We’re so pleased that people enjoy working for us, and we do our best to recognise the outstanding efforts of all our people every day because they deserve it.”

Genevieve Glover, HR Director added “As a company, we really do value all 15,000 of our employees, and recognise and reward them for a job well done through our Celebrating Success programme. This includes; sharing the quality of care and financial success of the business through the only profit share scheme in the care sector, our Employee of the Month scheme and recognising excellence in care at our annual Barchester Care Awards event. We also provide training and continual professional development, which often leads to career progression within the business. It truly is a team effort here at Barchester.”
