SG World Awarded One to Watch in UK Wide Best Companies to Work for
SG World has been recognised for its continued investment in employee satisfaction in the 2016 Best Companies ‘b-heard’ survey; the UK’s biggest employment engagement survey. In its first year of taking part in the scheme, the company picked up an award in the ‘One to Watch’ category by demonstrating “good levels of engagement” across its workforce.
Best Companies, which is most widely known for researching the Sunday Times ‘Best companies to Work for’ lists, surveys in excess of 1.5 million employee opinions across thousands of organisations. The survey assesses an organisation’s performance in all areas of the workplace, especially its commitment to its employees.
SG World already has an enviable record when it comes to staff retention, over twenty percent of SG World employees have over twenty years of service under their belts and the company has cracked a thousand year milestone by achieving a combined 1242 years total service. With this firm foundation to build on, the b-heard survey is viewed as the first step in being recognised as one of the UK’s top 100 Best Companies to Work For.
Over the last year SG World has made a number of investments to improve employee satisfaction including company days, introduction of personal development plans and an ambitious office refurbishment including new recreational areas and training facilities.

Mark Haase, SG World CEO explained:
“Our success and growth as a company is all down to our staff. Our future depends upon attracting, developing and retaining a talented, committed workforce. The “One to Watch” accreditation is a great base line for us to work with as we continue to create an environment that makes our employees feel motivated and engaged.”
