The Adecco Group UK and Ireland’s brands recognised as UK’s Best Workplaces™

London, 30th April 2020 – The Adecco Group UK&I’s brands: Adecco UK, Spring, Office Angels and Badenoch + Clark were all named by Great Place to Work® on their annual ranking of the UK’s Best Workplaces.

The rankings are: Office Angels 4th (large category), Adecco 8th (large category), Spring 23rd (medium category) and Badenoch + Clark 31st (medium category). It’s very positive to see Office Angels placing in the top 5 and Adecco in the top 10, with both brands having moved up two places compared to last year. The remaining brands have also improved their performance compared to 2019.

This is in recognition of their strong leadership and their creative and effective HR policies that promote a healthy workplace culture th­­rough trust, pride and camaraderie.

The process of determining an organisation’s ranking is rigorous and includes both an employee engagement survey and an audit into the organisation’s HR and leadership practices, engagement initiatives and culture.

Alex Fleming,Country Head of UK & Ireland and President of Staffing & Solutions, the Adecco Group UK&I, commented: “We are proud that four of our brands have once again received UK’s Best Workplaces recognition. Thanks to our hardworking and dedicated employees, we’ve created a standout workplace culture, and this achievement reflects the ongoing commitment our teams provide. An inclusive and engaging environment is critical to any business’ success and enables workforces to continue to grow, develop and thrive.”

The Adecco Group UK&I’s employees are the number one advocates of the Group’s Employee Value Proposition and demonstrate the company values through the great service they provide to clients and candidates. Continuous feedback from employees is vital and the Group continues to make improvements based on this. For example, a review of flexible ways of working was conducted so the Group can now better understand and support the work life balance of its workforce.
