The US-based research and management consultancy Great Place to Work Institute Inc, has published the 2010 UK's Best Workplaces report. As well as featuring the UK and European Best Workplaces rankings, the publication covers the findings of what has become the largest study of workplace excellence and people management practices in Europe.
The findings are based on the workplace experience of over 1.1 million employees from across Europe. Conducted by the Great Place to Work Institute, the initiative forms part of the global Best Workplaces Programme, which researches and recognises leading workplaces in 45 countries around the world, including 18 national initiatives in Europe. Some of the key findings from this year's study are:
- Europe's Best Workplaces grew their revenues by 15% on average, in the midst of the recession.
- Sickness absence in the UK's Best Workplaces was 30% lower than the national average saving those organisations 20,760 Pounds per 100 employees per year.
- Almost 90% of employees in the UK's Best Workplaces believe that management is open and honest in their organisation, against the national average of 55%.
