Borders College is ranked among the UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing (2022) by Great Place to Work®, the global authority on workplace culture.
To determine the UK's Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing list, Great Place to Work’s culture experts analysed thousands of employee surveys, assessing people’s holistic experiences of wellbeing at work by asking employees to comment on how their company supports their:
- Work-life balance
- Sense of fulfilment
- Job satisfaction
- Psychological safety
- Financial security
Evaluations also included an assessment of how well the organisation was able to deliver consistency of their employee experience across all departments and seniority levels.
“Being better for people is better for business, especially in tough times,” explained Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work® UK.
“When employees feel genuinely cared for, their loyalty, engagement and productivity improve. Happier people also become brand advocates for the business and will often go the extra mile to provide a positive experience for their clients and customers. We’re delighted to launch our first-ever UK's Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing list in 2022, shining a light on the 250 companies who have succeeded in ensuring staff experience high levels of wellbeing across the organisation. Hopefully this recognition and acknowledgement will inspire more workplaces to do the same in years to come.”
Borders College Principal and CEO Angela Cox commented:
“I am delighted that this award recognises the person-centred approach we take in our leadership approach at Borders College. More than ever before, employers need to recognise that employees require more than a good salary from their employer. I am proud that our culture reflects this.”
Head of HR at Borders College Debbie Kerr added:
“We work hard through our generous terms and conditions, our leadership approach which focuses on the individual, our management structures and our Wellbeing Group, which is made up of staff volunteers, to ensure that we are doing everything we can to respond to the wellbeing needs of our staff. We are extremely proud that we have been ranked within the top 250 organisations within the UK and within the 63 large organisations for Best Workplaces for Wellbeing.“
