Ƶ has, once again, been named as a leading employer in the Best Companies league – a prestigious workplace recognition scheme.

Ƶ was awarded a place in the top five education and training organisations nationally, and for the eighth consecutive year placed in the top 100 large companies to work for in the UK at the 2023 Best Companies award ceremony.

Best Companies recognises small, mid-size, large and big businesses across different regions and sectors throughout the UK, rating them on important factors such as wellbeing, leadership and fair pay.

Head of People and Development at Ƶ, Rebecca Cooper, said: “We are over the moon to have secured a place in the top 100 large companies to work for in the UK for the eighth consecutive year and to be named one of the top five Education and Training companies.

“Ƶ prioritises staff happiness and engagement, which is one of our strategic aims, and this achievement helps us to measure that. We are even prouder that we have achieved this even though the last few years have been very challenging for the UK as a result of the pandemic and cost of living pressures.

“For us, happy staff results in excellent customer service to our learners who remain at the heart of everything we do.”

Ƶ’s Managing Director Richard Spear added: “We are delighted to be in the top-100 best companies to work for yet again. Staff happiness has been a strategic aim at Ƶ for many years. We feel it is the right thing to focus on and are convinced that the happier and more engaged our team are, the better job they will do for the learners, employers or colleagues that they support.

“We are currently implementing engagement plans based on the data from last year’s survey and are working hard to make sure Ƶ is an even greater place to work.”

Ƶ has been an accredited ‘Outstanding Company to Work For’ with Best Companies for nearly a decade and is dedicated to ensuring it remains a company of choice for people looking for a career in education.

Ƶ was awarded a place in the top five education and training organisations nationally, and for the 8th consecutive year placed in the top 100 large companies to work for in the UK at the 2023 Best Companies award ceremony.
