Inspire North awarded Best Companies 2* Accreditation, recognising outstanding employee engagement

Best Companies Accreditation LogoWe are delighted to announce that Inspire North has achieved a 2* accreditation award from Best Companies, the recognition programme for workplace engagement. 2* accreditation is the second-highest standard available, awarded to organisations that demonstrate an outstanding commitment to workplace engagement.

Ruth Kettle, CEO of Inspire North, said: “Inspire North is a great place to work, and we are delighted with this recognition. To be awarded the second-highest score for our first application to Best Companies as the Inspire North family is an amazing achievement, and testament to the fantastic work and passion for our clients that exists within the group – especially in the first year following our merger. We are on the right path.”

Inspire North was awarded its accreditation for its Best Companies Index score following a group-wide survey, which measures how engaged people are at work and how they feel about their employer.

Jonathan Austin, CEO of Best Companies, said: “I would like to congratulate Inspire North on your achievement. Best Companies has been producing the accreditation standard since 2006 to acknowledge excellence in the workplace. Organisations like Inspire North have continued to focus on their employees and have been rewarded with an engaged workforce who tell us that this is a best company to work for.”
