An electronics manufacturer on the Essex sunshine coast has won a prestigious Gold Accreditation in the Best Employers Eastern Region.

In a resounding affirmation of its exceptional workplace environment, Pickering Group has proudly achieved the prestigious Gold Accreditation in the Best Employers Eastern Region. This esteemed recognition comes as a result of anonymous surveys completed by Pickering’s employees, focusing on Pickering’s employee engagement, company culture, and values. Here’s what the judges had to say:

"An excellent application with lots of really strong evidence of the work undertaken to date and proposed further actions.

There were lots of great examples of creative and innovative engagement and wellbeing activities which clearly pay off as reflected in the fabulous retention rates. It was great to see the use of the data from the survey of new starters as evidence in recruitment and retention.

The extent of charity work undertaken is amazing and it is clear that the company is on a journey to extend its ESG activities which is really positive to see."

Best Employers is a program designed to help over 600 businesses understand their employees’ experience. The program empowers businesses to go above and beyond for the workplace, promoting good company culture and environments. Every two years, companies across the Eastern Region are invited to take part in an Employee Engagement Survey. After all of the results are received they are then benchmarked  and the companies with the best results are invited to apply for a accreditation. The applications are then assessed by an independent panel of judges.

This Gold Accreditation serves as a testament to Pickering Group’s unwavering dedication to creating a workplace where innovation, positivity, and support shines. Pickering Group continues to set new benchmarks in the industry, not only through its cutting-edge electrical solutions, but also through its commitment to nurturing a workforce that excels and finds fulfillment in their careers.
