Ascertiva Group earns Times Top 100 company accolade
Ascertiva Group, the company renowned for its NICEIC and NQA brands, has become a Times Top 100 Best Company to Work For.The accolade is awarded on the views of employees and the policies and processes of employers. It identifies best practice and ranks companies chiefly by their results in eight key indicators of staff engagement.
‘I am delighted that Ascertiva Group, NICEIC and NQA, has been recognised as one of the best 100 companies to work for,’ says Emma Clancy, CEO Ascertiva Group. ‘This is a result of hard work and effort by all of us, at every level in the company and it makes me extremely proud.’
Ascertiva Group also received a one star rating from the Best Companies award, which is based solely upon employee feedback. Best Companies has established its reputation through an authoritative and highly rigorous methodology.
This awards’ methodology identifies workplace performance and best practice according to eight key factors. These factors are particularly significant as they are defined through the results from the survey process, and therefore by employees themselves, as critical factors in workplace engagement:
• My Manager
• Personal Growth
• My Team
• Giving Something Back
• My Company
• Fair Deal
Andrew Selous, Conservative MP for South West Bedfordshire said, ‘Congratulations to the Ascertiva Group on this tremendous accolade. It is a mark of recognition for all the great work they do both inside and outside the office and it is pleasing see a local firm that so many employees are delighted to work for. The group have set a real benchmark for firms in the area.’
Last year, in addition to increasing company profits across the Group, Ascertiva employees took part in volunteering days at Luton and Dunstable Hospital and helped create a nature reserve at Lower Watling School in Dunstable. Staff also helped raise thousands of pounds for local charities and recently contributed to the fund to buy vital life saving equipment for the maternity unity at the hospital.
The group’s NICEIC brand is also a shirt sponsor for Luton Town FC.
‘Everyday I see something that makes me feel really proud of the work we do here,’ added Emma. ‘I am delighted to be CEO for an organisation that so many people enjoy working for and the Times Top 100 Mark is a great reward and recognition for the entire group.’
