Barchester Healthcare has been awarded a triple honour at the 2021 Best Companies Live event where the best employers in the UK were unveiled. The Best Companies awards recognise companies’ commitment to their employees and to workplace engagement and are made all the more meaningful because they are awarded based on feedback from a randomly selected cross-section of the company’s own employees.
The award ceremony is usually held in London but instead the winners and league tables were announced via a virtual awards ceremony held on 21 May 2021.
Barchester Healthcare was awarded a 2 star Outstanding status by its employees, the company achieved 11th place in the top 20 Best Health & Social Care Companies to work for and Barchester was listed 14th in the Top 25 Best Big Companies to Work For in the UK.
Best Companies Founder & CEO Jonathan Austin said: “I would like to congratulate Barchester Healthcare on achieving a place on the 2021 Best Companies to Work For Lists. Being named as a Best Company is something that organisations the length and breadth of the nation strive for – but only the very best achieve.”
Genevieve Glover, Group HR Director for Barchester Healthcare, comments: “This is our third consecutive year to be recognised as one of the Best Companies to work for and this year we are absolutely delighted to not only progress from 1 Star to 2 Star accreditation but also to be named one of the Top 10 Best Health & Social Care Companies to work for in the UK. Achieving 2 Star Outstanding status with Best Companies, especially given the year we have just had, means so much because it is based on feedback from our own frontline staff. It means that our wonderful staff feel valued, appreciated and motivated to deliver the best possible care for our residents and patients. We are thrilled that our staff enjoy working for us and that they feel recognised for all that they do. At Barchester, we are a family and the past year has shown that we can do anything if we all pull together.”
