Accreditations from Best Companies are the recognized standard in workplace engagement. Working with some of the world’s best-known brands, Best Companies measures, improves and recognizes great workplace engagement and compiles annual ‘Best Companies to Work For’ lists for organizations such as The Sunday Times and Business Insider.
Signifying ‘world class’ levels of workplace engagement, the Best Companies 3-star accreditation is the highest standard achievable and is awarded to organizations that truly excel.
Following a year of continued growth, including the recent acquisition of Colorado-based LMS specialists, Remote Learner, the 3-star accreditation for 2021 is an improvement on Learning Pool’s previous 2-star rating.
The accreditation is a welcome triumph in light of the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic which saw Learning Pool staff adjust to a remote working environment, almost overnight.
Louise McElvaney, Director of People and Performance said:
“Obtaining the top accreditation from Best Companies during a particularly challenging time is a tremendous achievement. Our team. which has grown to over 260 colleagues over the last 12 months, the engine behind our sustained success and continued growth.” She added, “we’re blown away by the positive feedback we received during this year’s survey.”
Throughout 2020, Learning Pool hired 50 new employees across its six office locations and has outlined plans to recruit a further 100 people in the next 12 months to fulfil the company’s plans of expansion.
Learning Pool’s CEO, Ben Betts also commented:
“We’re thrilled with the results of this year’s Best Companies survey. Accreditations like these reaffirm our commitment to ensuring a positive and open working environment and provides colleagues with an open channel to offer suggestions on how we can improve.” He continued, “our colleagues throughout the business have astonished us all year with their continued focus and enthusiasm, despite the obvious challenges they’ve been living through. It’ll be great to see what developments come in the next 12 months off the back of the feedback received. We’re already a great place to work. But we can be even better.”
