ZEAL is officially a Top 50 place to work

Campaign have just announced their annual list of the ‘Best UK Agencies to Work For’ and ZEAL is very proud to learn that we have ranked in the Top 50, in our very first year of entry.

Campaign’s ‘Best Places to Work’ celebrates employers who have proved they know what it takes to create environments where people love to come to work.

This year their rigorous, independent research has identified and named 79 agencies worthy of the title ‘Best Place to Work’ and ZEAL ranks 47 in this list.

The survey process was managed by Best Companies Group (BCG), an independent workplace excellence research firm.  BCG managed the registration process, conducted the two-part survey process, evaluated the data and, ultimately, selected the employers that were good enough to make the list.

Part one of the assessment (one-quarter of each organisation’s score) consisted of the BCG Employer Questionnaire (EQ), used to collect information about each employer’s benefits, policies, practices, and other general information.

Part two of the assessment (three-quarters of each organisation’s score) involved the confidential 78-question Employee Engagement & Satisfaction Survey (EESS), which was used to evaluate the employees’ workplace experience and culture.

The combined data allowed the experts at BCG to conduct an in-depth analysis of the strengths and challenges that exist in each organisation. BCG’s workplace assessment experts determined who was good enough to make the list and then ranked those winners in the different size categories. The categories were classed as: small – 15-49 UK employees; medium – 50-149 UK employees; and large – 150 or more UK employees.

ZEAL ranks even higher, at number 27, in the list of small UK agencies. (Although having now grown to 50+ people we will be in a different bracket next year!)

As well as the recognition that goes with this coveted award, the real benefit ZEAL gets from the process is a wealth of feedback and insights into how to get even better.  Needless to say our Head of Talent and HR will be using this goldmine to take us to the next level in both our Manchester and London offices.

The final and most important thanks of course has to go to our amazing team of superstars who bring their ZEAL to work every day to change the game for our clients.  Thank you all for taking time out to support this process with your honest feedback and for making our agency such a great place to be.

Thank you
