Healix is one of just 498 organisations that have achieved Star Status in the 2011 Best Companies to Work For Accreditation. Over 1,000 companies applied for the recognition and Healix was awarded a First Class Star, making it one of the country's best employers.
Best Companies Accreditation awards an elite star scoring system for organisations that demonstrate high levels of employee engagement. Based on staff feedback, organisations receive a Best Companies index score that determines their star rating. Healix achieved a First Class Star rating, illustrating its commitment to offering staff an engaging and rewarding place to work.
"This is the third time Healix has achieved Best Companies Accreditation", said Paul Beven, Director, Healix Group. "Healix is one of only 256 organisations to gain one star status this year, which is a reflection of the quality of support we offer our staff. And when compared to other small companies who applied for accreditation, Healix's highest ranking factor was 'Giving something back', which is the area of the survey that explored how much our employees think we give back to society and whether we are driven by profit motives alone.
"Healix's excellent feedback from staff in this area is testament to the company's strong moral values and shows how much belief employees have in the business, making it a fantastic place to work."
Jonathan Austin, CEO and founder, Best Companies said, "This year it is encouraging to see that more and more organisations are recognising the value of employee engagement and are willing to benchmark themselves against the best to ensure they are offering their employees the best possible experience. Organisations that have achieved accreditation have continued to focus on their employees and have been rewarded with engaged workforces who tell us that these are great places to work."
