What is Best Employers Eastern Region?

Best Employers starts with a free employee survey, to help understand and measure your organisations employee engagement. It helps you to gain clarity on how and where to focus.

How it works - four key steps

  • Step one:

    The free biennial employee survey measures employee engagement, company culture and values. It’s easy for employees to complete online and because it is 100% confidential it encourages open and honest answers.

  • Step two:

    Each organisation receives a tailored report summarising the findings of the survey and an action plan with any opportunities for further development. Participating businesses also have the unique benefit of not only accessing valuable data on their own organisation, but can also benchmark their scores against other organisations in the region.

  • Step three:

    All participants are automatically entered for a series of prestigious awards, presented at a high-profile event. The winners are selected based on the employee feedback from the survey – so staff effectively vote for their organisation to win by sharing their experiences of what it is really like to work there. Participating organisations can also apply for accreditation by completing a form with supporting evidence and is judged by a panel of advisers alongside the engagement scores from the survey.

  • Step four:

    Participating organisations become part of a growing network of Best Employers which shares the latest thinking on employee engagement.

Best Employers Eastern Region is open to organisations from all sectors across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk.




As a participant in Best Employers, you’ll need to encourage as many employees as possible to complete the survey. Watch these videos for top tips and encouraging participation.

    This includes customisable questions relating to your organisation’s key priorities, communication and learning and development opportunities.
