Seeking the very best employers

Third success: FedEx Express’s Chris Heslop, centre, with Jonathan Howes, Bermuda Press (Holdings) CEO, and Arthur Wightman, CEO of PwC Bermuda. FedEx came top at last year’s awards

The search has begun to find the best employers on the island.

The Bottom Line magazine is seeking to recognise the very best of them in the eighth annual Bermuda Top Ten Employers Awards.

The people-based survey endeavours to find which of the island’s companies offer the most rewarding work environment across a number of key employment areas.

The anonymous survey allows employees the opportunity to say what they think about their employers, who in turn can get great feedback on what they are doing right and wrong to motivate their staff, and to retain and attract talent.

Every participating organisation will get a free employment satisfaction report created from the anonymous feedback, outlining key recommendations for improving satisfaction.

For the past four years, the survey has been sponsored by professional services firm PwC Bermuda. And this is the sixth year the awards have partnered with Global Research, one of Bermuda’s leading quantitative research firms, to create the online survey and provide statistical analysis of the key measurement areas. No judges are involved.

The survey focuses on generating data from employees regarding a number of key employment areas including staff benefits, hiring rates, workplace safety and conditions, internal communication, compensation, corporate culture and overall satisfaction, among other areas.

International and local companies vie for top honours and those that emerge from the survey with the highest ratings will be honoured at an awards ceremony in late September.

In the 2015 survey, it was FedEx who ranked number one for a third successive year, closely followed by Hamilton Insurance Group, tech services firm Fireminds, insurer Argus Group and beverage giant Bacardi.

CellOne, BF&M, Stevedoring Services, Ariel Re and Butterfield & Vallis made up the rest of the top ten. All were honoured in a breakfast ceremony held at the Hamilton Princess.

Each of this year’s top ten will also be featured in the September issue of The Bottom Line.
