iCrossing rated ‘outstanding’ in the ‘Best Companies to Work For’ survey

February 18, 2014

Digital marketing agency, iCrossing is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a two star accreditation in the ‘Best Companies to Work For’ survey, rating them as ‘outstanding’ with their employees for overall work satisfaction.

The company first took part in the Best Companies workplace engagement survey in 2009, where it was listed in the ‘ones to watch’ category and has risen through the ranks ever since.

The Best Companies methodology includes independent and confidential surveys of employees on eight key areas; leadership and managers, personal growth and wellbeing, working in teams, giving something back to society; engagement with their job and organisation and how satisfied the employees are with their pay and benefits.

Rachel Collier, Chief Talent Officer at iCrossing says: “We’re thrilled that our employees have rated us so highly in the ‘Best Companies to Work For’ survey because ultimately the success of the agency is all down to the people who work here. It is vital that our employees are happy and motivated, which is why we do everything we can to make sure working here is rewarding, exciting and above all good fun.”

iCrossing recently launched a fully updated benefits scheme called ‘iCrossing Care’ (iCare) to ensure their rewards and benefits not only remain competitive but relevant and useful to their diverse mix of employees.

Latest additions to iCare include an all staff health cash plan, regular free Monday breakfasts to kick start the week, £1000 refer a friend bonus, baby bonus, a cycle to work scheme and workplace parking. The scheme also funds popular activities – ranging from the iCrossing Football team and visiting the opera to having a massage at work. The agency places particular importance on the opportunities it gives staff to carry out their own charitable work and to make donations to the agency’s annual chosen charity, which this year is Centerpoint.

In addition to these benefits, employees are offered professional qualifications relevant to their job role and can take part in free ‘lunch and learns’ which encourage staff to share their own knowledge and experience with colleagues.

Rosie Shimell, HR Manager said: “Learning and development lies at the very heart of our culture; we have grown our investment in training year on year, with more opportunities for our employees to learn new skills such as creative problem solving and decision making, delivering great presentations, leading and managing people.”

“What’s more, our annual Apprentice scheme has made the business accessible to the most talented of school leavers, whilst our graduate level roles attract the brightest future stars of the digital industry,” she adds.

Rachel Collier says: “We are absolutely committed to building on the recognition of the ‘Best Companies to Work For’ survey and will continue to review what we offer our employees and how we do things to make sure they really do get the most out of their time working here at iCrossing.”
