It's Official - the Best Place to Work is in Chiswick
Financial Times names Business Park As One of UK's Top 50 Places to Work
Chiswick Business Park's management team, Enjoy-Work, has been recognised in a prestigious national poll as providing one of the UK’s best workplaces. The report carried out by The Great Place to Work Institute, was published in full in The Financial Times.
Chiswick Park, designed by the Richard Rogers Partnership and developed by Stanhope, is one of the UK’s leading business locations and is recognised as a pioneer in workplace design and management. The philosophy of the Park is if staff, or ‘guests' as they are called, maintain a healthy work/life balance and enjoy being at work they will be more productive. Companies such as Discovery, Foxtons, Paramount and Tullow Oil have all endorsed the Enjoy-Work brand by locating their European headquarters on the Park.
The Team were judged on their ability to meet a set of criteria which included diversity, the quality of the workplace, innovation initiatives, community relations, sustainability and corporate responsibility. The Enjoy-Work team impressed the assessment panel across all areas, and have been recognised as one of the top 50 places to work for in the UK.
Kay Chaston, Chief Executive of Enjoy-Work, said,“To our knowledge, Chiswick Park Enjoy-Work is the only company within the Financial Times Top 50, which actively creates a positive working environment not only for its own employees, but for employees from a multitude of other industry-leading companies across a range of sectors. To be recognised at this level after only six years of operation is a phenomenal team achievement and one that we will continue to build on.”
The Financial Times Best Workplaces report defines a great place to work as one where the employees: “Trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do, and enjoy the people they work with.”
