FirstPort, the UK’s largest residential property manager, has retained its status as a Top Employer in the UK, after being awarded the prestigious certification for the third consecutive year by the Top Employers Institute.
Being certified as a Top Employer showcases an organisation’s dedication to a better world of work and exhibits this through excellent people policies and practices.
The Top Employers Institute programme certifies organisations based on the participation and results of their HR Best Practices Survey. This survey covers six HR domains consisting of 20 topics such as People Strategy, Work Environment, Talent Acquisition, Learning, Well-being and Diversity & Inclusion and more.
Michael Venus, Chief People Officer at FirstPort, said: “We are delighted to be named among the UK’s top employers for the third year in a row. This award is hugely important to us, because the accreditation process looks at a number of key themes that ensure FirstPort is a great place to work.
“During these challenging times, it has been important to support our employees as they have adapted to the many changes in both their professional and personal lives. In doing so, we have been able to focus on the wellbeing of our employees, whilst continuing to support their professional development throughout 2020.
“At FirstPort, we are extremely proud of our team, who continue to deliver the best possible service for our customers and clients, and it is a credit to this team that we have achieved this award once again.”
Top Employers Institute CEO David Plink says: “Despite the challenging year we have experienced (which has certainly made an impact on organisations around the globe), FirstPort has continued to demonstrate the power of putting their people first in the workplace. We are proud to share this year’s announcement and congratulate the organisations who have been certified in their respective countries through the Top Employers Institute programme.”
