FirstPort has joined a select group of companies to be named as one of the UK’s 2020 Top Employers.
FirstPort is one of only 82 companies to be given this prestigious certification by the Top Employers Institute, and is the only organisation in the property management sector to receive the status this year.
It follows a rigorous review of the organisation’s HR practices based on standards reviewed by the Institute across more than 600 HR practices. Plus an external audit benchmarking against the very best international standards.
The Top Employers Institute highlighted On-Boarding and Performance Development as areas that FirstPort excelled in the most.
Emma Smith, Head of Talent at FirstPort said: “To be recognised for the second consecutive year as one of the top employers in the UK is an outstanding honour. It demonstrates how hard everyone is working to make FirstPort a place where people are proud to work. It is also an endorsement from a respected external authority that FirstPort is a great place to join for a varied and fulfilling career.”
Top Employers Institute CEO David Plink added: “To be recognised as a Top Employer, an organisation has to prove that the implementation of their people strategies enriches the world of work of their employees. 2020’s certified participants are a shining example of a dedication to people practices as they continuously commit to empowering their employees for a better world of work. Congratulations!”
