With a solid commitment to the people who make our business possible, BBD recently achieved the Platinum Seal in the 2020 Deloitte’s Best Company Survey.

Deloitte’s survey aims to understand how employees perceive their workplace environment to help companies determine where they can improve, and what they should celebrate.

This year, BBD achieved an overall engagement score of 92.8%, an improvement of 19.9% on our 2018 results.

The survey measures high-level employee engagement in terms of four critical drivers: Leadership, culture, experience and talent. These drivers are measured using a set of statements that participants respond to on a sliding agreement scale. This international best practice allows Deloitte to give strategic insights centred on each company’s staff opinion.

Despite an unexpectedly challenging year for many companies around the world, BBD’s overriding philosophy has always been to recognise, support and grow our people so that we can deliver outstanding solutions to our clients. Our achievements in this anonymous employee survey are testament to the success of our culture and approach. Through regular communication, a continued commitment to our teams and strong leadership, BBD is not only weathering these stormier seasons well, but still growing our business and our teams.

Peter Searle, BBD CEO, says: “Our ability to be agile in both decision-making and in response to external circumstances means job stability and business as usual for our teams. Of this, and our people, we are immensely proud.”
