Lockton gains UK-wide recognition as ‘best place to work’
Lockton has ranked in Insurance’s top ten best companies to work for in 2021, according to Best Companies, the research agency that for several years has supplied data to the Sunday Times for its annual ‘Best Companies to Work For’ survey.
“This is an incredible achievement that reflects the unique culture appreciated by our Associates across the UK,” said Chris Brown, Managing Partner.
Lockton has also achieved regional accreditation, placing in the top 75 best large companies to work for in London, top ten best companies to work for in Northern Ireland, top 40 for Scotland and the top 100 for the Midlands.
In recognition of an ‘outstanding level of engagement’ from Associates, Lockton has also been awarded a two-star engagement rating from the group – the second highest rating achievable.
The Best Companies Group identifies the leading employers by conducting a confidential survey within each company to measure engagement and satisfaction of employees. The survey uses the responses to generate a Best Companies Index (BCI) score measuring overall engagement, benchmarking this against other companies.
“We are extremely proud to be recognised as one of the best places to work,” said Chris Brown. “This year has brought unprecedented challenges to many of our Associates, yet we have kept our focus on delivering exceptional client service, while providing invaluable support to one another. This culture is what makes Lockton a fantastic place to work. We owe our success to our people across every region, and I want to thank them all wholeheartedly.”
