Top 50 best employers in London
4 March 2019, (London) – Lockton has been listed in the top 50 companies to work for in London by Best Companies, the workplace engagement specialists.
Best Companies have collaborated with Business Insider to produce the regional lists, and Lockton has been ranked Number 38 for London. Lockton is the only insurance broker on the London Top 50 list. There are 237,515 employers registered in London, 6,495 of which are in the Financial and Insurance sector, according to UK government data. A third of the UK’s business are in London and the Southeast.
The Best Companies lists are based on extensive confidential surveys of more than 250,000 staff in organisations across the country. Neil Nimmo, Managing Partner of Lockton LLP, said: “We are delighted to be recognised for the unique culture we have built here at Lockton. We are an entrepreneurial and ambitious company with a privately-owned business and partnership model, which has produced a culture that values respect, an ethical, moral and caring approach, where bright, driven and proactive people can thrive.”
Some of the key figures from the survey of Lockton employees are:
The number of e-bikes, e-scooters, pedestrians and cyclists has increased substantially during the Covid-19 pandemic, raising the risk of accident for fleet operators. Companies can address this heightened threat through new training programmes and technology upgrades.
Businesses are becoming increasingly concerned about reputational risk and the severe impact it can cause to companies’ revenues and profits.
It would not be unreasonable to expect that, almost three years after the EU referendum in the UK, executives would have a clear view on the consequences the decision is likely to have for the company they lead and a plan to manage the potential negative impact of the decision.
Consulting with staff to find out what will make them feel comfortable when returning to their workplace after lockdown rules are relaxed is crucial to ensure that the plan will be successful in protecting staff and clients from COVID-19.
