Leading security specialist VSG was awarded a Britain’s Top Employer 2012 certification at Britain’s Top Employers 2012 awards dinner last night for offering its employees exceptional working conditions.
VSG, part of Compass Group UK & Ireland, was one of 67 companies to receive the accreditation, which recognises excellence in HR and HR offerings, based on independent research conducted by the Corporate Research Foundation (CRF) Institute.
The CRF Institute, a specialist in the field of international research into HR management and working conditions, has just completed this year’s research into the HR practices and employee offerings of a large number of employers in the UK.
The organisations examined were assessed based on the following criteria: Primary and Secondary Benefits and Working Conditions, Training and Development, Career Development, and Company Culture. Only those organisations that met the stringent research criteria received the Top Employers certification.
VSG scored highest in the area of Training & Development, and this is the first time that it has been certified as one of Britain’s Top Employers.
Simon Reeves, HR Director at VSG said; “People are at the heart of our business and we are absolutely delighted to receive a certification as one of Britain’s top employers. VSG is passionately committed to training and we will continue to invest in our people, providing them with the best possible working conditions and learning and development opportunities.”
Eleanor Nickerson, Country Manager, Britain’s Top Employers said: “This year we’re proud to certify our strongest group of Top Employers to date. Increasingly we’re seeing creative and intelligent HR practices and employee offerings that ensure the working experience is positive, and that employee groups get what they want from their employment. We’re seeing a heavy emphasis on flexible benefits, on segmented employee offerings and on career development that ensures employee growth and good succession planning.”
