Matrix Networks has been awarded a 2-star accreditation and recognised as ‘Outstanding’ in its commitment to workplace engagement, in the 2019 ‘Best Companies to Work For’ survey.

The accreditation has been awarded based on feedback provided by the Company’s employees and is the second highest of four levels of workplace engagement, representing organisations which are striving for the top.

Surveys were issued earlier this year by Best Companies to Matrix Networks’ employees based at its three offices in Northampton, Slough and Warrington. The results of this feedback, which were received from 76% of invitees, were then considered alongside information gathered about the business, to determine an overall Best Companies Index (BCI) score.

BCI scores generated through the process are compiled by Best Companies and ranked for inclusion in ‘The Sunday Times Best Companies to Work For’ lists, to be published in the new year

“This is the first time we’ve taken part in a national employee engagement survey and we’re immensely proud to have achieved a 2-star accreditation,” said Rob Sparkes, Matrix Networks Managing Director. “As we said in our submission, we employ people who have the right skills to do the job, but it’s equally important that they’re a good match for the culture of our business.

“We like to think we’re a good company to work for, so it’s nice to know our employees agree and so does this national accreditation body.”

Matrix Networks will have to wait until the new year to find out if it’s successfully made it on to either the regional or national Best Companies to Work For lists. The results are due to be published in The Sunday Times and other partnering media outlets in February 2019.
