BM receives Best Companies accreditation

BM Caterers has received a one-star rating by Best Companiesits 10th successive year of being accredited (excluding the pandemic years).

Published annually, the list recognises the UK’s most attractive and effective employers. Participating businesses are judged on factors including workplace engagement initiatives, staff wellbeing, benefits, company culture and values and can achieve up to three stars in total.

The organisation’s accreditation was based on a score generated by a Best Companies survey sent to all team members (nearly 1,000), who could submit their responses both confidentially and securely to provide honest and insightful feedback.

Team members were asked to respond to statements including about their wellbeing, pay and benefits, personal growth, team, and the leadership. More than 80 per cent of team members agreed BM was run on strong values and principles. Benefits include free critical illness/personal insurance, an Employee Assistance Programme, free private healthcare, and free life insurance. Eighty-three per cent also agreed that their work was an important part of their life, and 78 per cent of team members said their team was fun to work with.

Murray Soper, Head of People & Talent at BM, said: “We’re so happy to have been accredited by Best Companies once again. We’re committed to our team’s happiness and development and this gives us an accurate benchmark against which to compare our engagement levels year-on-year, and how we compare to others.

“Looking ahead, we have committed to a review of our family friendly benefits to lift them further and engaged a consultant who will work with us to review all our people policies and practices to drive equity in the attraction, retention and internal advancement of our people.

“We have also re-engaged Investors in People in a two-staged approach where regular and full diagnostic assessments of people-related activity will steer us in our quest to make things even better for everyone who works in the BM family.”
