The Great Places to Work Institute has 25 years’ experience of researching what makes an organisation a healthy and inspiring workplace.
Each year, they survey over 5,500 companies and 1 million employees. Run in association with The Guardian, Financial Times and British Airways Business Magazine, the survey is based on three factors: how well employees trust their management, how much pride they feel in working for the organisation, and the extent to which they enjoy working with their colleagues.
Lansons has also been awarded the ‘Laureate Award’ which is given to companies who have consistently been in the Top 50 over a five year period and is the agency's 8th time in the Top 50. Fishburn Hedges appeared on the list for the 10th year running and the institute recognised the agency as a "Master" in the Best Workplaces programme, the only comms agency in the UK ever to receive the 'Master' accolade.
