The NWEEG (North West Employee Engagement Group) carries out an annual staff survey each year in an attempt to discover the best employers in the North West.
The Suresite Group, along with other members of the NWEEG, was invited to take part in this anonymous staff survey where they would be benchmarked against other North West small and medium sized enterprises.
Today, Suresite employs 49 and thanks to initiatives that include working closely with NWEEG, they feel they have been able to maintain the family feel the company enjoyed five years ago with just 14 employees.
“We are delighted with the results of this survey” says Karen Griffiths, Operations Director, “To score 80.8% for staff engagement vs the benchmark of 75.2% is a fantastic achievement.”
The survey also asked employees which five words would best describe the company culture and Suresite’s top six words in order of popularity were cited as: friendly, supportive, inclusive, motivational, positive and progressive.
The NWEEG was founded in 2014 and is the only employee engagement group to connect HR professionals and business leaders with engagement specialists and peers who face similar challenges in effectively engaging people every day.
The overarching purpose of the group is to help to make the North West of England the best place to work. They do this by presenting evidence, skills and real-life practical experiences of how business leaders have successfully engaged with their teams and subsequently improved their business as a result.
Other initiatives adopted by Suresite include, the provision of fresh fruit each Monday, weekly staff catch ups where they share business and personal events plus giving employees their birthdays off.
“Even within a growing company, Suresite still manages to retain a certain element of a family business, so the atmosphere is one of warmth and caring for all. Employees take a great pride in the company’s continued success.” Mary Andreas, Card Services Operations Manager.
