Axis Communications, the network video product company, has been recognised as one of the UK’s best workplaces in 2019, at a ceremony at Tobacco Dock, London on Wednesday, May 8. The company was placed tenth out of 25 in the small business category, along with 131 other UK organisations, achieving an employee Trust Index score of 94 per cent. The independent assessment uses a unique methodology to uncover the UK’s most thriving workplaces.
Understanding the perspective of employees is key to building a successful workplace the awards organisers say. To determine an organisation’s ranking, Great Place to Work administers its Trust Index survey to employees, which represents two-thirds of the final score. The remaining third comes from the Culture Audit, a business-driven questionnaire that evaluates the organisation’s HR and leadership practices, policies and culture.
Victoria Paine, HR Manager Northern Europe at Axis Communications said after the award: “We are delighted that Axis UK has been awarded Great Place to Work status. At Axis we believe that our success as a company is a direct result of our culture and core values and we are proud of how our employees reflect this. Being awarded this status is recognition of the hard work, effort and dedication that all of our employees make. Being a great place to work is a team effort, and we have a great team!”
Some 94pc of UK employees stated it was a great place to work. The company adds that it also prides itself on promoting a high-trust culture that engages employees and drives better business. With a specific focus on business conduct, social and environmental responsibility, Axis seeks to minimise impact, create a healthy working environment, eradicate corruption and ensure respect for human rights. All Axis’ UK employees said that “This organisation manages its impact upon society responsibly.”
Atul Rajput, Regional Director, Northern Europe at Axis Communications, pictured centre, said: “At Axis we believe in ‘Innovation for a smarter, safer world’ with sustainability being an integral part of Axis’ long term strategy. Technology should be an enabler that improves peoples’ lives, however, this cannot be achieved without developing and sustaining a workplace culture that has broader values embedded within it. Looking at the feedback we received from our employees, it is clear Axis strives to support, value and develop employees to maintain a happy and engaged workforce. But it also reflects our wider goal of a purpose beyond profit and is a real statement on our commitment to sustainable business principles.”
