Acumen are officially a ‘Great place to work’!
We are delighted to announce that we have been recognised as a ‘Great Place to Work’ by the Great Place to Work institute®. We are now featured alongside some of the UK’s top organisations as one of their certified and recommended organisations for company culture.
The certification process involves capturing valuable employee feedback using their research-driven Trust Index© survey, which aims to assess engagement and understand the perspective of employees. Furthermore, the survey aims to collect details about the programmes and practises that make the workplace unique.
This is a huge achievement for us, and a massive milestone in Acumen’s growth. Out of over a total of 70 statements about the business, 88% of all responses were positive (often true or almost always true). Here are some of the highlights from the survey:
95% of respondents agreed that Acumen is a ‘Great Place to Work’
98% of respondents felt that they are treated fairly no matter their background or demographic
96% of respondents feel that working at Acumen is welcoming, fun and supportive
95% of respondents feel that they can be themselves at work, that we care about each other and that we celebrate those who try new and better ways of doing things, regardless of the outcome.
An overarching theme of the survey was that we are proud of what we’ve achieved and are prepared to go the extra mile to get the job done.
Commenting on the recognition, Nick Ryan, Chief Commercial Officer and founder at Acumen stated:
"The culture we continue to develop has enabled us to enjoy low staff turnover and very high levels of employee engagement - this has helped us deliver exponential business growth and a headcount increase of 30% during 2021. We are very confident of our ability to drive even more growth over the forthcoming years and ensure our teams consistently ‘own it and enjoy it.'"
Since 2006, we have been working with FMCG businesses around the world, implementing smart revenue management consulting and software solutions to deliver lasting change. Acumen believes in smart ways of working, innovating and challenging the status quo. From our consultants to our developers, we are made up of bright individuals with a passion for delivering top quality work, turning complex challenges into simple solutions. Our company culture values collaboration, honesty and remembering to ‘Own it and enjoy it’ wherever possible. We are extremely proud of our people, and firmly believe this is one of the things that makes us unique.
