Acumen named one of the UK’s Best Workplaces for Development™ 2024

We are proud to announce that we have been recognised as one of the top UK’s Best Workplaces for Development™!

New for this year, the UK’s Best Workplaces for Development List recognises companies making employee development a key part of company culture. These workplaces offer employees the chance to better themselves, to learn new skills, and to progress within the organisation. They understand that development is not one-size fits all, and they actively support every single employee to undertake their own tailored journey of growth. This commitment to personal and professional development fosters a sense of purpose, makes employees feel valued, and drives them to contribute their best to the organization.

Our inclusion on this exclusive list officially acknowledges our commitment to development, innovation and employee growth. To compile the UK’s Best Workplaces for Development List, Great Place to Work® reviewed our culture, benefits, approach to leadership and development, alongside anonymous responses from our employees. They then used these data insights to benchmark our company's employee value proposition against the culture our employees actual experience. Only the businesses who achieve the highest scores after evaluation receive Best Workplaces™ status.

From our anonymous employee feedback, we can see that overall our team highly commends our dedication to ongoing learning, individual growth, and the culture of knowledge exchange across our business.

Tillie Newnham, People Experience Manager at Acumen said: ‘’Our inclusion in the UK's Best Workplaces for Development list is a testament to our commitment to empowering our people to grow their careers and skills at Acumen. We understand that our team's talent and capability are vital to both our success and their personal growth, and we are thrilled to be recognised for this.’’

“Employee training and development isn’t just about teaching employees to do their jobs. It’s about showing employees they are valued and that there is a path of progression available. When employees don’t see opportunity, they don’t bring their best selves to work and productivity and retention will be adversely impacted,” said Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place To Work® UK.

“Employee development is future-focused and evidences a commitment to employee’s long-term growth. It ensures your people feel valued, and feeds into the overall company culture and strategy. Each year, we recognise organisations whose thriving workplace cultures are enabling both their people and their business to flourish. Opportunities for learning and development are a crucial element of this success, which is why we’re so thrilled to be recognising this year, for the very first time, the UK’s Best Workplaces for Development.’’

Acumen is so proud of this achievement and look forward to using the valuable insights Great Place To Work has provided us with to build on our culture and employee satisfaction. If you would like to be part of our GREAT team, check out our latest vacancies here.
