Action Sustainability recognised for commitment to workplace excellence with Best Companies accolade

Action Sustainability has been recognised for its approach to workplace engagement with a sought-after industry standard.

We have been certified by Best Companies and recognised for our commitment to employees, with a ‘One to Watch’ status, which represents ‘good’ levels of engagement. Achieving a Ones to Watch status takes a BCI score of at least 600 – we are happy to have achieved well above this score, with a 96% employee completion rate.

Ian Heptonstall, Director and Co-Owner of Action Sustainability, said: “I am extremely proud that our employee engagement strategy has been recognised with a One to Watch Best Companies accreditation. I hope our recognition speaks volumes not just for what a great place to work Action Sustainability is, but also for what an inspiring sector Sustainability is. But we recognise that this is a work in progress, and we will continue our efforts to be an even better employer.”

Shaun McCarthy OBE, Director and Co-Owner of Action Sustainability, said: “Ian and I are committed to ensuring our company is the best it can be, including empowering our team to share their ideas and feedback, so that meaningful change is made.”

Jonathan Austin, Founder and CEO of Best Companies, said: “Congratulations to Action Sustainability on this significant achievement of a ‘One to Watch’ status. This award recognises that they understand the importance of workplace engagement and genuinely value their people.”

Best Companies has over 20 years’ experience in helping organisations measure and improve employee engagement using a robust methodology, with their accreditation standard certifying excellence in the workplace since 2006.
