Satellite operator Avanti Communications has received Great Place To Work certification following positive survey feedback from its employees.
The certification recognises employers that foster a positive and nurturing environment and is based entirely on employees’ current working experience.
As part of the accreditation, the Great Place To Work team carries out its trust index survey to gain impartial employee feedback. Employees are asked a total of 60 questions to gauge their sense of credibility, respect, pride, camaraderie, and fairness in the workplace, with the results helping them to recognise what they are doing right and continually improve.
Avanti Communications rated highly for its justice (95%) leadership behaviour (91%), communication (91%), competence (90%), credibility (90%) and team (90%). As many as 94% agreed that the firm was worthy of receiving the certification.
The firm will hold the accreditation until July 2024.
Kyle Whitehill, chief executive officer at Avanti Communications, said: “We are incredibly proud to have been certified by our valued employees as a Great Place To Work. Getting feedback from our co-workers is essential to ensure we create a workplace culture that enables people to ‘Be More’.
“We believe that everyone has the potential to achieve their ambitions and we are determined to create opportunities to support this, both through our technology and as a responsibility as an employer. We look forward to using the results of this in-depth survey to continue to make Avanti a place to work we can be proud of.”
Avanti Communications offers its employees a pension scheme, life assurance and private medical insurance, a bonus scheme paid annually based on individual and employer performance against targets, 25 days of annual leave plus an additional day for birthdays, the option to buy or sell up to three holiday days per annum, and an employee assistance programme.
