The Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS) has been voted one of The Sunday Times Top 100 Best Companies to work for, in the not-for-profit sector. Based at Easton-on-the-Hill, near Stamford, CIPS is the world’s largest procurement and supply professional organisation. CIPS has offices in Asia Pac, MENA, Africa, Singapore, Turkey, Poland, China and the UK.
Best Companies measure and acknowledge excellence in workplace engagement. Each year hundreds of companies apply for the awards and only those with the highest level of overall employee engagement take a position on the prestigious list.
Places are based on confidential surveys completed by CIPS employees, measuring levels of fulfilment, motivation and engagement in the workplace. The application also had to include information about CIPS, such as staff numbers etc. and to provide evidence of support for local communities and the public good. In 2016 CIPS supported the local school, sports clubs and a club for elderly people, amongst many other projects globally.
This year, CIPS achieved an improved overall score of 33 out of a 100 which is five places above last year’s 38. The full rankings and details of all the best companies will be published in The Sunday Times this weekend.
CIPS said: “This is another excellent result for CIPS and a good improvement on last year’s results.
“Best Companies is a highly-popular and respected award given to organisations that have excelled in employee engagement. We are proud to be a part of Best Companies, seeking to raise the standards in the quality of employment.
“We have worked hard across the company to make CIPS a great place to work and support the local community. Every department has contributed to the application, working together to ensure we continually improve.”
