Following my previous blog post https://thoughtsbthings.co.uk/so-youre-finding-it-hard-to-recruit-and-retain-staff , why is knowing what your values are so important?
According to research conducted by Buffer, 80% of Fortune 100 publicly promote their values. Additionally, organisations with a high sense of purpose outperform others by 400%! I think that’s a good enough reason to see that there is a real investment return on going through the process I’ve been looking at websites in financial planning and healthcare particularly as they are service based businesses. Many of the top businesses in these sectors are very much client focused and there is very little, if anything on what it’s like to work for them.
I decided to do a bit of research and looked at some websites of businesses I know that have a great culture. I’ve included a financial planning business, a tech business and virtual PA service
Not surprisingly these businesses are in the Top 100 Sunday Times list of best places to work. They are very clear in terms of the people they want to work in their business. I know Moneypenny doesn’t have a recruitment problem in any shape or form. You feel the culture as soon as you walk through the door and it matches what’s on their website.
