AFI has been awarded one star accreditation as a great company to work for as part of the prestigious Best Companies accreditation scheme.
Best Companies accreditation follows the Michelin star-style rating system for organisations that show high levels of employee engagement. AFI, which employs about 500 staff, has been awarded the status at the first time of entering the scheme.
Jonathan Austin, CEO of Best Companies said “I would like to congratulate AFI on their outstanding achievement. This year it is encouraging to see that more and more organisations are recognising the value of employee engagement and are willing to benchmark themselves against the best to ensure they are offering their employees the best possible experience. Organisations like AFI have continued to focus on their employees and have been rewarded with an engaged workforce who tell us that this is a great place to work.”
Run by Best Companies Ltd – the company behind the ‘Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For’ listing – it uses a staff survey and questionnaire to look at factors including leadership, employee/manager relationships, how proud employees are to work for the organisation, their personal wellbeing, and whether they feel challenged in their job.
