Top honour for workplace engagement in latest report too

AJ Bell leaps up the Best Companies to Work For rankings

AJ Bell, the investment platform headquartered in Salford Quays, has strengthened its position in the Sunday Times Top 100 Best Companies to Work For, jumping up to 28th position in the 2019 list from 86th in 2018.

In addition, AJ Bell has been awarded a three-star accreditation, which Best Companies class as ‘extraordinary levels of workplace engagement’.  This is the highest accreditation that can be achieved and is only awarded to businesses that truly excel.

The Sunday Times Top 100 Best Companies to Work For has been recognising excellent employee engagement for almost 20 years.  It measures how engaged people are at work and how they feel about their employer.

AJ Bell is one of the fastest growing investment platforms in the UK and completed a successful listing on the main market of the London Stock Exchange in December 2018.  To accommodate this growth the company moved into its new Exchange Quay head office in 2017. 

The workspace was designed in collaboration with staff in order to ensure employee engagement and create a collaborative working environment focused on providing first class service to AJ Bell’s customers. 

As well as a state of the art working environment the office includes a gym, a roof terrace and a dining area and lounge which transforms into a bar for staff once a month.

Andy Bell, chief executive at AJ Bell, pictured, said: "An engaged workforce is absolutely vital to our business.  It is our staff that ensure we provide first-class service to our customers and happy customers fuel the growth of our business. 

"We have invested significantly in this area over the years and it is particularly pleasing to see our Best Companies ranking improve at the same time as our workforce has grown considerably in line with our business expansion.”

"An engaged workforce is absolutely vital to our business"
