Britain's Top Employers: A Guide To The Best Companies To Work For

 
9780002570688: Britain's Top Employers: A Guide To The Best Companies To Work For

An insightful guide profiling the most attractive companies to work for in the UK, all of whom can be described as leaders and innovators in managing their most important resource – people.

Backed by a panel of experts consisting of analysts, journalists, management consultants, trade associations and specialists in human resources, each company has been interviewed and assessed by members of the Corporate Research Foundation’s team of writers.

Each profile asks: “What makes this company an attractive one to work for and what would it be like for me to be part of it?” Answering this question has much more to do with culture and style of a company, and less to do with formal policies, structures or procedures.

This book will be a must for a wide range of readers – graduates, young executives, professional recruitment agencies, company analysts and watchers, management, HR professionals. Job-seeking graduates will find the approach a useful and objective counterweight to the glossy, comfy image that is often portrayed in recruitment brochures. Professionals considering their first or second move will find this book particularly interesting as it helps them to contrast their own real-life experiences with the opportunities in the business world elsewhere.

From the Back Cover:

WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR WHEN SELECTING A COMPANY TO WORK OR?
HIGH RATES OF PAY?
CAREER PROSPECTS?
A RELAXED, FRIENDLY, WORK ENVIRONMENT?
SUPERB TRAINING?

'Britain’s Top Employers' offers incisive and compelling insights into the best, most forward thinking companies existing in this country today. A shortlist of the brightest firms has been compiled, all of which take a leading, innovatory approach to managing their most important resource – people.

Each profile asks: “What makes this company an attractive one to work for, and what would it be like for me to be a part of it?” The response to this question goes beyond statistics, and directly to the essence of the firm – its culture, style and feel, rather than its formal policies, structures and procedures.

The specialist business authors also recognise, reallistically, that no one company can get everything right all the time – their objective summaries provide a useful counterweight to the glossy, often uninformative, company brochure.

Whether you are a graduate, a young executive, a professional recruiter, a company analyst, a manager or an HR and personnel professional, this book will be an invaluable career tool for you.
