To recognise the UK's top employers in the advice sector, Professional Adviser is launching its inaugural ‘Best Financial Advisers to Work for' survey and awards.
By participating in a two-part assessment process, advisers will be able to gain crucial benchmarking data for their businesses as well as putting themselves in the running to make the inaugural ‘Best Financial Advisers to Work for' survey and to win an award for Best Employer, which will be presented at the Professional Adviser Awards next February.
Why take part?
- To attract the best new talent to your business
- To highlight the success of your current work practices
- To make your employees proud
- To benchmark yourself against other firms
- To measure your performance against a fixed standard
In addition, ‘Best Employer' winners will receive a special logo to display on their marketing material
To be eligible for consideration as one of the Best Financial Advisers to Work for, companies must: be a publicly or privately held business; have a facility in the UK; have a minimum of 15 employees working in the UK; be in business a minimum of one year; and work in the financial advice sector.
Companies that have wider functions may enter, but only for the part of the business that works directly in or with the financial advice sector. As an example, a bank can enter on behalf of its financial advice division, but not on behalf of the company as a whole. Applicants should therefore indicate whether they are a financial adviser firm, or a financial adviser division of a larger organisation. Further details on eligibility are available here.
The simple yet thorough company assessment, which is overseen by Best Companies Group, is a two-part process designed to gather detailed data about each participating business. In the first part, the employer completes an online questionnaire and in the second part, employees of the company complete an online survey. Further details of the process are available here.
Participation in the process is free and the deadline for registering a business for assessment is 2 September 2016.
