It’s Official. GWA is a 5 Star Employer

We are proud to announce that Greaves West & Ayre has been awarded a 5* Award by independent employee engagement platform ‘WorkBuzz’.

This award recognises the best workplace cultures where employees are proud to work, are motivated to do more, and want to stay for the foreseeable future.

The challenges caused by COVID-19 triggered a re-evaluation of all our ways of operating. We had to be innovative in how we connected and communicated with you, our clients, and also internally with our team members.

In our last newsletter we made mention of the development of the GWA Academy – an inhouse centre of excellence.

Another initiative the firm has deployed is ‘WorkBuzz’. This is an independent organisation we partnered with to monitor employee engagement and provide us with valuable feedback on what improvements we can make.

In 2021 and 2022, WorkBuzz invited all GWA employees to provide confidential feedback about their work experience; ranging from their opinions on leadership and the organisational direction, to the efficacy of line managers, strength of teamwork, and how empowered individuals feel to do their roles.

We are delighted to say that the overall response from our team was very positive and was in the top 15% of all WorkBuzz clients worldwide.

However, we do not intend to rest on our laurels. When it comes to delivering Quality Advice and Quality Service to our clients, our team is our most valuable asset. We are committed to the training and development of our people at all levels  across all departments.
