Good Energy praised as a ‘world class’ employer

Renewable energy supplier Good Energy has been praised for being a ‘world class’ employer after achieving the highest possible accreditation in the Best Companies to Work For scheme – as well as being named among the Top 100 large companies in the UK.

The Chippenham-based firm received the maximum three-star rating in the annual Best Companies Index which celebrates employee engagement – with nine in ten staff saying they ‘loved’ working there.

This is the first year that Good Energy has achieved the highest rating, which is described as ‘world class’ by the organisers.

Good Energy was also ranked second in the national list of utilities employers, 52nd in the national list of large employers, and 22nd in the South West regional list of all employers.

Good Energy was praised for its efforts after being independently assessed, based on feedback from a survey of staff.

Ninety-one per cent said their manager cared about how satisfied they are in their job and 90 per cent said they ‘loved’ working for the organisation.

In addition, 85 per cent said their team was fun to work with, and 79 per cent said their job was good for their personal growth.

Fran Woodward, Good Energy’s chief operating officer, said: “This accreditation is a huge achievement, especially given the challenges we have faced in the last few years from the pandemic to the energy crisis.

“We’ve succeeded in building a great culture, one where our purpose and values are reflected in how everyone acts and how we operate as a business.

“Peer-to-peer support and real teamwork are at our core, and it’s been great to see that shine through in the feedback from colleagues.

“I would like to thank all of our staff for their efforts. Together, we’ve created a working environment which brings out the best in everyone.”

Good Energy boasts a 100 per cent renewable energy mix, provided by 1,700 independent generators of wind, solar, biomass and hydroelectric power.

It was the first energy company to be approved as a ‘100 per cent renewable electricity provider’ by the Good Housekeeping Institute and has been accredited as a top-scoring Eco Provider for energy by Which?.
