Brunel Group has achieved an ‘outstanding’ rating for workplace engagement following a survey hosted by Best Companies Ltd. Employees of Brunel Group took part in a company-wide ‘b-Heard’ survey, which recognises and rewards businesses for excellent engagement.

For the fourth year running, Brunel has been awarded the sought-after 2* accreditation achieved only through an ‘outstanding’ commitment to workplace engagement. Following this, the Group has also been placed in three prestigious Best Companies lists, nationally, regionally and within the industry.

Alongside the ‘outstanding’ achievement, Brunel Group’s high score has seen them listed on ‘The UK’s 100 Best Mid-Sized Companies to Work For 2021’, ‘The South West’s 50 Best Companies to Work For 2021’ and ‘Insurance’s 10 Best Companies to Work For 2021’.

The overall results are a true testament to the dedicated teams with Brunel Group and highlight the growth and successes the Group has seen over the past year, despite being faced with the Pandemic. In just over 2 years the Group has gone from strength to strength following 5 acquisitions and a brand-new office opening.

Brunel Group provides independent insurance and financial planning solutions to a variety of corporates, businesses and individuals, with over 8,000 clients. They are one of the UK’s fastest growing insurance and financial planning groups, employing over 90 staff, with 6 offices across the UK.

Their ‘outstanding’ achievement in the Best Companies survey also comes in the same year that Brunel Insurance Brokers successfully renewed their Chartered status by the Chartered Institute of Insurance, being recognised again for its commitment to client service and industry knowledge and expertise.

According to Best Companies, ‘an engaged workforce is more motivated and productive because people take pride in what they are doing and have faith in those around them. This leads to better working relationships, greater collaboration and ultimately a more successful organisation.’

Russell Lane, CEO of Brunel Group, said ‘It’s fantastic to see such high levels of employee engagement throughout Brunel Group. We are delighted to have obtained an ‘outstanding’ 2* result for the 4th year running and very pleased to have made it onto three Best Companies lists! While the insurance and financial planning arms of the Group continue to thrive and grow, it is important to us that our employees continue to remain as engaged and passionate about the business as they are today. The b-Heard survey is valuable to us to not only highlight our strengths but allow us to adapt in a way to continue supporting employee engagement further. We are proud of this excellent result.’
