Its Official! We're Great-Place-To-Work Certified.

95% Positive Experience at Barwood Capital


Barwood Capital today announced that it is Great Place to Work-Certified™.  

Great Place to Work® (GPTW) is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience and the leadership behaviours proven to deliver market-leading revenue and increased innovation.  Validated employee feedback is gathered with GPTW’s rigorous, data-driven For All methodology.   

To be Certified, an organisation must score at least 65% of employees having a consistently positive experience, so Barwood Capital was delighted to score 95% in this category. Great Place to Work

Other standout results were scoring over 90% in 49 of the 60 categories, with 95% of employees agreeing that their role is “not just a job” and 91% of employees agreeing that they “want to work here for a long time”. 

One employee testimonial said, “Being a small business, the company empowers its employees to take full responsibility and ownership of the areas they are responsible for”. 

In 2020 Barwood Capital devised a Sustainability Framework as part of its on going work towards ESG and an element of this is to maintain and improve staff engagement.  Seeking this certification was in order to ascertain current opinions amongst staff, so to score so highly has been a real positive. GPTW
