The ranking was achieved following direct feedback provided by Paxton employees, covering 8 key areas of leadership; my manager, my company, personal growth, my team, wellbeing, fair deal and giving something back.
Highlights from the employee survey provided an excellent insight into what it’s like to work at the company:
- 96% of staff believe they can make a valuable contribution to the success of the company
- 93% agree the organisation is run on strong values & principles
- 90% of people feel proud to work for Paxton
Commenting on the news, Adam Stroud, Paxton’s Chief Executive said: “We’re absolutely delighted to feature on the best companies to work for list. This is the first time we have entered, so to appear at number 49 is a fantastic achievement.
This is a wonderful milestone in Paxton’s journey, it embodies our ambition to be world-class in all that we do, encompassing everything from our products and services, to our working environment. We’ve worked hard to develop a positive company culture and to support our staff on each step of their career with us.
Due to the rapid expansion and year on year business growth, over the last two decades, three years has been the average time taken for Paxton to double in size. We’re now a sizeable company with over 300 employees and the incredible growth rate continues stronger than ever.
However, while hard work, focus, investment and a good strategy are essential to the success of the company, most important by a long way are the people that work for Paxton. I’d like to thank all of the Paxton team, they have been responsible for our success to date, and will continue to determine the extent of our future successes.”
