Oscar named Top Recruiter in RBCI North West Best Companies to Work for List 

Technology and energy recruitment firm Oscar has achieved an impressive 4th place in this year’s RBCI North West Best Companies to work for list, and are the number 1 ranked recruitment company on the list. 

The 75-strong list, compiled by Best Companies, recognises the organisations that are leading the way in creating engaging and exciting workplaces. The research spotlights the region’s employers that best understand that engaging with their workforce is the most effective way to attract and retain the best talent in challenging markets.

The Regional Best Companies Index (RBCI) is the most rigorous way of measuring employee engagement. Utilising the Best Companies b-Heard Survey, employees are asked to score 70 questions on a 7 point scale from ‘Strongly Disagree’ to ‘Strongly Agree’.

Results are then calculated from the responses to 50 scoring questions aligned to the 8 Factors of Workplace Engagement. The final score is normalised for company size band and calculated out of 1000.

Managing Director of Oscar, Andy Morrell said: “In a monumental week for Oscar, where we have been listed at number 22 in The Sunday Times Best Companies Top 100, to be the number 1 recruitment company to work for in the regional list is simply overwhelming. 

I am so proud of the commitment and drive that the team have shown throughout this pivotal period in our growth. To be listed in the esteemed company of the region’s very best employers cements our place as an exceptional place to work. We can’t wait to see what else this team can achieve in 2019”.
