Management Today recently published their ‘Most Admired Companies List 2021’ which shows how the UK’s leading employers rate their peers.
The corporate reputation survey, conducted by Echo Research, has run for more than 30 years and is one of the most in-depth and best-established measures of corporate reputation in the UK.
We read the list with great interest here at Wavelength and were particularly delighted to see so many members of the Wavelength eco-system making the list. Over 30 clients and partners are named, and we offer our huge congratulations to every organisation that made it onto this prestigious list.
Ferguson plc, a $2.3B value-added distributor in North America, came in 4th place and are a client on Wavelength USA - a programme that’s taken their CEO and many of the Exco inside some of the USA's most admired and innovative organisations.
Abcam, the leading supplier of protein research tools to life scientists, and participants on both our Wavelength Connect and Inspire programmes, came in at number 24. They also achieved a Top 5 position in the Glassdoor Best Places to Work in the UK for the second consecutive year.
Indeed, it’s not just our clients who feature strongly in the list. Our programme partners are there too.
Pets at Home, Page Group, Unilever, Abcam, and John Lewis Partnership have all featured as organisations we admire and visit during our Wavelength Connect and Inspire programmes. This demonstrates not only the great care and diligence we apply when selecting the very best partners for our leadership programmes, but the fact that we choose the highest calibre business leaders for our participants to learn from.
Our Chief Connector Adrian Simpson regularly speaks on the topic of ‘What Makes a High Performing Organisation’ and commented:
"Some of the key traits we look for in a high performing organisation include a clear compelling purpose, great alignment, and, increasingly, a bold stance on innovation."
It’s clear there’s a strong link between Wavelength and many of the UK’s most admired companies in the UK.
If your organisation is looking for leadership development with a difference, chosen by many of the UK’s most admired companies, get in touch today.
