The Employers-of-CHOICE Service recognises great employers

The Employers-of-CHOICE (EOC) service is operated by The Training Foundation based at the University of Warwick Science Park, England. The Foundation was awarded a Queen's Award for Innovation in 2005: it is focused on helping organisations improve their performance through people.  

The aim is to recognise great employers who people clearly value working for. It is NOT a competition; we do not believe there should be a limit to the number of great employers, nor that it's possible to objectively rank one against another. 

The criteria applied in such 'Best Company' competitions may be flawed: Goldman Sachs was awarded Best Company to Work For in a national newspaper competition, yet less than a year later the Company laid off 000's of employees amid criticism of its ethics.


 The EOC-Survey   


The EOC-survey is at the heart of the EOC service. It comprises twelve questions which succinctly identify whether people do feel they are working in a high-trust environment for an employer of choice.

The Survey is founded on Six Principles, the key drivers of engagement. All good employers will likely already be broadly aligned with these principles and hence should achieve a qualifying score.

The survey is conducted anonymously with a section of employees (see the registration page for details).
