BE Offices has been voted as one of the “Best Places to Work in Property”
BE scored highly in employee satisfaction owing to its commitment to ensuring staff enjoy their work along with the company’s emphasis on health and well-being and generous paid leave.
Compiled by leading industry magazine Property Week the survey selected 32 real estate companies from across Britain as the best places to work in the sector, BE Offices being chosen as one of them.The magazine commissioned independent analysts to survey both employees and employers on the benefits of working for their respective organisations. It is thought to be the first survey of its kind focussing purely on the property sector and demonstrates that real estate is both a rewarding and well rewarded industry to work in.
Perks for working at BE include a day’s leave on an employee’s birthday to spend with family and three days paid leave working with a charity of their choice.
Additionally, a key part of BE’s Corporate Social Responsibility programme is an annual fully funded two-week long charity trip for two employees. Over the years BE staff have spent time working in a Cambodian orphanage and working with Nepalese street children. This year two lucky staff members spent two weeks in a Thailand elephant and rescue centre.
David Saul, BE’s Managing Director, said: “We are thrilled to be the only business centre operator to be given this accolade. We take the welfare and well-being of our staff very seriously. Our belief is that if we look after our staff then they will look after our clients and in turn give them the service they deserve and expect.”
An example of BE’s attitude to staff well-being is the company’s stop smoking campaign where employees can spend £100 a year on quit-smoking aids and are rewarded with a £100 shopping voucher if they successfully stop smoking for at least six months.
