Arrow is delighted to announce that is has been named the winner of the Employer Brand of the Year Awards at the Employee Engagement Awards 2018. This is the company’s third award in the last 12 months in areas covering Hosted Telephony, Business Energy and now Leadership.

The Employee Engagement Awards honours those organisations that put workforce engagement at the heart of their business strategy. This year’s winners demonstrate how far-reaching employee engagement is today. They span manufacturing, banking, IT, pharmaceuticals, retail, the NHS, service companies, transport and the sporting world.

The winners were announced last week at a sold-out ceremony at the iconic Wembley Stadium, and were presented in association with People Insight.

Rapid growth meant Arrow needed a new platform to continue its expansion whilst maintaining superior customer service and a motivated, loyal workforce. This led to the birth of #ARROWVISION, an innovative change management project in which all staff help to shape and implement.

A brand identity was created so it became something everyone could associate with and provide longevity; the pop-art visuals helped to make it fun and appealing.

Arrow’s CEO, Chris Russell said: “Silo-based organisations do not work in today’s world and this initiative gave me the opportunity to combine the collective power of 130 brains to solve problems and create a company that is a great and rewarding place to work.”

The best endorsements of #ARROWVISION have been achieving engagement scores of over 90 per cent in the annual employee engagement surveys and the sharp reduction in attrition which Arrow estimates saved around £200,000 in recruitment, training and induction costs in 2016 alone.

Employee Engagement Awards Founder and CEO Matt Manners said: “Congratulations to all our winners. This year the entries really have proven the transformational value that focusing on the employee experience can deliver. Not only do engaged employees help develop a clear competitive advantage but will also help their organisations to navigate a world facing continuous change.”
