Best Companies One To Watch Award

GA Pet Food Partners is proud to have been awarded the Best Companies One To Watch Award. The b-Heard Survey invites our colleagues to score 70 statements about their wellbeing, pay and benefits, personal growth, their team, the leadership and much more. It is scored on a seven-point scale that allows for more nuanced responses than an agree/disagree model or five-point scale. This, combined with Best Companies unique 8-factor model, provides GA with a structured and accurate insight into how our colleagues feel. The b-Heard Survey is strictly confidential, allowing our colleagues to give honest responses without fear of reprisal.

Once the survey is complete, GA receives a Best Companies Index (BCI) score which measures workplace engagement. If the BCI score is high enough, GA earns an accreditation. One to Watch is a special status awarded to organisations where workplace engagement shows promising signs for the future. Achieving a One to Watch status requires a minimum BCI score of 600 and reflects organisations with ‘good’ levels of workplace engagement.
