GA Pet Food Partners are proud to be awarded the Best Companies Good To Work For Award

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, team, 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 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.
