London, May 24th, 2021 – Arcadis, the leading global Design & Consultancy organization for natural and built assets, has been named in the top 3 Best Big Companies to work for ranking. With winners assessed across a variety of factors including workplace engagement, leadership, staff well-being, development opportunities, company culture and values, Arcadis’ entry into this prestigious annual list sets it apart as truly going the extra mile to create a thriving workplace environment.

Ranking in #3 place overall, Arcadis’ ‘Best Companies’ accreditation has only been made possible thanks to an outstanding commitment to workplace engagement, a strong wellbeing agenda and a desire to make a difference to society. It is testament to the significant investment Arcadis has made to creating a positive environment in which its people can be their best.

The Best Companies to Work For lists are derived solely from the views of employees. The highly competitive ‘Big Companies’ list spotlights the leading 25 companies in this particular category. To join the list, organisations must employ at least 3,000 full-time employees and have some of the highest Best Companies Index (BCI) scores overall.

Arcadis also made it into nine regional shortlists, achieving #1 place in the London list, #3 place in Wales and #3 place in Yorkshire & The Humber. The company came #2 place in Construction and Engineering’s Best Companies to work for.

Commenting on the results, Mark Cowlard, UK CEO of Arcadis, said:

“I’m extremely proud that we’ve been recognised as one of the UK’s top 3 Big Companies to work for. We constantly strive to improve our employee experience and ‘People First’ culture as we know that an engaged workforce is happier, motivated and more productive. It is tremendous that our people genuinely feel we have an environment at Arcadis that enables them to grow and realise their full potential. Our ‘People First’ approach is all about building something for our people, by our people, and we are committed to attracting the best talent and providing the fantastic opportunities to learn, collaborate and – importantly - work on some very exciting projects."

“Over the last year, we’ve been listening to the needs of our colleagues and have implemented actions and improvements such as strengthening leadership skills and improving our processes to recognise colleagues. Our ethos is all about striving to improve people’s quality of life, and I’m delighted to see this being played out in every aspect of our business.”
