Following a successful rebrand late last year, Nedbank Private Wealth Limited has retained its standing as a top company to work for in The Sunday Times 100 Best Small Companies to Work For 2013. A record 1,300 people attended the award event, hosted by the highly accomplished and versatile BBC journalist, Kate Silverton. Nedbank Private Wealth ranked impressively at number 60 and this is the ninth year running that the company has been recognised in this prestigious list, appearing previously under its former name of Fairbairn Private Bank.
Greg Horton, Nedbank Private Wealth Limited’s managing director, said: “I am delighted to retain our presence on this national listing and understand we are one of only two companies who have remained on the list for nine consecutive years. The listing results from the UK’s largest ever survey into workplace engagement involving almost a quarter of a million employees. I would like to thank all our staff for the amazing energy and effort they have expended throughout what has been an incredible year for the business. A record number of projects have been completed simultaneously and the team effort has been nothing short of breathtaking. They have steered us successfully through a rebrand, a corporate restructure and significant technology enhancements, while also achieving headline profit growth of almost 20%, year on year, in a very difficult economic environment.
“We are immensely proud of our continued recognition on the Best 100 list which reflects our ongoing commitment to the personal development of our people. Our principal aim is to serve our clients better than any other financial services organisation and we know that a loyal and committed workforce is vital to achieve this.”
Each year The Sunday Times and Best Companies celebrate the best workplaces in the UK. Employees within the organisation are surveyed and businesses are judged based on feedback directly from their staff. The survey explores staff perceptions of eight key aspects of the business: wellbeing; personal growth; fair deal; company leadership; employees’ feelings towards their managers, team and company; and what the company gives back to society.
This latest accolade follows a long list of awards for the bank this year, including two global Euromoney Private Banking awards and a Three Star “extraordinary” accreditation* achieved in this year’s UK Best Companies Guide. The Best Companies accreditation incorporates companies of all sizes and industries across the entire UK and Nedbank Private Wealth is one of only 121 companies throughout the UK to have received the maximum Three Star Status.
