Our congratulations and admiration go out to all the award winners of Best Employers Eastern Region 2023.

Logo for Holkham Estates

Best Large Organisation

Holkham is an innovative and people-centric organisation who showed us considerable evidence of how Best Employers is supporting their people strategy. There's a clear correlation between previous results and how they continue to turn the dial by implementing progressive and inclusive initiatives and policies. The evidence they gave us across all three pillars of ESG shows how integral this is to their colleagues, and their ability to retain and attract talent in a rural community.

They combine these with a proactive approach to wellbeing and a commitment to the welfare of their employees.
