Bluestones Group is delighted to have secured a two-star Best Companies rating for the second year running. The award this year is part of a trio of employee engagement awards which also includes Bluestones Group being recognised as both a Top 40 Recruitment Business to Work For and one of the UK’s 100 Best Mid-Size Companies to Work For 2021.

The Group and its portfolio of businesses that operate predominantly in the recruitment sector undertook the Best Companies survey, despite the ongoing pandemic and lockdowns, as employee engagement was understood to be as important as ever, particularly with the majority of the business working remotely.

Bluestones Group CEO, Steve Pendergast commented,

Securing a two-star rating for the second year running, particularly as we go through the COVID-19 pandemic and battle the various organisational challenges that involves, is a significant achievement for us. It underlines the investment and support we have provided to our employees during this difficult period and it’s pleasing to see we’ve been able to sustain our two-star rating.

Bluestones Investment Group operates a diversified brand portfolio across 19 locations throughout the UK, structured around six core divisions. It secured a two-star Best Companies award in 2020 and offers an equity-ownership joint venture model via its investments. Through its proven approach to identifying opportunities and investing in its chosen sectors, the business has weathered the pandemic well and is emerging from this latest lockdown ready to capitalise on this new funding facility and drive further sustained growth.
