Catena Media has topped Business Leaders Malta’s list of best places to work for the year 2019-2020 from research conducted on employee satisfaction and engagement by BLM market research arm Esprimi.

The annual award recognises organisations for their outstanding performance on employee satisfaction and engagement and is presented to the highest scoring companies on the Employee’s Voice. As part of the Employee’s Voice process, participating companies must complete a strict research process and meet the required high standard in their respective categories (based on company size) in order to achieve winning status.

The Employee’s Voice research tool recognises leading Malta-based employers by assessing and quantifying the attitudes and perceptions that employees have across nine crucial domains. The domains explore various aspects including the level of care, recognition, communication and team cohesiveness, leadership effectiveness, focus on performance management, and commitment to employee development and company culture.

This year Esprimi has teamed up with Richmond Foundation to introduce a new domain on mental health to give the study a more holistic approach. The tool also uses an internationally validated set of questions to assess employee engagement – allowing for unparalleled benchmarking.

In addition to the award, the winning companies are also presented with an Employer of Choice certificate. BLM’s Employer of Choice certificate recognises top performing companies for their outstanding employee experience and amazing work culture and is awarded to winning companies as well as organisations who meet Esprimi’s benchmark criteria as a result of exceptionally high employee engagement, satisfaction and response rate scores. Atlas, the Malta Information Technology Association (MITA), and the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) are the organisations who other than the winners have received the Employer of Choice certificate.

BLM’s Esprimi is the only local registered certification provider honouring employers for their outstanding people practices and company cultures in Malta. Years of experience analysing the local landscape and working with leading companies across the island makes its recognition process one of the most robust in the local arena, equipping employers with utmost precision and unsurpassed accuracy as well as the chance to communicate their brilliance to the world with confidence.
