Best Employer Eastern Region: Silver Accredited Employer

At Smithfield Foods, we recognize that motivated and engaged employees make for a successful organisation. Understanding and taking the time to know how staff feel is an important part of how we can improve our employees’ experience at work.

Smithfield Foods has been part of the BEST Employer East Region initiative since 2014. At the heart of Best Employers is an anonymous survey which gathers employee feedback on everything from organizational culture, to learning and development opportunities. Since 2012 over 33,000 employees in Suffolk Norfolk and Essex have completed the survey; with over 300 organisations taking part in 2023.

We have consistently scored in the top 25% of participating organisations and are pleased to confirm we maintained our Silver accreditation in 2023. This is what the judges said about us:

“Smithfield Foods have made great progress across many areas and we were impressed at the importance that is placed upon the employees voice being heard and acted upon. The attraction, retention and progression of employees is impressive with more than 45% of the current workforce having progressed within the business in some way. Using psychometrics to support individual development and tailoring developments is clearly supporting this approach. Celebrating the success of their people is an important part of what makes Smithfield Foods a good place to work. Their commitment to their local community is evident and we noted the important and positive impact that can be gained from establishing relatively small initiatives, such as using a local social enterprise company for business catering."
