Companiions has been selected for the Impact Fifty Award
Companiions has been recognised as one of the most impactful companies to work for and awarded the Impact Fifty Award 2023. Impact Fifty recognises only 50 companies for their commitment to creating a workplace environment where all employees feel they are making a genuine impact on an important cause.
Impact Fifty is the latest series by Hyer, deep diving into the world of impact and beyond. Exploring the most meaningful places to work and going behind the scenes to meet the most defining companies.
Companiions is a technology-enabled service that provides a simple and trusted way for people to arrange in-person, on-demand support and companionship for themselves or a loved one. It is staggering to learn that, here, in the UK there are 17 million people who currently juggle their work with every-day responsibilities such as childcare and support to elder or unwell relatives. This inevitably results in absenteeism and attrition, costing UK businesses £18 billion a year.
Companiions ease this added burden of responsibility and offers peace of mind to so many of those that are struggling and feeling overstretched. It enables them to remain independent, productive, and, crucially, stay at work. Companiions has established a new category of essential support services whilst also solving important social challenges like gender inequality, loneliness, isolation & mental health. Launched fully at the start of 2022, Companiions has already gained almost 10,000 customers and is now set to become the world's largest companionship marketplace.
