Best Companies to Work For 2013

11 February 2013

We are delighted to be sponsoring, for the fourth year running, this year’s ‘Best for Giving Something Back’ Award at The Sunday Times ‘Best Companies to Work For’ Award Ceremony later this month.

This is the 13th year of The Sunday Times Best Companies Awards and being a best company goes beyond the bottom line.  It’s about excelling in every area throughout the workplace and an organisation’s commitment to its most important assets – its workforce.

Focusing on employees brings real benefits such as, improved workplace engagement, better staff retention, reduced recruitment costs and greater financial performance.

The Awards are judged in four categories, the 20 Best Big Companies to Work For — for businesses with more than 5,000 staff, the 100 Best Companies to Work For — for medium-sized firms of 250 to 4,999 employees,  the 100 Best Small Companies to Work For — aimed at small and medium-sized enterprises with between 50 and 249 workers and the’ Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work For’.

Peter O’Hara, Managing Director of Workplace Giving UK comments; ‘We are thrilled to be sponsoring the Best for Giving Something Back Award  again  this year. We help organisations to successfully engage their workforce in supporting good causes from pay and understand that it takes innovation, creativity and strong employee engagement to make any CSR campaign successful.’

In this current climate we hope that everyone in work can do their bit and act alongside their colleagues to make a real difference to those who are less fortunate.”

The Award ceremonies are being held on Wednesday 27th February and Thursday 28th February and we will let you know who the winners after this point.  Good Luck to everyone that has entered.
