UKRD group tops ‘100 Best Companies’ poll

British media company the UKRD group has been named as the top company in the UK to work for by the Sunday Times.

It is the third time the company has topped the list from the newspaper, which features the top 100 companies in the country. It is also the second year running that the company’s chief executive, William Rogers, was also honoured as ‘Sunday Times Best Leader’ for a mid-sized company in the awards.

Commenting on the awards, Rogers told radiotoday.co.uk: “It’s a real tribute to all our managers and teams who have built a truly remarkable company in which to work, one which places our values based culture at the heart of everything we do and are.”

Other companies to feature at the top of the list include the Save Britain Money Group, TGI Fridays, DRL, the Lindum Group and Hawksmoor, which provides catering jobs in London.

There were also many new entries to the list, including nursery company The Childbase Partnership, Explore Learning, Redgate Software and the Markerstudy Group.

The awards were handed out last night in a ceremony at The Battersea Arena in London and were hosted by the BBCs Kate Silverton. Companies were judged on categories such as leadership, wellbeing, giving something back, personal growth and getting a fair deal, according to thesundaytimes.co.uk.
