Two Weeks To Apply For Sunday Times ‘100 Best Companies To Work For’


There are now two weeks left to apply for the Sunday Times Best Companies to Work For 2016 list.

Best Companies, who handles the list, is trying to encourage businesses of all shapes and sizes to register for the list this year, to make the list more diverse and celebrate those who haven’t previously been recognised.

The List is based on detailed feedback from employee surveys, analysed by academics at Plymouth University.

The questions are designed to cover all areas of employee happiness and wellbeing.

Previous lists have included companies including McDonald’s, American Express and Zurich.

Last year, the winner of the Best Big Companies category was TGI Friday’s.

The list is handled by Best Companies, a company that has measured how 3m people feel about their employer.

Best Companies Founder and Chief Executive, Jonathan Austin, explained why the list is so prestigious, saying: “Employees who work for a highly-engaged organisation get an organisation they feel proud to work for, managers who are more likely to listen and care for them, leaders who listen to them, more opportunities for personal growth and teams that support each other.

“They are likely to perceive the deal they get from their employer as positive and experience lower levels of stress and a better work-life balance.”

The lists offers opportunities for all organisations over 50 employees, and categories include The 25 Best Big, 100 Best Mid, 100 Best Small and 100 Best Not-For-Profit organisations.

The registration for the list closes on Friday 2nd October.
