Curtins named as one of the UK’s best companies to work for
We’re delighted that for a fourth year in a row, we have been named as one of the best companies to work for in the UK in a leading workplace study published by the Sunday Times.
The Sunday Times Best Companies to Work For List is one of the most credible and high-profile compilations of its type in the UK, and to be included once again is excellent.
Released annually, the list remains the most respected and accurate engagement survey in the UK. It recognises the organisations who go above and beyond to boost employee engagement and create an exceptional, inspiring culture. The list is compiled using data gathered through employee surveys, the results of which are meticulously analysed to uncover how employees feel and, more importantly, why they feel that way.
CEO, Rob Melling comments, “I am so very proud that Curtins has been listed in the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work for.
“Helping our staff to achieve the right work/life balance, whilst providing suitable training and development opportunities to help them fulfil their potential, is fundamental to how we come together as a successful business.
“We want them to know that they are part of a business that listens and responds to them, and aims to support not only their professional development, but their families and home life during their career with us. From structured training programmes such as Step Ahead, through company lodges which are free to all staff to use, to enhanced maternity and paternity benefits, we are shaping the future of Curtins through our dedication to people.
“Everyone in our team should be proud of achievement and their contributions to our vibrant and cohesive workplace.”
We celebrated this achievement just days after discovering that we had also been awarded Investors in People Platinum accreditation. The IIP Platinum accreditation is the highest accolade that can be achieved against the Investors in People Standard and is currently held by fewer than 1% of IIP accredited organisations.
We are immensely proud to be recognised, once again, for our commitment to staff engagement, welfare and development.
