The Sunday Times has published its listing of Best Companies to Work For 2015. This is the 15th annual ranking of the cream of Britain’s happy and motivated workforces, and its appearance each year is now a highly anticipated event in the business calendar.
Remarkably, TGI Friday’s has leapt straight to the top of the Best Big Companies listing, whilst Red carnation Hotels has risen to second place in the 100 Best Companies listing.
The methods of data-gathering and analysis employed in the quest to find the country’s Best Companies to Work For mean that the lists are widely acknowledged as the most extensive research into employee engagement carried out in this country. All the scores and ratings that are assessed to compile the lists are based on employee opinions, and each year the questionnaires are revised and updated to reflect current workplace concerns.
More than 1,050 businesses and organisations registered to take part in the four surveys this year, with the leading 325 recognised in four lists.
First to be published are the 100 Best Companies to Work For in the 250-3,500 employee range, plus the 25 Best Big Companies to Work For, with 3,500-plus in the workforce.
