Churchill Retirement Living has been named in the Top 100 Best Companies to work for in the UK by the Sunday Times, achieving its highest ever position of 13th place.
The retirement housebuilder achieved 3 Star accreditation from Best Companies, the top accolade for excellence in employee engagement, recognising the company as being an ‘extraordinary place to work’.
This is the sixth time Churchill Retirement Living has been named in a Top 100 listing, having recently moved up into the Mid Size Companies category, competing against companies with up to 3,500 employees. Churchill was the only housebuilder to feature on the list.
Spencer McCarthy, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Churchill Retirement Living, said: “I’ve always had the philosophy that if you treat people well, and help them feel a true connection with the business, you get a lot more from them. The culture of any company is its lifeblood, and I believe that happy and motivated staff are the key to Churchill’s success.
“To be recognised once again as one of the UK’s Top 100 companies to work for is a fantastic accolade and something every single member of the team can be proud of. For our employees to be so engaged and supportive of our management is a major factor in Churchill’s ability to continue growing, and indeed for every individual who works here to keep growing with us.”
The Sunday Times Best Companies survey has been produced and published annually since 2001 to measure and acknowledge excellence in workplace engagement. It includes an extensive staff survey with questions measuring eight equally weighted workplace “factors” including leadership, my manager, my team, wellbeing, fair deal and giving something back. In addition to the staff survey each company is judged on policies, processes and facilities.
