A PROPERTY group based in Bromsgrove has been named fourth in a list of the Top 100 Best Companies to work for in the UK.

Churchill Retirement Living, which has its regional office on Buntsford Drive, achieved it's highest-ever position in the list compiled by the Sunday Times.

It is the seventh year running the company has been recognised in the honours.

Spencer McCarthy, chairman and chief executive officer of Churchill Retirement Living, said: “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.

"The engagement of staff and the support from managers is a major factor in the way we do business. The culture of any company is its lifeblood, and I believe that happy and motivated staff are the key to Churchill's continued success.”

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, my company, personal growth, and giving something back. In addition to the staff survey each company is judged on policies, processes and facilities.

The winners were announced at a gala dinner in London on Thursday, February 22.
