Business Environment, one of the UK’s foremost serviced office operators, has been named one of the country’s ‘100 Best Small Companies to Work For’ by the Sunday Times for the seventh consecutive year.
In a year which saw hundreds of companies entered, and over 50% new Top 100 entries, the company scooped 77th, making it one of only six companies to make the list seven years running.
David Saul, Business Environment’s managing director, said: “This has always been the most important award to us. If people enjoy working with you, then you know you are doing something right – and you are creating a positive environment which will rub off on your customers.
“I’m hugely proud of this result, and glad that our staff feel valued at this company.”
Some of Business Environment’s more distinctive policies include encouraging all employees to take three days off a year to volunteer for charity, use of gyms, delivering cakes to clients and colleagues each Friday, a stop-smoking initiative, and setting up a “green team”, which ensures all working areas are being as environmentally-friendly as possible.
The Sunday Times 100 Best Small Companies to Work For awards measures excellence across a number of workplace factors including leadership, employee wellbeing, pay and benefits as well as treatment of staff.
