UK Power Networks named most improved big company to work for
UK Power Networks has been named as the most improved company in the Sunday Times Top 25 Best Big Companies to Work For list.
23rd February 2018 by Networks
The company rose 18 places and won a special award for Best Improver at an awards ceremony in London.
The company, which employs over 6,000 staff and keeps the lights on in homes, schools, hospitals and businesses across London, the East and South East of England, was placed 11th in this year’s Top 25 Best Big Companies to Work For, marking its fourth consecutive year in the list.
UK Power Networks is the only energy company to feature in the list.
The rankings are based on a detailed employee survey of UK Power Networks’ staff about a number of topics ranging from the support the company gives to the communities it serves to staff development and training.
UK Power Networks also scooped the Innovation in Engagement prize at this year’s ceremony for its ‘Your Energy’ health programme, which helps staff focus on their health and well-being.
Andrew Pace, UK Power Networks HR director, said: “We are delighted that our staff have once again rated us among one of Britain’s best big companies to work for.
“When staff feel positive about their job and their employer, they are much more likely to go out of their way to deliver a great service. The health, wellbeing and safety of our staff is very important to us and I’m delighted that our work on these issues in particular was recognised.”
The Sunday Times Top 25 list covers companies employing more than 5,000 employees.
