Cambridgeshire firms on Sunday Times Best 100 Companies to Work For list
Companies and organisations from across Cambridgeshire feature prominently in the annual Sunday Times Best 100 Companies to Work For list.
Costello Medical retains its place in the 2018 honours list for the best 100 small companies (50-250 staff) to work for. It provides scientific support to the healthcare industry in the analysis, interpretation and communication of clinical and health economic data.
It has grown organically since 2008 to a team of more than 100 based in Station Road, Cambridge, as well as London and Singapore.
CEO Sophie Costello said: “We are absolutely delighted to be included in this list for the second year running.
“Our inclusion is a testament to the fantastic people who work at Costello Medical, whose talent at delivering exceptional quality work and spirit of collaboration shape the company every day, and continue to drive its growth. We look forward to all pulling together throughout 2018 and beyond to ensure the company is a place people enjoy working, and where they can realise their potential.”
In the best mid-size 100 firms (250-3,000 employees), leading law firm Mills & Reeve makes the list for the fifteenth consecutive year. Claire Clarke, managing partner, said: “It’s an amazing testament to our firm that we have secured our place on the list for 15 years running. We work hard to ensure all our people have opportunities to grow and develop, not just in their role, but personally as well.”
It is joined on the list by Wyboston Lakes, Build-a-Bear Workshop and Pure Gym, as well as the accountancy and business advisory firm Price Bailey.
Nadia Khan, human resources partner at Price Bailey, said: “I am really proud to be part of a firm that places its exceptional people and wonderful clients above everything else. Being recognised by The Sunday Times as a Top 100 Company to Work For is testament to this approach.”
Among the 25 top big companies (more than 3,000 staff) to work for are EY, UK Power Networks and Worldpay. In the not-for-profit list of the top 100 employers, the East Anglian Air Ambulance makes its debut appearance.
A total of 799 organisations registered to take part in the survey and the views of 261,559 employees determined the rankings.
