SweetTree ranked 35 in Sunday Times ‘Best Companies’ listing
SweetTree is incredibly proud to have been highlighted as a leading UK employer, after being named the 35th best company to work for by the Sunday Times.
Now in its 16th year, the Sunday Times Best Companies league table recognises ‘the cream of Britain’s happy and motivated workforces’. SweetTree has been ranked 35th in the 250 to 5,000 employees category, beating off stiff competition from over 1,000 businesses and organisations that were put forward for this year’s list.
All the rankings are based entirely on employee feedback and factors looked at include leadership and management, wellbeing, personal growth, pay and benefits. Survey results revealed that 85% of employees believe that they benefit personally from the training provided through the SweetTree Care Training Academy, ranking the company 2nd overall in this category. This is the second time SweetTree has featured in the league, with the company being ranked 18th in 2012.
Jonathan Austin, CEO & Founder of Best Companies said: “This year it is encouraging to see that more and more organisations are recognising the value of employee engagement and are willing to benchmark themselves against the best to ensure they are offering their employees the best possible experience. Organisations that have achieved Accreditation have continued to focus on their employees and have been rewarded with engaged workforces who tell us that these are great places to work.”
Barry Sweetbaum, SweetTree’s managing director, commented: “Since the company was founded in 2002 we have focused on providing the highest quality care possible for all our clients. At the heart of this has been a commitment to recruiting the best carers, who are skilled and passionate about what they do.
“We invest heavily in the ongoing training and development of all team members and through the SweetTree Training Academy, provide industry-leading training programmes that aim to help all our staff to realise their full potential.”
He added: “Demand for our specialist home care services – both in London and Richmond – continues to grow, so we are always keen to hear from carers who may be looking to join a company that truly values their professional development.”
