Cable and satellite programmer UKTV is celebrating being in The Sunday Times 100 best companies to work for list for – thus becoming the first and only TV broadcaster to have achieved entry into the list which also features companies such as Edelman, OVO Energy and Hawksmoor.
Inclusion in the top 100 list is determined by the results of a staff engagement survey produced and published by employee engagement specialists Best Companies. Hundreds of businesses take part in the survey each year which reveals how employees really perceive their work environment. The responses are then collated to produce an overall engagement score for the organisation. This year, UKTV has been awarded a two-star accreditation from Best Companies, building on its Ones to Watch accreditation in 2015.
UKTV’s CEO Darren Childs commented: “Everybody at UKTV has been working really hard to change how TV feels for the better: more engaged, more inclusive and more diverse. This award reflects that huge achievement in our success and growth, and whilst every department in the company wins many awards for their fantastic work, this is the first time everybody has won an award for making UKTV a great place to do great work.”
