Slotting into the Top 100 Best Companies to Work For at number 45, with a Two Star accreditation which the organisers described as unprecedented for a first attempt.

Now in its 17th year, The Sunday Times Top 100 is an annual ranking and survey of the best of Britain’s employers. Its publication each year is a highly anticipated event and we’re so proud to have been involved.

Hamish, Lee and Jo got together fifteen years ago – set to open one, really great pub. Now, to be recognised as one of the best companies to work for in the whole of the UK is a dream come true.

We’re a great team of like-minded individuals, serving fantastic food and drink with huge enthusiasm, and it’s the team and our teamwork that make it possible for our guests to have a great experience every day in all of the 18 pubs we now have.

We’ve won many awards from within the hospitality world for looking after our people and giving them inspirational training and development opportunities, but getting recognition this time from outside our industry is even more meaningful. It’s tough for a hospitality company where the hours are long and the work is hard to be recognised as a great employer.

It’s a challenge for pubs, too. The great British pub industry will only be saved if we carry on making our pubs fun, exciting places to come to and for our people to work in.

The Sunday Times Top 100 is drawn up after extensive data-gathering and analysis alongside an employee survey of companies operating across all industry sectors.  By asking for the views of the people working for these companies what their employer and workplace is like, the awards get a true picture of which companies, like Peach, are the best to work for.

We’re really proud to be included in the list and to be highlighted as a great employer! And now we’ve got this far it has to be our goal to be even higher up the list next year.

The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies full list is published in The Sunday Times this Sunday, 26th February.
