YPO achieves place on Sunday Times 100 list

By Heidi Winter, Communications Assistant

YPO has been ranked in The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work for, retaining their place as a UK Best Not-for-Profit Organisation to Work for and obtaining a one-star accreditation for 2020.

YPO climbed 13 places from last year, coming in 66th place.

The ranking is based upon the b-Heard survey that Best Companies run each year. It’s a confidential survey sent out to employees from organisations who register to the Best Companies list. Respondents are given the option answer questions anonymously relating to factors such as their wellbeing, manager and overall engagement towards the business. Best Companies receive the results and correlate them together to establish the rankings of the awards.

According to Best Companies, achieving a one-star accreditation is a ‘significant achievement that shows an organisation is taking workplace engagement seriously.’ It also signifies ‘very good levels of workplace engagement’.

YPO’s managing director, Simon Hill said “It’s with great pleasure to see that YPO are continuing to excel and improve. This wonderful achievement recognises our commitment to employee engagement and how we value our employees.”

Best Companies founder and CEO, Johnathan Austin said “I would like to congratulate YPO on achieving a One Star Accreditation and being names as one of the UK’s Best Companies to Work for. Best Companies has been acknowledging excellence in the workplace since 2006 when we launched our Michelin style accreditation standard. We are proud to work with organisations like YPO who focus on their people and as such have been rewarded with an engaged workforce who tell us that they’re a best company to work for.”
