Rentokil Initial tops league of most popular UK employers

Rentokil Initial is the best company to work for in the UK, according to data released by global job site Indeed.

The UK-based pest control and hygiene firm, which serves customers ranging from multinational companies to homeowners, came top of a ranking of Britain's best employers, based on tens of thousands of reviews written by their staff.

Rentokil came top for its job security and advancement, with staff praising how it promotes from within, the good work-life balance and the company's positive culture. In reviews, staff described having high job satisfaction and doing fulfilling work. The 2018 winner, global tech giant Apple, was in second place.

Bill Richards, UK managing director at Indeed comments: "Britain's job creation boom may be easing off, but it's still very much a jobseeker's market - in which companies have to fight hard to attract the staff they need to grow.

"With private sector employers facing stiff competition for the best talent, many companies realise they need to offer more than just an attractive salary. Other factors can be just as important when it comes to wooing good people.

"Reviews posted this year by tens of thousands of employees demonstrate just how much value they put on a good work-life balance and a positive work culture - and how likely they are to research and consider these factors before deciding to apply."

Rentokil Initial ceo Andy Ransom adds:"Being Indeed's top-rated workplace for the private sector is a tribute to the hard work and commitment of our colleagues. We focus on getting it right for our people and in turn they provide a great service to our customers. We'd be the last to claim that we always get it right but we're committed to the long term investment in our people and their progression and development.

"Our approach is to ensure that we have a culture in place where everyone can develop their career through industry-leading training and be recognised for doing so. In particular, we are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive working environment for all employees by striving to be an organisation that values everyone's talents and abilities."
