The announcement of The Sunday Times 100 Best Small Companies to Work For is one of the highlights of the business calendar. The awards are considered the definitive list of happy, motivated teams in Britain. With stiff competition and so many companies applying for this year’s awards, we are hugely proud of our performance, our people, and this unique achievement.
Ten consecutive years in the listing is incredibly rare across all sectors, particularly as the scoring is based on detailed staff feedback, and unprecedented for a property developer.
It is another standout achievement following recognition by the British Safety Council for two consecutive years (2014, 2015) as the UK’s Number One Company for Health and Safety, across all sectors (99.93% score); three consecutive years as Developer of the Year (up to 1,000 homes) at the Property Week RESI Awards (2013, 2014, 2015); and the Evening Standard Best London Home Award (2015).
As People Director Hilary Wells says, "The last ten years have seen Mount Anvil double our workforce and, financially, deliver ten-fold growth. That is down to our people – 93% of who are shareholders. They drive the value. That’s why we work so hard to find, grow and keep the best people. This tenth year as one of the 100 Best Small Companies to Work For is a recognition of their immense work and success.”
As well as placing at #31 in this year’s listing, we were commended for our decade in the top 100 and also received a special award, for ‘Giving Something Back’, in recognition of our continued commitment to sharing our success with London’s communities. For instance through our ground-breaking partnership with the Evening Standard: The Estate We’re In.
Killian Hurley, Chief Executive, said: “By consistently focusing on our people, for instance through our award-winning approach to health and safety, encouraging the leaders of tomorrow, and enabling everyone to share in our growth, Mount Anvil has gone from strength to strength. It’s proof that engaged, positive, proactive people deliver superior customer experience and excellent financial results.”
