SThree has taken the top spot in the Support Services sector of the 2021 Britain’s Most Admired Companies study.
We finished ahead of our competitors in the overall sector rankings, and we're also delighted to have come first in eight of the thirteen key criteria.
Britain’s Most Admired Companies survey has been going for over 30 years and is the longest-running annual survey of corporate reputation in the UK. The results have been published by Management Today for the last 28 years.
The survey measures the reputation of over 250 of the UK’s largest public companies across 27 industry sectors.
Companies evaluate their peers, in each sector, against 13 different criteria. The research acts as a peer-review of corporate reputation, as responses from board-level representatives, analysts and City commentators are all used to tally the final scores and rankings.
Timo Lehne, Interim CEO of SThree said:
“We’re delighted to be recognised for all our hard work, it highlights the continuous progress we are making across the business to ensure SThree is a great place to work. To know this is how we’re perceived by our peers makes this accolade extra special.
“It also shows that we have the right strategy and that our purpose, of bringing skilled people together to build the future, has never felt more relevant.”Find out more and see the full results
