Welcome to The Sunday Times Best Companies to Work For 2015. This is the annual ranking of the cream of Britain’s happy and motivated workforces. Its appearance each year is now a highly anticipated event in the business calendar.

The methods of data-gathering and analysis employed in the quest to find the country’s Best Companies to Work For mean that the lists are widely acknowledged as the most extensive research into employee engagement carried out in this country. All the scores and ratings that are assessed to compile the lists are based on employee opinions, and each year the questionnaires are revised and updated to reflect current workplace concerns.

More than 1,050 businesses and organisations registered to take part in our four surveys. The leading 325 are recognised in four lists.

The 100 Best Companies to Work For are firms in the 250-3,500 employee range.

The 25 Best Big Companies to Work For, each have 3,500-plus in the workforce.

SMEs (50 to 250 staff) are assessed in The Sunday Times 100 Best Small Companies to Work For.

Public-sector bodies, charities and housing associations are recognised in 100 Best Not-for-Profit Organisations to Work For.

All these lists will be available to view at any time at http://www.thesundaytimes.co.uk/best100companies.

Congratulations to all the organisations in this year’s lists.
