UK Power Networks has been named as one of the best large companies to work for in the country for the third year running.
The company, which is responsible for the network delivering electricity supplies to homes and businesses across East Anglia, London and the South East, remains the only utility firm to feature in the Sunday Times Top 30 Best Big Companies to Work For list.
The rankings are based on an employee survey reflecting the views of staff on topics ranging from company leadership and pay and benefits to community involvement and employee wellbeing.
Chris Degg, director of HR at UK Power Networks, said: “We are of course once again delighted and very proud to be included on this prestigious list.
“We believe that when our staff feel positive about their job and UK Power Networks and can ‘buy in’ to what we are aiming to achieve, they are much more likely to go out of their way to perform to their full potential and deliver a first-class experience to our customers.
