The New World Trading Company (NWTC) has been awarded a place in The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies 2017, as the 10th best organisation to work for in the UK.
The latest accolade for NWTC, which currently operates 15 pubs across the country, is based upon employees’ responses to the Sunday Times survey describing their level of happiness and job satisfaction.
Chief executive Chris Hill said the top ten ranking is down to the strong leadership across the business married with an innovate and fun development program for every member of staff.
“I am extremely proud of how much NWTC has grown over the last 12 months, not just with the increased number of sites but also from an operations perspective,” Chris said. “We still pride ourselves on having talented management but also that each employee knows they are a crucial part of the company’s success.
“New World Trading Company is all about the people and as we continue to grow as a business this will remain an important focus. Good people are the success of a business. The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to work for is a perfect example of this.”
The company plans to open new sites in Reading, Didsbury and Birmingham by summer 2017, which will bring an additional 200 jobs across the group increasing the overall team to 1200.
As the employee numbers continue to grow so does the focus on staff development. The company’s engagement scheme Tribes, brings together employees from every site into one of six Tribe teams, with the aim to develop their communication skills and team spirit. The scheme has already received high praise across the industry and is a contributing factor for the high positioning in The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies award.
