Churchill Retirement Living voted 4th Best Company to Work For in the UK

Our best ever position!

Churchill Retirement Living has been named in the Top 100 Best Companies to work for in the UK by the Sunday Times, achieving its highest ever position of 4th place. The winners were announced at a gala dinner in London on Thursday 22nd February. 

We once again achieved 3 Star accreditation from Best Companies, the top accolade for excellence in employee engagement, recognising the Company as being an ‘extraordinary place to work’.

This is the seventh time Churchill Retirement Living has been named in a Top 100 listing, having firmly established itself in the Mid Size Companies category for the third year running, competing against companies with up to 3,500 employees.

The Top 100 rankings are based on an anonymous company-wide staff survey. Churchill gained its 4th position based on Colleagues’ views, as well as those of an independent judging panel who recognised that care for customers and employees is at the heart of the organisation, as well as a strong sense of family, confidence in the firm’s leadership, and belief that the business is run on sound moral principles.

Spencer McCarthy, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Churchill Retirement Living, said:

I’ve always believed that if you treat people well, and help them feel engaged and connected with the business, you get a lot more from them. My goal is to see every individual who works here keep growing and developing with us.

To be recognised once again as one of the UK’s Top 100 companies to work for is a fantastic accolade and something every single member of the team can be proud of. For our employees to be so engaged and supportive of our management is a major factor in the way we do business. The culture of any company is its lifeblood, and I believe that happy and motivated staff are the key to Churchill’s continued success.


Jonathan Austin, Founder and CEO of Best Companies, said the following about Churchill:

I’d like to congratulate you on achieving 4th position on The 100 Best Companies to Work For 2018 list. You should be extremely proud of your achievement and the fact that your employees feel Churchill Retirement Living is such a great workplace.

The Sunday Times Best Companies survey has been produced and published annually since 2001 to measure and acknowledge excellence in workplace engagement. It includes an extensive staff survey with questions measuring eight equally weighted workplace “factors” including leadership, my manager, my team, wellbeing, fair deal and giving something back. In addition to the staff survey each company is judged on policies, processes and facilities.
