Williams & Co is named one of the best places to work in the UK for the second consecutive year
For the second time we have been listed as one of the best companies to work for in the UK by The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work for 2020.
Williams & Co prides itself on three core values: Integrity, Loyalty and Ambition; and these principles are central to working life, alongside the firm’s commitment to never be beaten on service and to constantly raise the bar for customers.
This year 86% of Williams & Co staff participated in the Sunday Times survey and it scored highest for ‘My Team’ and ‘Wellbeing’. This is testament to the company’s drive to ensure it constantly improves its workplace culture and standard of employee wellbeing.
Managing Director, Ray Stafford commented: “Of all the awards and accolades that we’ve been fortunate enough to win over the years, being named as one the top 100 companies to work for is the one of which we’re most proud. It’s a fantastic testament to the work of an amazing group of colleagues.”
According to The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work for 2020: “Williams & Co is a great place to work due to its relaxed culture and family-feeling. They always have a can-do attitude and maintain a positive spirit. The organisation is dedicated to spurring on its employees with commitment and enthusiasm. The combination of great prices and the best products backed-up by exceptional service has catapulted them forwards to become a major regional independent and one of the fastest growing merchants in the UK.”
The London Stock Exchange has also recognised the company no less than 4 times in its flagship ‘1,000 companies to inspire Britain’ and ‘1,000 companies to inspire Europe’. In 2019, the Builders’ Merchants News named Williams & Co as the country’s best Plumbing and Heating Merchant as well as recognising it as offering the Best Customer Service in the industry.
