We are thrilled to announce that Edrington-Beam Suntory UK has been officially recognised as one of the 2020 UK’s Best Workplaces™ with 86% of our people saying that we are a ‘great place to work’.

We were recognised in the medium category (51-250 employees), ranking at #46 – a fantastic achievement for our first full year of participating in the programme.

To determine an organisation’s ranking, Great Place® to Work administers its Trust Index survey® to employees which represents 75% of the final score. The remaining quarter of the score comes from the Culture Audit®, a business-driven questionnaire that uncovers and evaluates the organisation's HR and leadership practices, policies and culture.

Alongside this accolade, we have also been deemed a ‘Centre for Excellence in Wellbeing’, with employee wellbeing, corporate social responsibility and talent management amongst our top-rated categories.

Our managing director, Mark Riley, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be officially named as a ‘great place to work’, particularly as this was only our first full year taking part in the scheme.

“People are our number one priority and understanding the perspective of our employees is key to building a successful workplace environment and a strong, inclusive and high-performing culture.

“We look forward to hopefully climbing up the ranking next year but for now, this is a time for our business to celebrate. While current circumstances are dictating this must be a ‘virtual’ celebration, our resilient culture, steadfast camaraderie and our collective positive attitude are serving us well in these uncertain times.”
