Banks Sadler has been listed among the UK's best places to work in this year's Great Place to Work rankings.

The agency ranked 43rd in the medium-sized business category for organisations with 50 to 499 employees. It is the first time Banks Sadler has made the list, which recognises companies with "a high trust, high engagement workplace culture which attracts and retains talent and drives business success."

To attain a place on the list, businesses must achieve a high minimum score in an employee survey which measures trust and engagement in the organisation.

Leigh Jagger, CEO at Banks Sadler, said: "Recruiting and retaining the right team is pivotal to the success of any event management company and time and time again we hear from our clients that it’s our team that really make us stand out from the crowd.

"Achieving a place on the Best Workplace list is great testimony to the fact that our team feel we have the right framework in place not only to attract but also retain the best people in the business. We have worked hard to develop a culture where everyone is encouraged to collaborate, innovate and communicate. 

"We are all delighted to receive this accolade and huge thanks goes out to everyone at Banks Sadler for building and contributing to a culture that has allowed to do so. Big celebrations are planned across the office network later in the week."

This year saw Banks Sadler’s profits rise for the fifth year running, and the agency reported growth in its healthcare division, which moved to larger offices in Windsor following ‘unprecedented growth’ last year.
