Together named in best companies to work for list

Together has been named as one of the UK's best 100 mid-size companies to work for.

The specialist lender entered the Sunday Times Best 100 Companies to Work For survey for the first time and ended up being ranked at 34.

Together also received a special award for ‘Giving Something Back’ in the mid-size category for its commitment to corporate social responsibility.

It achieved ninth place for its charity efforts and 10th place for community.

Mike McTighe, group chairman at Together, said that he was delighted that it had been recognised as one of the UK’s best companies to work for.

“Together is a very special place to work, with a unique and very positive culture created by our founder and embodied by all of our colleagues.

“This culture is at the heart of our ability to attract and retain great people, with over 200 new colleagues joining us in the last 18 months.

“It has also driven our strong growth, with all of our colleagues sharing in Together’s identity and playing their part in our continued success.

“That’s something that has been acknowledged by our inclusion here in the top 100 and is an achievement we can be very proud of.”

The Sunday Times’ annual survey draws on the views of 441,713 employees on areas such as leadership, wellbeing, giving something back, personal growth and getting a fair deal.

In total, 798 organisations took part in the survey, which is now in its 18th year.

Kevin Fisher, HR director at Together, added: “It’s essential for us that our colleagues feel valued and that they’re part of something exciting here at Together, so I’m absolutely thrilled with the results of the survey and want to thank everyone who works here for making this happen.

 “Our colleagues are also really passionate in their support of our partner charities, our community, and the environment, and bring their wide-ranging skill sets to help us give something back, so we’re especially proud to have received further recognition for this with the special award, which is thanks to them.”
