Lexington debuts in Best Small Companies to Work For List

02 March 2009 by

Contract caterer Lexington has been named as one of The Sunday Times's Best 100 Small Companies to Work For 2009 - the only hospitality operator to make the list.

Lexington made its debut at 53 in the list of the best 100 companies, which this year had 565 entries. The top 100 list is based on the views of more than 32,000 employees.

Mike Sunley, managing director of Lexington Catering, told Caterersearch that the team was delighted to receive the recognition.

"It had been an ambition we had held from the day we started Lexington seven years ago and was the inspiration for a number of our team training and retention initiatives," he said.

"Some of these, such as giving everyone a day off for their birthday and Baby Gap vouchers for all new parents, even came from sharing ideas with previous Best Companies winners."

Companies in the list are scored against five categories: Leadership, wellbeing, belonging, giving back and personal growth, which leads to an ultimate score and position in the top 100.

The 100 Best Companies to Work For, aimed at larger employers, will be published in The Sunday Times Magazine next Sunday (8 March).
