Starwood and Brookwood Partnership make Sunday's Times Best Companies to Work list

Six hospitality employers have been placed in this year's Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For list.

Luxury operator Starwood Central London Hotels came in at 71 on the list of the top 100 companies (for those with 250 to 4,999 employees). It has 555 staff at three hotels in the capital with average staff turnover of 16% - at least half the industry average and significantly lower than for many hospitality employers.

CatererBest Places to Work in Hospitality Winner winner - was a new entry in the list at 81. The contract caterer has 457 staff and employee turnover of just 15%.

Brookwood joint founder and managing partner, Sue Parfett, said: "Brookwood are delighted to have achieved this award but equally happy that contract catering has been recognised within the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies To Work For listing."

Revolution vodka bar owner Inventive Leisure placed at 82 in the list of the best 100 businesses to work for.

In the list of 20 best large companies (5,000 employees up), hotel giant Marriott was at 14 with Butlins owner Bourne Leisure just one place behind.

The award comes just a year after Bourne was forced to pay £1m compensation to staff after a court ruled that deductions for gas and electricity they used when living on holiday sites was illegal.
