The Times Top 100 Best Companies to Work For has been released, and Spencer Ogden has placed in the prestigious list for the second year running. This year 897 organisations vied for a place, but only the leading 325 were recognised across four lists. Spencer Ogden ranked 64th in the Best Small Companies category for 2014.

Based on the same judging criteria Best Companies Ltd has also awarded Spencer Ogden a 3-star accreditation for the second consecutive year too.

David Spencer-Percival, CEO of Spencer Ogden comments: “To be acknowledged by the Sunday Times for a second year in a row is amazing, especially given the speed at which we have grown in the last twelve months."
The evaluation process is in depth and includes analysis of gender splits, staff turnover, training opportunities and wellness programmes. The average age of Spencer Ogden’s 345 workers was found to be 25, while staff turnover was just 11 per cent, far lower than the recruitment industry standard.

There is also huge opportunity for staff to grow within the business, and this was noted by Best Companies.

Spencer Ogden’s industry leading Graduate Academies also received recognition, and The Sunday Times commented that almost half of Spencer Ogden’s current employees joined the company straight out of university. It singled out one former graduate who has already gone on to head a contract team at the Singapore office.

“We were pleased to see the Spencer Ogden Graduate Academies receive a special mention,” says Spencer-Percival. “We put a lot of effort into recruiting and training young graduates; they are the future of our company and of the industry."

The judges were also impressed by Spencer-Ogden’s incentive scheme, which includes an office located on a beach in Ibiza for top performers, dress up days for charity and a unique and modern office environment.
