The Entertainer features in The Sunday Times Best 100 Companies to work for

Published on: 2nd March 2020

The retailer features in the Sunday Times list for the 4th time. 

The ranking was awarded following a Best Companies Employee Engagement Questionnaire that was undertaken towards the end of last year. The survey reviews eight engagement factors for employees including how they feel about their personal growth, team, wellbeing and the company in general. The answers generate a BCI (Best Company Index) score for companies before placing them in the overall list of best mid companies to work for.

The Entertainer offers employees a competitive holiday allowance, a strong maternity leave offering and a designated social space called The Lunchbox, where staff can relax and enjoy lunch together. In addition, the company has extended stress and resilience training to managers at Head Office to help build awareness and give managers more capacity to deal with emotional illness and mental health issues.

In a comment to employees, Gary Grant, founder and executive chairman said, “We continue to be incredibly proud of you, while never taking your commitment and loyalty for granted. Have confidence that we will continue to listen to your challenges and ideas, and we are always working hard to continue to make this a great place to work.”
