Six firms make The Sunday Times top ten

Six law firms were among The Sunday Times top-100 UK employers

CMS Cameron McKenna, DLA, Eversheds, Osborne Clarke, Simmons & Simmons and Wragge & Co all figured in the survey. The list was topped by Asda and Microsoft.

The Sunday Times‘ Department of Trade & Industry-sponsored survey is in its second year and three of the law firms also featured in last year’s top 100. Wragge & Co was fourteenth in 2000 and nineteenth this year; DLA was 31st last year and sixteenth this year and Simmons & Simmons was 48th last year and 24th this year.

Around 1,300 companies were invited to apply and 249 participated. The survey was based primarily on workforce surveys that canvassed more than 21,000 employees.

Wragges HR director Pat Southern said: “It’s not just about benefits, its making sure people feel part of this organisation.”
