Eagle - great to work for.

Eagle Radio is celebrating after being judged the best company to work for in the UK.

The radio station beat hundreds of other companies to grab the number one spot in the top hundred list, revealed by The Sunday Times this weekend. Independent inspectors have spent the last few months scrutinising bosses and staff at its studios in Guildford along with it`s fifteen sister stations across the UK. All are owned by independent radio operator UKRD, which operates stations from Cornwall to Sunderland in addition to more than forty websites.

In addition to examining the range of employee benefits and training programmes, staff at Eagle Radio were asked to fill in anonymous questionnaires about their life at work, broken down in seventy different questions. The outstanding results saw the company judged outstanding on almost every key indicator used by judges. In addition to being ranked first overall, the company also topped tables for Managers who Listen, Staff who are Least Bored at Work, the Most Stimulating Place to Work and for staff that love working for the company.

Managing Director Paul Marcus said, “This is an immense achievement for Eagle Radio and also for Surrey and North-Hampshire. Thanks to the dedication of our staff we have come out above well established household names such as Office Angels, Beaverbrooks and Virgin Money. Part of this is undoubtedly attributable to the relationship that we have with our community, listeners and clients. Among the initiatives the radio station has been involved in over the last twelve months have been a charity Radiothon to celebrate Chase Hospice`s 10th Birthday, the recent Toast of surrey Business Awards and the station`s annual Christmas toy appeal”

Eagle radio and UKRD are virtually unique in making the company culture and core values the most important factor of the business. There is a specific “fun budget” per member of staff. Last year activities included days out sailing, theatre trips and clay pigeon shooting. Teams are encouraged to offer their ideas and opinions on the way the business is run.

Having previously ranked twenty-seventh in last year’s Best Small Companies to Work For list, a recent acquisition of new radio stations pushed it into the medium category. It entered at number one at the first time of asking.
