Churchill Retirement Living staff celebrate their award win

A RETIREMENT homes developer in Ringwood has been ranked number two in The Sunday Times’ top 100 Best Companies To Work For 2019 awards.


Churchill Retirement Living also won a special Wellbeing Award in recognition of its leading approach to looking after its staff’s health and wellbeing.

The company’s regular social events and free health checks were highlighted, along with the confidential colleague support line. Employees are even given a day off on their birthdays.

Chairman and chief executive officer of Churchill, Spencer McCarthy, said: “To be named the second-best company in the country to work for is a fantastic accolade and something every single member of the team can be proud of.

“I’ve always believed in the importance of looking after my team and treating them well, so it was great to have that recognised with a special award for wellbeing. The culture of any company is its lifeblood, and I believe that happy and motivated colleagues are the key to Churchill’s continued success.”

Workplace engagement specialists, Best Companies – the name behind The Sunday Times list – recognised the firm as being an “extraordinary place to work”.

Founder and CEO of Best Companies, Jonathan Austin, said: “I would like to congratulate Spencer, Clinton and the Churchill team on their achievement. Best Companies have been producing the accreditation standard since 2006 to acknowledge excellence in the workplace.

“Organisations like Churchill have continued to focus on their colleagues and have been rewarded with an engaged workforce who tell us that this is a best company to work for.”

The company has appeared in the top 100 on eight previous occasions and also appeared for the fourth time in the Top 100 Best Medium-Sized Companies To Work For. It was once again the only housebuilder to feature on the list.
