The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies To Work For 2009

Mishcon de Reya is delighted to be one of only 58 organisations ranked in the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies To Work For list in both 2008 and 2009!

Despite the challenges facing all businesses in the current climate, competition for a place in the top 100 intensified this year, with 383 organisations registering to participate (72 more than in 2008). A staggering 42 organisations that featured on the list in 2008 were not ranked for 2009.

Richard Caseby, Managing Editor of The Sunday Times said “It takes a brave Chief Executive to subject a business to scrutiny by an outside organisation and a national newspaper. But all our winning companies embrace openness and honesty from shopfloor to boardroom”. “I offer congratulations to all the organisations that have made our lists this year. You have every reason to be very proud.”
