Howdens, the UK’s number one trade kitchen supplier, has appeared in the top 5 ‘Best Big Companies to Work For’ league table for Q2. 

Over 65% of Howdens’ 11,000 employees took part in the Best Companies engagement survey in March. Howdens’ final place in the 2022 list will be confirmed later this year by organiser Best Companies. Howdens last participated in the survey in 2019, achieving 14th position in the 2020 Best Big Companies to Work For list. 

Andrew Livingston, Chief Executive Officer, Howdens, said: “To be included in the top 5 Best Companies rankings is a fantastic result and a testament to the unique culture that all Howdens’ employees help to create.

 “To achieve such consistently high scores demonstrates how much we care and invest in our people. We value the feedback the survey provides and it enables us to focus on the areas where we can get even better. “

As part of the process, Howdens has also retained its 2-star accreditation awarded by Best Companies in recognition of its ‘outstanding’ commitment to employee engagement, benchmarked against hundreds of other companies in the UK.
