We believe that if you treat people as if they make a difference to the company

The scores and ratings are based on the opinions of employees.

A total of 897 organisations entered the survey with over 250,000 employees being surveyed.

Mark Smith, managing director of The Car Finance Company, which provides financial advice to people with a poor credit rating, said in response to the survey results: ‘Taking part in the Sunday Times Best Company survey has been an invaluable exercise for the Car Finance Company.

‘It’s great to know our employees are proud to work for company and I’m really proud of what we have achieved together.’

The survey is the 15th annual ranking of Britain’s workforce, and an awards ceremony took place at Battersea Evolution in Battersea Park, London.

Mr Smith said: ‘It enables us to explore our unique culture through the eyes of our employees.

‘We believe that if you treat people as if they make a difference to the company, they will make a difference and that is reflected in everything we do.

The company’s human resources manager Andrea Stevens-Hunt said the firm will build on the great result.

She said: ‘It’s great to have the employees confirm 
we are doing lots of the right things.

‘Placing in the top 100 companies to work for sets a great tone for the company going forward.

‘We plan to keep on doing what makes us stand out from the crowd.’

The Car Finance Company was founded in 2007 and has branches throughout England and Wales, with its headquarters being based in Portsmouth.

Online insurance broker Simply Business was ranked the top company to work for.

Its head office is in London.
