Business West named one of Top 100 not-for-profit companies to work for

Business leadership and support organisation, Business West – organiser of the popular Swindon Business Show – has been named as one of the UK’s best employers in the latest annual Sunday Times 100 Best Not for Profit Companies to Work For list.

Business West, the largest business membership organisation in the region – representing and working with 16,000 businesses, providing a range of advice and support services from how to start, develop and grow your business to expanding overseas – appears in the list for the first time and it will find out its exact position at an awards ceremony in London on February 25.

The firm employs around 200 staff at its head office at Leigh Court in Bristol and Park House in Swindon, from where it runs the Swindon & Wiltshire Initiative.

Managing director, Phil Smith, said: “I, and the board of directors, take enormous pride in providing an enjoyable and rewarding environment for all employees of Business West. We feel that to grow a strong successful business, you must ensure job satisfaction across the company.

“To be acknowledged as one of the UK’s best employers with a nationally-recognised achievement makes us incredibly proud and we will continue to strive for excellence in both the work we do and the environment we do it in.”
