Bauder named in 'UK's 100 Best Small Companies to Work For'

Bauder is Awarded 24th Place in the Category for Small Companies.

Each year The Sunday Times celebrates the best small, mid-size and big workplaces in the UK. In yesterday's 2010 listings, published on 28th February, Bauder Ltd was named and awarded 24th place in the category for Small Companies. This is the 7th year of the awards with over 500 small firms taking part; and every year the prestige of this list builds as it becomes the last word in staff engagement and outstanding working practices.

Bauder is one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of waterproofing membranes and green roof components and supplies the construction industry from its UK base in Ipswich.  With over 150 years of experience and expertise in the roofing industry, Bauder is widely recognised for quality of service, having a diverse portfolio of solutions and product innovation.

In all 37,597 employees from the 571 companies were surveyed based on a rigorous methodology which identifies workplace performance and best practice according to eight key factors. These factors are particularly significant as they are defined through the results from the survey process, and therefore by employees themselves, as critical factors in workplace engagement.

The survey of Bauder staff, carried out by Best Companies for The Sunday Times revealed that managing director, Andrew Mackenzie inspires his staff (87%), while managers truly live the firm’s values (88%) and listen rather than tell people what to do (80%). Staff say they are proud to work for the company (90%).

Andrew Mackenzie, managing director of Bauder Ltd said "We are proud to be named within the Sunday Times Best 100 Companies initiative and thoroughly delighted to be ranked 24th. This is real testament to everybody in the Company and the way we all get on and work so well together."

The list of the 100 top companies in each size category is compiled by Best Companies and published by The Sunday Times.
