A company which runs a pub in Harpenden has been named in the Sunday Times list of best companies to work for in the UK.
The Peach Pub Company, which runs the White Horse in Redbourn Lane, was named 48th on the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies List.
This is the third year running the company has been placed on the list, based on the opinions of people who work there.
Peach managing director Hamish Stoddart said: “When we started Peach in 2002, we had one pub and a handful of people running it.
“We made a success of that pub but we knew that to build something sustainable long-term, we needed to put our people first and share success with them.
“So we really focused on our teams, investing in training to help people fulfil their potential. We also created a set of principles we work to, such as ‘encouraging individuality’ and ‘serve the good stuff.’”
To form the list, the Sunday Times asks employees questions about training, wellbeing, satisfaction and leadership.
