Utility Alliance earned national recognition by being named as one of the Top 100 Companies to Work for in the UK for the second year in February this year.

The honour comes after a long-running campaign which saw staff randomly surveyed by the Best Companies organisation, with all levels of the business coming under the spotlight.

All of the responses were analysed, with businesses given a total score at the end of the process.

The company, which operates from a base in Bold Street and also has branches in Hartlepool and Newcastle, was thrilled to be named in 40th position in a competition which is backed by The Sunday Times.

Daniel Potter, Managing Director at the Sheffield base of Utility Alliance, commented: “Last year we were over the moon to be ranked in 55th place, so it goes without saying there is a sense of pride at having bettered that.

“We have made rapid progress considering we have only been operating for five years.

“Achievements like this would not be possible without the hard work and dedication shown by staff at all levels throughout the business.”

Jonathan Austin, Founder and CEO of Best Companies, said: “I would like to congratulate Utility Alliance on their achievement of a Three-Star Accreditation status and being named as one of the best UK Companies to Work For.

“We are proud that organisations like Utility Alliance focus on their employees and have been rewarded with an engaged workforce who tell us they are the best company to work for.”
