UKRD is a first class operator

Commercial radio group UKRD has been awarded three stars in the prestigious Best Companies Accreditation 2010.

In the rigorous selection, companies are rated on their ability to inspire and engage staff, encourage development and make a difference to the area in which they operate.

UKRD, which recently took over The Local Radio Company (TLRC), runs eighteen radio stations across England. Each was minutely examined by a team of independent inspectors, with staff asked to complete a confidential questionnaire and suppliers and clients asked for their experiences. The result is that UKRD is one of just fifty companies in the UK to be given the top accolade in 2010, meaning that it has been judged to be “first class.”

Chief Executive William Rogers said: “The award is testament to our people and the work that they do every day. Commercial radio has not been the easiest of sectors over the last eighteen months, but the achievements of our staff during that period have often been extraordinary.”

Jonathan Austin, Chief Executive of the Best Companies Organisation said, “We would like to congratulate UKRD Group on their outstanding achievement. An engaged workforce is essential as organisations move out of the recession and into a more stable economic situation … UKRD Group that have kept on engaging their staff and making sure they are involved in the business.”

The news comes just a day before UKRD is due to launch a national online auction to raise money for the victims of the Haiti earthquake. ‘Hope for Haiti’ will be promoted both through its own radio stations and others outside its group.
