UKRD celebrating sixth Sunday Times award

UKRD Group has been told this week that it has once again been accredited with an “extraordinary” Three Star Rating for 2015 by the Best Companies organisation and has also been notified that it will definitely have a place on the 2015 Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For listings.

The confirmation came as Chief Executive Officer, William Rogers, wrote to each team across the company confirming that they had had their best ever start to a financial year, “breaking all previous revenue and profit records through the first quarter ending in December 2014.”

“The news of our recognition for the sixth year in a row as an ‘extraordinary’ Three Star company to work for, as rated by the Best Companies organisation, is testament to the fantastic managers and teams we have working right across the company and, whilst we won’t know what position in the Sunday Times 100 Best Company lists we hold until the end of February, it’s great to be told in advance that we’ve gained a top 100 listing for the sixth year in a row.” William told RadioToday.

UKRD has been accredited the Number 1 spot by The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies lists in each of the last four years from 2011 through to 2014, with William himself being given a “Special Award” as the ‘Best Leader’ of a Sunday Times 100 Best Companies mid-sized company for each of the last three years.

“We’ve had a superb start to our trading year,” he said. “Two of our stations, Yorkshire Coast Radio and Wessex FM, appear in the top three local stations with the highest Reach figures in England, our revenues have delivered strong growth right across the portfolio and our profits are seeing very good growth indeed.”

He added: “The local focus is truly paying off and we are seeing the clearest evidence yet that when you deliver truly local radio to an audience that is keen to be served by the kind of committed teams we have in all our stations, the results feed through. Genuinely local commercial radio is a success story and I’m immensely proud that UKRD remains true to the principles of local radio for local people delivered by locally based and focussed teams.”
