Eagle, Pirate and 2BR owner UKRD Group has been accredited by the Best Companies organisation as being a “Three Star Extraordinary” company to work for for the 5th year running.
The company, which was first accredited with the accolade in 2010, will hear next month whether it has also achieved a position in the Sunday Times Top 100 listings, a position it has achieved in each of the last four years and in three of them, taking top slot.
Chief Executive Officer, William Rogers, told RadioToday he was “incredibly proud” of the result. “Like everyone else, we are not perfect, but this is a great result for our teams on the ground and it further emphasises the success of the strong people-focussed culture we have as a business and the level of autonomy that our stations operate with.”
“This is a great start to 2014 and comes on the back of one of the most successful RAJAR quarters we’ve had and many of our stations delivering record local revenue performances,” said Rogers.
“We ended 2013 with the successful culmination of ours and others efforts to halt the absurd premature DAB switchover plans and we begin 2014 with a terrific start with this recognition of our approach as people managers.”
