A Preston firm is better to work for than Google, Apple or Facebook in the UK.


Homeserve, who employ around 500 people in the city and have offices in Fulwood, has been rated on employment website Glassdoor in the top three companies in the country.

Only Expedia and ARM Holdings are rated higher in the study of businesses employing more than 1,000 staff.

Chief marketing officer for Homeserve Greg Reed said: “For us at HomeServe, being named by Glassdoor as one of the top three best places to work in the UK is really special.

“Over the last three years, we have been on an incredible journey and have worked tirelessly to create an exceptional culture, one which is based on a really simple philosophy: you take care of your People, they will take care of your Customers and the rest will take care of itself. Best of all, it’s a culture that every single person in our company is proud to be a part of.”

HomeServe’s ranking is based on independent feedback directly from their employees and puts them above Google, John Lewis, Apple, Unilever and Rolls Royce in this year’s list of the nation’s best companies.
