Glassdoor has rated HomeServe, which employs around 500 people at its Fulwood headquarters, as the fourth best in the country.
The home assistance provider scored 4.2 out of five in the survey, behind American Express, car dealers Lookers and travel website Expedia who were ranked top.
Chief executive of Homeserve Membership Greg Reed said: “Making HomeServe a great place to work year after year and ensuring that our People feel engaged to make a difference in our Customers’ lives is a huge part of who we are. To appear in the top four of Glassdoor’s list for the second consecutive year is a sign that we are getting it right.
“Our People are right at the heart of everything we do. If we take care of our People, they take care of the Customers and the rest takes care of itself. That’s why we strive to fulfil our ambition of being one of the best places to work in the UK.”

The findings come from the website Glassdoor which asks employees to rate their employers.
For a firm to be considered in this year’s rankings at least 50 employees needed to have rated the company.

UK country manager at Glassdoor David Whitby said: “Companies are realising that you can get more out of your workforce if you create an environment where people feel it is ok to take time out and be flexible with the working week.
“It’s not about leaving the office early, it’s about integrating work and lifestyle. At the end of the day, employers that trust their staff to do their job to the best of their ability, and recognise that everyone has commitments and interests outside the office, will create more loyalty.”
