Kantar Worldpanel UK a Sunday Times Best Company!

Leading market research agency, Kantar Worldpanel, is celebrating its listing on the prestigious Sunday Times Best Companies to Work For, for a third year running.

The company, which specialises in consumer and shopper insights and has the largest continuous panel in Great Britain, was listed 81st in the ranking of 100 companies.

Best Companies surveys employees to measure several areas of employee engagement including the leadership team, employee well-being, community involvement, employee personal growth, and day-to-day management. Key to Kantar Worldpanel’s success in this year’s list is that employees have great confidence in the senior management team and feel inspired by Managing Director Tim Kidd who they describe as a ‘bright, caring and engaged leader’. The commitment the business shows to giving back to the local community is also important and 77% of staff think the company has a strong social conscience.

Tim Kidd, managing director at Kantar Worldpanel UK, Ireland and USA, comments: “This recognition is a great achievement. It reflects the exceptionally positive engagement of our employees and also helps in our ambition to be a ‘go to’ employer.

“Our industry is no longer just about providing the data. Clients need analysis, interpretation and strategic guidance to help them grow their business. This requires good people. We have been working hard to make our company a place people really want to work and we’re pleased to see we’re succeeding.”
