Peel L&P reaches 'Best Companies' top employer lists
Peel L&P has been recognised as a top national and regional employer in three of this year’s Best Companies Lists and has retained its two-star accreditation for 2021.
The regeneration business has reached The Top 100 Best Large Companies To Work For, the North West’s Top 100 Companies To Work for list as well as placing third in the Top 5 UK-wide Property Sector employers.
The rating, voted on by employees, means the north west-based business demonstrates outstanding levels of employee engagement and is well on its way to achieving the top three-star accreditation.
Peel L&P has been keeping its people connected through the pandemic with a range of virtual events from DJ sets, quizzes, murder mysteries, fitness classes, Time 2 Talk days, coffee mornings and employee appreciation days.
It also issued a wellbeing-focused newsletter every Wednesday packed full of tips and activities during lockdown to help its people and their families to stay healthy and supported.
Over the past 12 months Peel L&P has adapted the business to become more flexible and has created new working environments that embrace health and wellbeing, sustainability and collaboration to suit the needs of a new virtual world.
Steven Underwood, Chief Executive of Peel L&P, said: “It has been an incredibly challenging year as we all adapted to new ways of living and working and I have been hugely impressed by the resilience and commitment of our people who have shown their unwavering support for the business during this time.
“Awards and recognition always mean a lot when they’re based on feedback from our people but this year, these results mean so much more given how much we’ve accomplished as a team during the year of the pandemic. We’re proud to support our people and to be recognised as a top national and regional employer.”
Carrie Westwell, Director of People and Culture at Peel L&P added: “It’s very special to be recognised as a company with outstanding engagement, especially as the decision is based on our people’s views. Peel L&P is a unique and forward-thinking organisation built on a long heritage and family values. Our people are what make Peel L&P what it is today and help us realise possibility in everything we do. I am so proud that we continue to be one of the top 100 Best Companies to work for in 2021 and look forward to continuing to invest in and help our teams realise their possibility now and in the future.”
87% of Peel L&P team members completed this year’s survey.
Peel L&P’s extensive portfolio spans retail, leisure, residential, energy and includes some of the biggest transformational projects in the UK such as MediaCityUK, a £5bn Liverpool Waters development and Wirral Waters, a scheme to regenerate a 500-acre former dockland site.
It’s been a great year for the company’s charitable and community endeavours too with Peel L&P providing the land and vision for the new Embassy Village homelessness project in Manchester. And in Salford, The Peel Group is a founding partner of RHS Bridgewater to help improve the health, wellbeing and education of local people and school children through the Peel Learning Garden based at the new world-class horticultural attraction.
Peel L&P is also working with Therme Group to bring the world’s most advanced wellbeing resort to TraffordCity and in Liverpool, Everton FC’s plans have the green light to be built at its new iconic waterfront stadium at Liverpool Waters.
Employees are encouraged to take a day out of work to take part in volunteering and the company runs various charity events when Covid-restrictions allow.
We’re incredibly proud of our track record in giving something back to the communities in which we work.
This takes many forms across the business from the land we give to make special projects happen, to the support our people give to charity and the community. Our giving keeps
on growing and we hope you’ll join us in continuing this long-standing commitment as part of our Peel L&P family.
We also give all of our people a paid day a year to volunteer.
“Our people are the heart of the company and we’ll now be reviewing their feedback so we can continue to retain and attract the best talent.”
