Peel L&P rises to number 58 in Sunday Times Top 100 Best Companies list

Regeneration business Peel L&P is one of the country’s best employers, climbing to number 58 in this year’s The Sunday Times Top 100 Best Companies To Work For survey (Best 100 Mid Companies).

The rating, voted on by employees, means the north west-based business demonstrates outstanding levels of employee engagement reaffirmed by another two-star Best Companies accreditation for 2020.

92% of team members completed this year’s survey helping Peel L&P to improve on last year’s 79th position with praise again for its approach to health and wellbeing, personal growth and management.

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 £5.5bn Liverpool Waters development and Wirral Waters, a scheme to regenerate a 500-acre former dockland site.

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 has submitted plans to build its new iconic waterfront stadium at Liverpool Waters.

Peel L&P, which employs 295 people, has undergone an internal and external rebrand the past year with new employee values, employee benefits and more career development opportunities to encourage people to ‘realise their possibility’.

Employees are encouraged to take a day out of work to take part in volunteering and the company runs various charity challenges across the year from Tough Mudder to Three Peaks, raising £82,000 in the past year for a variety of charities.

Over the past 12 months Peel L&P has progressed action plans driven by the feedback from teams, including committing to embracing flexibility which has increased in those working flexibly to 40% across Peel L&P and simplified the process of asking to work flexibly.

Peel L&P has also improved communication with teams around our charity and volunteering work and has seen an improvement in feedback in this area.

As part of its new brand, Peel L&P has also launched a People Promise and its commitment to embedding employee values across the business. More at
