CHL Mortgages in top 20 best companies
In the first year it has ever entered the Awards, CHL came 19th out of 571 companies in The UK’s 100 Best Small Companies to work for category. It is the highest-placed mortgage lender and it believes its top positioning is testament to the efforts and enthusiasm of all its staff.
The Sunday Times entry for CHL said that, ‘CHL cares for its 112 employees at work and in their own family lives’, acknowledging that this has been achieved in a particularly difficult market – mortgage lending.
The Sunday Times highlighted the fact that CHL’s staff defined its values and culture last year with the vision of, ‘A Sustainable and Well Run Mortgage Business that I can be proud to work for’. All employees have a substantial work and benefits package including private healthcare, childcare vouchers, life assurance, optional dental cover and an employee assistance programme which provides a free confidential ‘help line’ covering a range of problems for staff and their families.
Commenting, Bob Young, managing director of CHL Mortgages, said: “This is a fantastic achievement for the staff at CHL who deserve recognition for reaching the top 20 out of a huge field of nearly 600 companies and to be the top mortgage lender in this category. This result has only been achieved by the efforts and enthusiasm of everyone who works at CHL.”
