Top Employer
CDL retains prestigious certification

8th February 2018

Stockport-based IT company, CDL, has retained its exclusive Top Employers certification, meaning it is officially recognised as one of the best places to work in the UK for a second consecutive year.

The company, ranked 20 in a recent list of the top 100 technology companies in the North, employs nearly 700 people at its technology campus on Kings Reach Road and has long been recognised for its agile and collaborative culture and positive role within the local community. This is exemplified by employee benefits, such as a subsidised restaurant and a varied programme of social events and activities, as well as a firm commitment to supporting local charities, including providing numerous opportunities for volunteering.

The annual, international research, undertaken by the Top Employers Institute, recognises leading employers around the world that provide excellent employee conditions, nurture and develop talent throughout all levels of the organisation and strive to continuously optimise employment practices.

David Plink, CEO for the Top Employers Institute, said: "Our comprehensive research concluded that CDL provides an outstanding employment environment and working conditions, supplemented by a wide range of creative initiatives, from secondary benefits to performance management programmes that are well thought-out and truly aligned with the culture of their company."

Gary Johnson, Managing Director of CDL, commented: "We recognise that optimal employee conditions ensure that people can fully develop, personally and professionally, and achieving this certification for the second consecutive year is a recognition of our continued efforts to provide a great place to work for everyone at CDL."

Crucial to the Top Employers Certification is the completion of a stringent research process, and organisations must meet the required standard to achieve the accreditation. To further reinforce the validity of the process, all answers were independently audited, meaning this research has verified CDL's ability to create excellent conditions for our people.
