LUU wins top 20 place in 'Sunday Times Best Companies' list

Leeds University Union (LUU) has been named the 17th best not-for-profit organisation to work for in the UK by The Sunday Times Best 100 Companies List.

LUU was presented with its award at a prestigious ceremony at Battersea Evolution in London.

LUU's Chief Executive Aidan Grills said, "Our position in The Sunday Times List demonstrates the progress that we have made within LUU over the two years since we launched our latest ambitious strategic plan.  I am very aware of the vital role that our staff play in our achievements and their happiness is fundamental to ensuring that we deliver excellent services to our members.  I'm excited about how we take this success and build upon it, to ensure that LUU continues to be a place where people really love to work."

LUU's report included comments such as:

"Employees find their managers open and honest and say they care about team members as individuals" and "Feedback sessions are often held in the style of a cafe, offering workers a deal they can't refuse: we give you biscuits, you give us ideas!" 

Organisers of the initiative describe what being part of this celebrated list means: "Being a 'Best Place to Work' takes a deep-rooted commitment to being the best you can be in every area of the workplace and supporting the day to day working lives of your workforce."

LUU employs 435 people from Leeds and surrounding areas, and last year coordinated 19,000 student volunteer hours in the community.
