London & Partners, the Mayor’s official promotional company for the city, has risen significantly in a prestigious ranking to be judged one of the best organisations in the United Kingdom to work for.
London & Partners has risen to 44th from 86th place last year in ‘The Sunday Times 100 Best Not for Profit Organisations to Work For 2016’. The company was recognised with a special award for learning and development, and improved its overall score in the leadership and fair deal categories.

“London & Partners was recognised with a special award for learning and development, recognising our commitment to developing the whole person whilst they are with us, even if their career path will eventually lead outside the organisation.”
