The Midcounties Co-operative, founder of Co-operative Energy, celebrates 25 best big companies to work for hat trick

Posted on 5 March 2013

The highly competitive Sunday Times 25 Best Big Companies to Work For 2013 has ranked Midcounties Co-operative, parent co-operative of Co-operative Energy, as 13 in the table. It’s the third successive year Midcounties has featured in the coveted list and its highest positioning yet.

This is further recognition for The Midcounties Co-operative, which is the largest independent co-operative businesses in the UK and includes successful subsidiary Co-operative Energy, after it was named as Co-operative of the Year at the Co-operative Awards 2012.

Ben Reid OBE, chief executive of Midcounties, said: “I’m incredibly proud of each and every one of our colleagues who have helped make Midcounties the success that it is.

“To make the Top 25 list for a third time and improve our ranking in such a competitive field is a fantastic achievement and one we are immensely proud of. We will use all of our resources to make sure we continue to improve the engagement with our colleagues as I am sure that will ensure our Society goes from strength to strength.”

Since launching in 2011, Co-operative Energy has gained over 100,000 customers and is Britain’s fastest growing energy supplier, thanks to its simple tariff and competitive pricing.
