Herefordshire and Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce has been selected as one of The Sunday Times Top 100 Best Not-for-Profit Organisations to Work for 2019.

The Times Top 100 rewards businesses that have exceptional investment in their employees.

The local Chamber of Commerce is the only accredited chamber in the UK to feature on the illustrious list for 2019 - and it is the second year running that Herefordshire and Worcestershire chamber has featured in the list.

The chamber was also named as a finalist in the British Chambers of Commerce Business Awards for Chamber of the Year 2018 and retained its Gold status through the Investors in People accreditation.

Chief Executive Sharon Smith said: “I am delighted that the Chamber has been recognised on a national scale, as it highlights how hard-working the team is in supporting the local business communities across the two counties.

“Whilst the award is a reflection of the high level of support offered internally by the Chamber, it also extends to that of our membership and the conscientious work each department provides to ensuring businesses in the region continue to grow and flourish.”

Dawn Hardman, Director of HR, said: “I am very proud that the Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce has once again been recognised as a Times Top 100 company.

"We have worked hard to create and sustain a culture which places staff engagement at the top of the HR agenda. This award recognises the contribution and commitment from everyone in the organisation and we are looking forward to celebrating our success.”
