Telephone answering service, Moneypenny, is celebrating after being placed 4th in The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For list.
Along with the placement, Wrexham-based Moneypenny has also been awarded a prestigious three-star accreditation by Best Companies – only given to those companies deemed ‘extraordinary’. It is the second time the company has been placed in the top five, securing a 4th position in 2015, and the fourth time it has received a three-star accreditation.
Joanna Swash, Managing Director at Moneypenny, said:
“We are absolutely thrilled with the result. We always take pride in what we do, but coming in the top five for the second time left us speechless. We are amongst fantastic company again this year and it’s wonderful to see so many businesses taking such care and pride in the welfare of their employees.
This accreditation will once again have a huge positive impact on everyone at Moneypenny. Our business is all about keeping our people happy which in turn keeps our clients happy and it’s this ethos which has resulted in our extraordinary growth. ”
The award adds to what has been an incredible few months for Moneypenny as the company moved into its brand new bespoke office in September last year, which was designed in collaboration with its 500 employees.

“It’s a wonderful feeling to be working for one of the ‘best companies’ in the country. It really is a lovely place to work, especially with our amazing new offices and I know everyone at Moneypenny will be delighted with this year’s award.”
