Pirate a top place to work


Pirate FM has been named one of the best places to work, after parent company UKRD was awarded three stars in the Best Companies Accreditation 2010.

All staff were asked to complete confidential questionnaires, while suppliers and clients were asked for their experiences and ‘mystery shoppers’ were sent in to test customer service. The result is that it is one of just 50 companies in the whole of the UK to be given the top accolade in 2010.

Managing director, Beverley Warne said: “It is fantastic that independent inspectors have judged us to be among the best in the business. I’d like to say a massive well done to my team.”

Jonathan Austin, chief executive of the Best Companies Organisation, congratulated Pirate FM and said: “An engaged workforce is essential as organisations move out of the recession and into a more stable economic situation. Organisations that have kept on engaging their staff and making sure they are involved in the business will be in a good position for the future and should be congratulated for their efforts.”
