HLM Architects is one of a handful of architecture practices to make the Sunday Times Top 100 Best Companies to Work for 2019 list.  It has also retained its ‘Two Star’ accreditation status, given to organisations that make an ‘outstanding’ commitment to workplace engagement.

Karen Mosley, Managing Director of HLM Architects, said: “This is a fantastic achievement for the whole practice and benchmarks us against all types of companies UK-wide, not just those in our sector.

“In today’s society it’s common for individuals to have many competing demands in their lives and work-life balance is important. Our aim is to always do what we possibly can to promote wellbeing, engagement, personal growth and inclusivity. We work with a ‘one-team’ culture across our studios, have an Academy to help individuals progress and develop new skills, offer agile working befitting a modern workforce, and give support at every level.”

Jonathan Austin, Founder and CEO, Best Companies said “I would like to congratulate HLM Architects on their achievement of a Two Star Accreditation status and being named as one of the UK’s Best Companies to Work for. Best Companies have been producing the Accreditation standard since 2006 to acknowledge excellence in the workplace. We are proud that organisations like HLM Architects focus on their employees and have been rewarded with an engaged workforce who tell us that they’re a best company to work for.”
