Trust,engagement and leadership are key to creating a great  

employer,business and brand



LONDON, UK – Leading FMCG recruitment firm New Chapter Consulting was named by Great Place to Work® as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces in the Small category (organisations with 20-49 employees) in their annual Best Workplaces ranking announced at a gala dinner on 27th April.


Ranked 5th, and jumping 7 spots from last year’s result (12th) this is the second consecutive year that New Chapter has achieved this honour which recognises the company as having a high trust, high engagement workplace culture.


The methodology behind this list and our success is one of the most rigorous available and uniquely comprises both an employee survey and an audit into our organisation’s management and HR practices. The award recognises the strength of our leadership and the range of innovative, creative and effective HR policies we have which creates our workplace culture.


Adrian Dalby, Managing Director of New Chapter Consulting said; ‘Being ranked on the best places to work list for the second year in a row is of great significance to us and a source of great pride. I am especially delighted that this year we’ve made the top 5. Not only does it demonstrate that our strategy and culture is recognised and supported by our people, it confirms that our approach – to put our people at the heart of our business – is appreciated and embraced. We’re delighted that our people have rated the business so highly but ultimately we’re proud of the people we have working for us, because they have made the business what it is today.’


Dalby goes on to say; ‘We believe we have made it onto the ranking because of the following:

Our people: We put them first, we celebrate them and we believe they love what they do. We acknowledge the part we play in the lives of our people and we support them as they grow and develop.

Our culture: Our culture is reflective of the great people we have working for us. We foster a culture of collaboration, respect and integrity but we also have fun and enjoy what we do and office politics are thin on the ground.

Our values: Our values aren’t just words - they are the core of our business. By living these values daily, and by measuring ourselves against them, we ensure that all interactions with our key stakeholder communities represent the very best the industry has to offer.’


Tom O’Byrne, Great Place to Work® CEO said: ‘We are delighted to see New Chapter Consulting on our Best Workplaces list once again this year. It is a validation of the strength of their leadership and their commitment to creating the kind of culture where employees enjoy coming to work and want to do their best. The hallmark of a great workplace like New Chapter Consulting is that their policies and practices are designed around the employee; this employee focus helps attract and retain the talent essential for driving and sustaining competitive performance.’
