Sunday Times places specialist financial services consultancy 27 in 2012 Top 100 list

Capco, a global business and technology consultancy dedicated solely to the financial services industry, today announced that it has been positioned 27th in The Sunday Times ‘100 best companies to work for' annual list for 2012.

Andrew Tarver, Capco Partner and UK CEO said, “As the highest placed financial services consultancy on the list this year, our reputation as a top company to work for precedes us. We strive to stand out in the market as a company that truly values its people and this accolade recognises our efforts as an employer of choice. We are proud of our inclusion. As Capco continues to grow, so will the reasons to work here.”

In addition to being listed by The Sunday Times, Capco has also received Best Companies Accreditation, securing two stars. Each year both projects are based on a rigorous employee survey and a company questionnaire.

Capco’s placement reflects the company’s commitment to developing its employees and maintaining an environment which encourages collaboration and innovation. Education is actively encouraged through formal classroom based training, learning on the job and networking. When asked if their jobs are good for personal growth, staff provided the second best response in the survey, scoring 85%. The senior management team empowers employees at all levels to take ownership for running all the major functions and processes within Capco. This includes being part of strategy development through to driving recruitment, training and building and owning communities.

Praised as an inspirational leader (placing joint 9th in the list), Andrew added, “There is a true entrepreneurial spirit running throughout the company. We operate with minimal hierarchy and encourage all our employees to bring their ideas to the table. This type of initiative fosters teamwork right across the business and brings everyone together to create something great. We will continue to drive innovation across our organisation as we look to attract and retain the best people. From what we have seen, there is no comparable organisation like it in our industry”.

Capco continues to provide intellectually challenging and complex projects for its consultants to work on. 73% of staff surveyed see unlimited opportunities to learn and grow, whilst 83% feel they can make a difference at the company. These are both top five results in The Sunday Times list. Capco recognises and values the differences in its employees and strives to use these assets to develop and strengthen the company’s unique culture. A positive work/life balance for all its employees is also high on the agenda.
