If you think your organisation has what it takes to be honored on the 2015 "Best Places to Work in Community Pharmacy" list…or if you simply want to learn more about this project…we invite you to explore this website.

The "Best Places to Work in Community Pharmacy" programme is managed by the Best Companies Group. Participation in this programme is free.*

The programme...

  • ... is about finding and celebrating the best companies to work for in community pharmacy; it is not about exposing the worst!
  • ... is carried out by independently of C+D under a strict confidentiality agreement – so while C+D will see employers’ rankings we will not see any individual responses

Why your company should register

  • It’s free!
  • It’s a chance to support a positive initiative celebrating community pharmacy as a career
  • An opportunity to promote your benefits as an employer against an independent benchmark
  • The option to purchase a benchmarking report to gain further details of your performance as an employer against others in the market, and (anonymised) employee comments

To take part, employers will need to:

  • Directly employ 15 or more permanent employees in the UK
