Fun and caring environment gets Rackspace on top of the employer list

Rackspace (http://www.rackspace.co.uk/), a leading provider of hosted IT services, today announces it has been voted in the top 25 Best Place To Work in the UK, in the Best Mid-sized Companies category of the prestigious Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For 2008 Awards.

Rackspace was the highest ranking IT Service Company in the listing and accredited with two stars denoting an ‘outstanding' company to work for.
Doug Loewe, Managing Director, EMEA, comments, "This is a major achievement for us and we are truly delighted. What makes this accolade even more precious is that these results are based on direct feedback from our employees. It validates our focus on people and demonstrates that we are indeed listening to our employees, nurturing their talent and more importantly, making them feel valued and trusted. We are very proud of our extremely motivated, involved and dedicated work force and there is no doubt that each and every one of our ‘Rackers' contributes to the continuing success of Rackspace."
In last year's Sunday Times Best Companies to Work For Awards, Rackspace was named the 33rd Best Place to Work in the UK within the Best Small-sized Company category.

These listings are based on an employee survey, which revealed that Rackspace has created a fun and caring environment that nurtures individual talent: 85 per cent of employees would strongly recommend working for the company; 82 per cent love working for them; and 85 per cent are proud to work for Rackspace.
Furthermore, 85 per cent of employees believe that the experience gained at Rackspace is valuable for their future - the fourth best positive score for this statement across all companies surveyed. In addition, 85 per cent of employees believe that they make a valuable contribution to the success of the organisation, making it the third highest positive score for this statement.
