London North Eastern Railway (LNER) has been named as a UK top employer for another year by the Top Employers Institute.

The award recognises LNER for its excellent work in areas including employee health and wellbeing, work environment and performance development.

Top Employer status demonstrates LNER’s commitment and passion for creating a better world of work which is achieved by developing effective experiences through authentic people practices, policies and truly understanding each and every employee’s journey.

Karen Lewis, LNER People Director, said: “At LNER we recognise that our people are the beating heart of our organisation. Receiving the Top Employer award for another year is testament to our commitment and genuine passion for providing the very best experience for every member of our team. We begin and end by creating an adaptive, inclusive and authentic culture that both supports and challenges our people at every stage of their LNER career journey"

“We also know that our people want to work in an organisation that has a positive impact on the local community, which is why we are proud of all that has been achieved over the last year by our LNER Reserves, who have gone above and beyond to help those in need throughout the pandemic.”

The Top Employer Institute is the global authority on recognising excellence in people practices, certifying organisations based on the participation and results of their HR Best Practices Survey.

Top Employers Institute CEO David Plink says: “Despite the challenging year we have experienced, which has certainly made an impact on organisations around the globe, LNER has continued to demonstrate the power of putting their people first in the workplace. We are proud to share this year’s announcement and congratulate LNER on their certification as a Top Employer.”
