Las Iguanas joins Sunday Times' 100 Best Companies

The restaurant chain was ranked 26th best company to work for in 2019.

Las Iguanas also announced that it has achieved a Best Companies 3-star accreditation, recognising extraordinary levels of employee engagement.

The chain was awarded its high Best Companies index score from the Best Companies survey which measures how engaged people are at work and how they feel about their employer.

Mos Shamel, Managing Director, said: “We’re delighted to have been recognised in this year’s 100 Best Companies. We invest heavily in our people and are seeing the brand thrive as a result, contradicting the current trading environment. We’re excited to be opening new restaurants this year starting with Bracknell in March and our continued growth will offer even more opportunities for our team to develop and progress as well as attracting fantastic people to join us.”

“Everyone has put in such an amazing effort to make this business a differentiated and exciting experience for our guests, a great place to come to work every day and somewhere to build a brilliant career. This achievement is all about celebrating that effort and our remarkable people.”

Among Las Iguanas’ initiatives to engage and develop its staff are its clear development ladder and modular training system, incentive champions, an annual award ceremony, community engagement and a programme offering the opportunity to win travel to exotic locations like Cuba, Mexico, and Brazil.
