Camelot ranked 35th in The Sunday Times Best 100 Mid Companies 2020
Camelot UK Lotteries Limited (‘Camelot’), operator of The National Lottery, last night placed 35th in The Sunday Times Best 100 Mid Companies 2020. This hard-fought and celebrated list represents the 100 companies in the ‘mid’ category with the highest Best Companies Index scores.
In awarding Camelot its place, Best Companies and The Sunday Times said: “Camelot's primary purpose to "change lives" is double-edged. Life certainly changes for its champagne-popping lottery winners [and] Good Causes receive an average of £30m a week, helping millions more. Nigel Railton, the chief executive, leads the organisation based on sound moral principles and inspires his team. Staff are happy with their work-life balance and feel they can make a valuable contribution to the success of the business.”
Camelot’s CEO Nigel Railton said: “I’m absolutely delighted that Camelot has been recognised as one of the best companies to work for in the UK. I’ve been with Camelot since 1998 and have always known it’s a remarkable place to work. Since being appointed CEO in 2017, and with the help of our fantastic People Team and some great advocates around the business, we’ve worked really hard to make everybody feel truly valued and engaged. We’ve also focused on helping them to fully appreciate that the work they do changes lives in two ways – through the winners that The National Lottery creates, with more than 30 millionaires each month, and the Good Causes that National Lottery players support to the tune of over £30 million each and every week.”
Camelot has been sole operator of The National Lottery since 1994. Under the company’s stewardship, The National Lottery raised more than £40 billion for Good Causes over the last 25 years – 60% more than the most optimistic Treasury forecasts at the time of launch. Camelot employs around 900 people across five sites in the UK, with its head office based in Watford.
To join the ‘mid’ category list, an organisation must employ at least 250 full-time employees and achieve one of the 100 highest Best Companies Index scores in the category. Camelot has been awarded a 3 Star accreditation – which is Best Companies’ highest standard of workplace engagement, representing organisations that truly excel and have ‘extraordinary’ levels of workplace engagement.
