HomeLet, as part of the Barbon Insurance Group, is celebrating being named one of the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For 2019, marking the second year the business has received the accolade and seeing us rise 41 places in the list from 87 to 46.
The accolade is arguably one of the highest achievements in the business landscape and HomeLet is one of only two companies from Lincolnshire to make the list.
Martin Totty, chief executive of HomeLet, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to be listed as one of the UK’s top employers for a second year running, and with our improved ranking on the list seeing us in the top fifty. We’re proud to operate from the historic city of Lincoln, so to be named one of Lincoln’s top employers serves as a tribute to how hard everyone in the team works to create a positive workplace for all.
“We pride ourselves on offering the very best for our colleagues. We employee energetic and enthusiastic people, and encourage everyone to bring their personality to work. Despite being one of Lincoln’s largest private employers, we still retain a real family feel. We have a great culture, and a series of programmes to help our colleagues become the best they can be – both personally and professionally. Promoting a healthy work life balance is important to HomeLet as a company, and our commitment to our colleagues is mirrored by their commitment to providing the very best for our customers.
“We are incredibly proud of our team and the work they do supporting letting agents, landlords and tenants around the country every day. Everyone in the leadership team would like to thank our colleagues for taking time to provide their feedback on the company and workplace.”

The Top 100 list is determined by eight factors of workplace engagement and relies on confidential honest and unbiased feedback from colleagues across a number of criteria covering everything from wellbeing to development opportunities.
HomeLet is the UK’s largest tenant referencing and specialist lettings insurance company, employing more than 350 staff. It also produces the HomeLet Rental Index, a survey that provides expert and accurate data for the average prices of rent all over the UK on a monthly basis.
To mark the achievement, we will be celebrating with all of our colleagues by holding a ‘Best Companies Day’ event on 1 March.
