Welcome to The Sunday Times Best Companies to Work For 2014. This is our 14th annual ranking of the cream of Britain's motivated workforces, and its appearance each year is now a highly anticipated event in the business calendar. It is widely acknowledged as the most searching and extensive research into employee engagement carried out in this country. All the scores and ratings that are assessed to compile the lists are based on employee opinions.

A total of 897 businesses and organisations registered to take part in our four surveys. The leading 325 are recognised in four lists.

You can read about the The Sunday Times 100 Best Small Companies to Work For (SMEs of up to 250 employees), 100 Best Companies to Work For in the 250-4,999 employee range, plus the 25 Best Big Companies to Work For, with 5,000-plus in the workforce.

Today we publish, on all our digital platforms, the pick of the not-for-profits: the public sector bodies, charities and housing associations in 100 Best Not-for-Profit Organisations to Work For.

All these lists will be available to view at any time at http://www.thesundaytimes.co.uk/best100companies and this week on our digital editions for tablets and phones.

Congratulations to all the organisations in this year's lists. From a wide range of sectors, what they have in common is enlightened and forward-looking leaders investing in the wellbeing and motivation of their most valuable assets: their employees.
