One star is first class, two stars are outstanding and three stars are extraordinary.

Jamie Waller said We are absolutely delighted to be listed in the Times Top 100 and achieve our Two Star status, I am proud to be MD of such a company and pleased that the views of our employees reflect this. We had 74% positivity amongst our workforce, with our staff saying that they are paid reasonable wages in line with their responsibilities and that their home/work balance is good. We do promote a Blackberry ban at weekends. To achieve this on our first year of entering is a great accolade for the company.
