As a business, First Response Finance epitomise the old saying that money doesn’t bring you happiness.

For the seventh year in a row First Response, ran by CEO Don Brough, have been voted amongst ‘The Sunday Times Best Companies to Work for’, for a mid-sized business.

And it’s the second year in a row the business, based in Beeston, has made the lists’ top 10 after finishing in ninth place.

First Response have gained recognition for their high satisfaction rate amongst it’s 270 employees as well as it’s unusual office perks; including free monthly massages, stand up desks and perhaps most importantly almost no overtime.

Their core message is one of a business that makes not only the satisfaction of it’s customers its most important objective but also of its staff, with profits being secondary to this.

What we like most about First Response is that they operate with strong values, making them an extremely personable and engaging brand in a market often dominated by the very opposite.

By making the happiness of its staff and customers its most paramount mission statement, they have created a positive face of the business that has won them national acclaim and recognition.

A great all-round ethical business – that has given itself a great deal of positive PR without even trying.
