Asda has been named as the UK’s happiest workplace.

A survey of employee attitudes and opinions published today by the Financial Times ranks the supermarket chain top of the list of ‘50 best workplaces in the UK’.

Marks and Spencer was the only other multiple retailer on the list at number 28.

Alcoholic drinks group Bacardi-Martini based in Southampton was ranked ninth, while consumer products group Procter & Gamble in Weybridge came in at number 34.

Asda and Bacardi-Martini were also Britain’s only representatives in the FT‘s list of ‘100 best workplaces in the EU’.
