Lime Pictures Unscripted was recently selected as one of the 2020 Best Places to Work for in TV. The list of the Best Places to Work in TV was created by Broadcast and Best Companies Group. Lime Pictures thrives on creating a company where people feel respected and safe to feel themselves.

This survey and award program was designed to identify, recognize and honour the best places of employment in TV, benefiting the TV field, its work force and businesses.

Organizations from across the UK entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in TV. The first part consisted of evaluating each entry by looking at its workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top organizations and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration, survey and analysis process and determined the final rankings.

Sarah Tyekiff, Head of Unscripted said, ‘I am thrilled that Lime has been ranked as the 10th best place to work in the UK. It is a real achievement and shows that all of the policies that have been implemented are having a positive impact on the workplace and the team. From mindfulness meditation sessions, wine and cheese Fridays, Creative Breakfasts and a great sweet bowl, the key thing is actually the team. If we can empower people to be creatively adventurous, celebrate each other’s differences and be proud to call Lime their Employer then we’re on the right track’.
