HUNTINGDON-based social landlords, the Luminus Group, has slipped down the rankings of the 100 best companies to work for in the UK –but is still in the top 10.

Last year the company retained second place in the best medium sized companies in The Sunday Times rankings. However, Luminus was placed in sixth in the 2012 not-for-profit category.

Luminus was also ranked third of the 45 social landlords in the list.

Chief executive Chan Abraham, who holds The Sunday Times best leader award, said: "We have been repeatedly asked to help other firms to understand how they can be better employers. It is clear that many businesses have taken our suggestions and ideas seriously and have implemented them in their own organisations.

"This has resulted in much higher standards in these places and we are very pleased, since this is a practical out working of our commitment to 'demonstrate a more excellent way of doing business' and to get others to follow."
