The results are in! And whilst it may be 'unbelievable Jeff', Slough, for the third year running has been voted the best place to work in the UK.
Now having previously worked in Slough myself, I can honestly say I see arguments for and against this bold statement. But with some of the largest businesses in the UK basing themselves out of this extraordinary town, it is a business hub and one with good connections, just off the M4 and a stone's throw away from Royal Windsor.
It seems that being associated with 'The Office' and Ali G (who convinced the government to demolish Slough in order to save Staines) has done the town no harm.
As well as Telefonica, AkzoNobel and Reckitt Benckiser being based there, Slough is also home to Burger King, 'The Home of the Whopper'. If these huge companies deem it good enough for them, I suppose it can't be all that bad after all?
