Sykes Holiday Cottages provide self-catering holiday accommodation across the UK and Ireland to a diverse range of customers from the UK and overseas. Sykes started at a kitchen table in Yorkshire nearly 30 years ago and they are now an international business with over 600 colleagues across two continents and ten offices. It's been an incredible journey, but they haven't forgotten their roots - that kitchen table still sits in their head office today. Sykes are an entrepreneurial, fast-paced business with big ambitions. But success isn't just about becoming bigger - it's about becoming better and they have done that by placing employees at the heart of what they do. Their values are the foundation of the business and honest feedback from employees has helped them to drive change and grow and improve as a business. There is a fabulous team culture at Sykes, staff frequently tell them that their amazing colleagues are the best thing about working there. Sykes are big believers that working hard also means playing hard, whether that is at their incredible December conference, at 'bring your dog to work' day or enjoying a free ice cream on a hot summer's day.
