"Our people make us who we are. At Pedder, our staff don’t just work for the business, the business has to work for them too," says the estate agency, which is based in south-east London.

It believes its success depends on its staff being happy, motivated and effective. It takes pride in the way it manages, upskills and supports employees through tutorship, mentorship, incentive schemes and regular review processes to enable career progression.

The family-run company offers a supportive, inclusive and friendly culture from the top down, along with regular staff feedback and evaluation to allow the business to improve constantly, interlinked offices enabling the family culture to prevail and like-minded colleagues who value service as much as they value culture and fun.

The agency recruits people with high potential and develops them into "Pedder people". It supports staff to study for professional qualifications and each member of the team is given an annual and quarterly development review, which sets goals. The reviews are not just about professional performance, but provide the chance for a personal check-in, too.

Over the past 10 years, the Pedder Group has helped more than 120,000 people across south-east London with their property needs. The company has a host of complementary operating companies serving different sectors across the property industry.

The residential sales business was formed in 1977 after the acquisition of five loss-making offices from the Wates Group. Further services offered by the estate agent include development consultancy, finance, new homes, chartered surveyors, property management and commercial.

I am happy with the balance between my work and home life

Working from home is difficult in the property industry, but the company has adapted some roles so that staff can do so where possible. The agency has added comfortable break-out areas in each office, so staff can get away from their desks. It has also introduced early finishes on Fridays.

People in my team go out of their way to help me
