Punchline's 'Top 100' magazine out next week!

The eagerly-anticipated next Punchline magazine comes out next week in which we reveal Gloucestershire's 100 Biggest Employers.

Punchline's dedicated team of deliverers will be pounding the streets of Gloucestershire from next Tuesday, dropping off copies of the free magazine to about 13,000 businesses across the county.

The magazine is distributed to trading estates, high streets, schools and businesses of all shapes and sizes, whether they're based in Tewkesbury, Chipping Campden, Stroud or all corners of Gloucestershire.

It will also be available in all of the county's Growth Hubs so if you can't get a copy elsewhere, you should be able to pick up one there.

The magazine features all kinds of business stories, many celebrating the success of the Gloucestershire businesses community. There are also sections including farming, engineering and charity, as well as a What's On section highlighting more than 40 events happening around the county between now and Christmas.

But the centrepiece of the magazine is the list of Gloucestershire's 100 Biggest Employers, ranked by the number of people they have working for them in the county.

Some of the biggest employers may be quite predictable but there are a few surprise entries. A few companies have dropped off the list since the 2021 magazine while others have climbed the list considerably.

At a time when businesses generally are under the cosh from all sides, this list is a celebration of skill, innovation, resilience and flippin' hard work.

From manufacturing to engineering, construction, energy, financial services and dozens of other business types, the list provides a comprehensive snapshot of Gloucestershire's big hitters.

Punchline editor Mark Owen said: "I'm really proud of this magazine. It's one of our most ambitious to date. It's got news, spotlight, commercial property and the Top 100 itself is jam-packed with some of the biggest and best companies in the county. It's got success stories and debate and we're highlighting the cost of living crisis and the cost of doing business crisis."

"It's been a labour of love but I'm proud of my team for putting it together and I hope everyone enjoys reading it."

Mark thanked the magazine's three main sponsors, First Base , Swann Financial Consultancy  and Lister Unified Communications 

The magazine will be available via the Punchline website in a few weeks' time.

No one knows what the next 12 months are going to bring, but you can be sure of one thing. Punchline will bring you news of all the ups and downs in the Gloucestershire business world, whether you're a 'Top 100' business or an SME. It could be a bumpy ride, but we're with you all the way.
