Britain's Most Admired By Sector: Support services

Serco slips from fourth to 12th overall, but stays top of a strong sector.

Last Updated: 09 Oct 2013

1 Serco 66.2
2 Capita 63.7
3 Babcock International 58.7
4 Aggreko 58.1
5 Bunzl 57.4

Serco wins half of its new bids, and 90% of rebids, and has an operational record that's second to none. Capita waves goodbye to the overall top 10: it was named preferred bidder to run the NHS Choices website, but was also responsible for NHS staff documents found lying in the street in March. Babcock International, a new entry in Most Admired at 68th, will be training the UK's military engineers for the next 30 years, having signed a £3bn joint- venture contract with Carillion. The Beijing Olympics helped buoy demand for Aggreko's power generators, as did America's hurricane season.
