To determine the UK’s Best Workplaces™ in Tech list, Great Place to Work® analysed anonymous employee survey feedback representing nearly 20,000 employees working in the tech industry across the UK.
Employees responded to over 60 survey questions describing the extent to which their organisation creates a ‘great place to work’ For All™. Eighty-five percent of the evaluation is based on what employees say about their experiences of trust and reaching their full human potential as part of their organisation, no matter who they are or what they do. Great Place to Work® analysed these experiences relative to each organisation’s size, workforce makeup, and what’s typical relative to their industry peers.
The remaining 15%is based on an assessment of all employees’ daily experiences of innovation, the company’s values, and the effectiveness of their leaders, to ensure a consistent employee experience across departments and seniority levels.
To be considered eligible for Best Workplaces™ in Tech recognition, companies first had to meet the Great Place to Work-Certified™ standard of accreditation. Once Certified™, each company undergoes a rigorous assessment of their culture, during which we review any anomalies in survey responses, news, and financial performance of the business to ensure there aren’t any extraordinary reasons to believe we couldn’t trust a company’s survey results.
Companies with 20-50 employees were considered for the Small size category; companies with 51-250 employees were considered for the Medium size category; companies with 251-1000 employees were considered for the Large size category; and companies with 1001+ employees were considered for the Super Large size category.
