The 2022 UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing list was launched on 17 February by Great Place to Work® UK, recognising Xledger among 250 ranked organisations. Our commitment to create and maintain a people-first culture has resulted in a number of other recognitions including “Best Place to Work” at the BristolLive Business Awards 2021, UK’s Best Workplaces™ in Tech 2021, and Employer of Year award 2021.
To determine the UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing list, Great Place to Work’s culture experts analysed thousands of employee surveys, assessing people’s holistic experiences of wellbeing at work by asking employees to comment on how their company supports their:
- Work-life balance
- Sense of fulfilment
- Job satisfaction
- Psychological safety
- and financial security.
Evaluations also included an assessment of how well the organisation was able to deliver consistency of their employee experience across all departments and seniority levels.
Here are some of the initiatives that we put in place to support employee wellbeing:
- Outstanding office environment, with a bespoke office including Bristol’s largest roof terrace, a BBQ, a games area, and gym equipped with Peloton equipment for staff use
- A core hours and flexible working policy, giving staff more autonomy over when and where they work
- Monthly birthday drinks socials, as well as regular lunches, including a welcome lunch for each new employee
- Summer and Christmas parties, at which family members are welcome
- Monthly CEO awards
- Option to join the company health insurance scheme
“There’s a feeling of togetherness here at Xledger. We’re all one big family and there’s always a listening ear for anyone who needs to talk. And thanks to the buddy programme Xledger runs, there’s an opportunity for all employees to express how they feel in confidence to a colleague.” Said Opeyemi Oladimeji, Campaign Manager.
“Being better for people is better for business, especially in tough times,” explained Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work® UK. “When employees feel genuinely cared for, their loyalty, engagement and productivity improve. Happier people also become brand advocates for the business and will often go the extra mile to provide a positive experience for their clients and customers. We’re delighted to launch our first-ever UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing list in 2022, shining a light on the 250 companies who have succeeded in ensuring staff experience high levels of wellbeing across the organisation. Hopefully this recognition and acknowledgement will inspire more workplaces to do the same in years to come.”
