We are proud to announce that our UK business has been awarded coveted Great Place to Work certification by the global authority on workplace culture.
Certification acknowledges employers who deliver a consistently positive employee experience. During the certification process, the Great Place to Work team captures valuable feedback using its research-driven Trust Index survey and details the programmes and practises that make workplaces unique.
Commenting on Gleeds’ new accreditation, Kate Williams, UK people director said, “Our survey results were overwhelmingly positive - showing that 90% of our people feel colleagues care about one another, that the business is committed to ensuring everyone is treated fairly, inclusively, and respectfully, and that everyone can be themselves at work. These are just a few of the aspects of our culture that make Gleeds a Great Place to Work. I look forward to continuing our journey to becoming one of the UK’s Best Workplaces.”
Managing director of Gleeds UK, Anthony Cork added, “Our people are our most important asset, so I am thrilled that the effort we devote to improving their experience is paying dividends. It is rewarding to know that we’re creating a workplace where people are made to feel welcome when they join us, and where they feel valued throughout their careers here.”
The results of the Great Place to Work survey reveal that nine out of ten respondents agree they were made to feel welcome when joining Gleeds, while over 90% agree that the business is committed to treating everyone fairly, inclusively, and respectfully. As a result, 87% feel they can be themselves at work and four out of five would consider it a truly Great Place to Work.
