Glassdoor announces top UK places to work in 2019


Glassdoor has announced the winners of its eleventh annual Employees’ Choice Awards, highlighting the best places to work in 2019.

Unlike other lists of this kind, Glassdoor’s awards are based solely on the input of employees who voluntarily provide anonymous feedback about their job, work environment and employer over the past year.

Winners are ranked based on their overall rating achieved during the past year. Ratings are based on a five-point scale: 1.0 = very dissatisfied, 3.0 = OK, 5.0 = very satisfied.

Based on these ratings, the top five UK Best Places to Work in 2018 are:

  • Anglian Water (4.5 rating)
  • Bain & Company (4.5 rating)
  • XPO Logistics (4.5 rating)
  • Bromford (4.5 rating)
  • Salesforce (4.4 rating)

"In today's tight labour market, job seekers are in the driver's seat when it comes to deciding where to work and they want to know the inner workings of a company before accepting a new job. To help people find the best jobs and the best companies, the Glassdoor Employees' Choice Awards recognise employers at the top of their game," said Dr. Andrew Chamberlain, Glassdoor Chief Economist. "For employers, we know that a satisfied and engaged workforce helps drive financial performance. Glassdoor Best Places to Work winners are strategically investing in company culture, career growth opportunities and more, which also serves as a major recruiting advantage."

The 2019 list features employers from a range of diverse industries including technology, consulting, insurance, finance and retail.

Google (No. 13, 4.4), J.P Morgan (No. 30, 4.3) and PWC (No. 45, 4.2) are the only three employers to make the UK list every year (2015-2019).

Employees' Choice Award winners for the 2019 Best Places to Work are determined using Glassdoor's proprietary awards algorithm, and each employer's rating determined based on the quantity, quality and consistency of Glassdoor-approved company reviews submitted by UK-based employees between 23rd October, 2017 and 21st October, 2018. During the year-long eligibility period, employers considered for the large list must have received at least 30 ratings for each of the eight workplace attributes (overall company rating, career opportunities, compensation & benefits, work/life balance, senior management, culture & values, recommend to a friend and six-month business outlook) taken into account as part of the awards algorithm. For reporting simplicity, ratings are displayed to the nearest tenth, though calculations extend beyond the thousandth decimal place to determine final rank order.
