Top Employers to work for in the UK 2018


The Top Employers Institute has released its list of Certified UK Top Employers for 2018.

A total of 85 employers have made this year’s list, which were unveiled last week at the Old Billingsgate, in London.   

Starbucks Coffee Company, BlackBerry UK Ltd and SAS were among the 12 organisations that were newly certified, and six organisations have been named a Top Employer for over ten years.

Top Employers certification is awarded to organisations that achieve the highest standards of excellence in the conditions they offer their employees. Following validation and an external audit, performance scores are rated against an international standard.

The annual research, undertaken by the Top Employers Institute, recognises employers around the world by assessing employee offerings across nine categories: talent strategy; workforce planning; onboarding; learning and development; performance management; leadership development; career and succession management, compensation and benefits; and culture.

Alessio Tanganelli, Regional Director UK at the Top Employers Institute, says: “Congratulations to our 2018 Top Employers! Each year organisations face new challenges and the past year has been particularly challenging, with the march of technology and uncertainty around Brexit driving major organisational change. But our Top Employers continue to achieve the very highest standards of excellence in employee conditions and are really getting creative in terms of motivating, inspiring and retaining their teams.

“From relatively small businesses to large multinational organisations, the awards shine a light on the outstanding people practices in a range of different organisations throughout the UK. The organisations that we have identified are making sure that their teams have sufficient support and are given access to development opportunities that they need to achieve their best.”
