Glassdoor, an online leader of insights about jobs and companies, has announced the winners of its Employees’ Choice Awards, honouring the Best Places to Work in 2022 across the UK and four other countries. Tech Companies dominate Glassdoor’s list of top places to work, with the awards based on the input of employees who voluntarily provide anonymous feedback on Glassdoor by completing a company review about their job, work environment and employer over the past year.

The Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards feature six distinct categories, including honours for the Best Places to Work across several different countries. Winners are ranked based on their overall rating achieved during the past year.

“The world of work is rapidly evolving, fueled by the pandemic and now millions of workers reevaluating their expectations of employers. This year’s Best Places to Work winners are leading the way by listening and responding to employee feedback and reimagining the employee experience to truly put their people first,” said Christian Sutherland-Wong, Glassdoor Chief Executive Officer.

“It’s inspiring to see these employers step up during the pandemic to expand and grow company cultures where employees feel supported and valued in and out of work. Congratulations to all of this year’s Employees’ Choice Award winners.”

Tech companies dominate the list with 19 winners, including seven in the top 10. Other industries represented include finance, manufacturing, travel & tourism, construction, media, retail, restaurants and more.

How does it work? When employees submit reviews about their employer on Glassdoor, they are asked to share their opinions on some of the best reasons to work for their employer (pros), any downsides (cons) and are encouraged to provide advice to management. In addition, employees are asked to rate how satisfied they are with their employer overall, rate their CEO as well as rate key workplace attributes like career opportunities, compensation and benefits, culture and values, diversity and inclusion, senior management and work-life balance.

Employees are also asked whether they would recommend their employer to a friend and whether they believe their employer’s six-month business outlook is positive, negative or if they have no opinion.

Among the nearly two million employers reviewed on Glassdoor, the average company rating is 3.7. Read more about how tech Companies dominate Glassdoor’s list of top places to work by clicking here.
