Places for People named as Best Workplace for Wellbeing

– 1 min read

Places for People is one of a handful of organisations in the country to earn a spot on the first ever UK's Best WorkplacesTM for Wellbeing list by Great Place to Work®.

The award showcases organisations which are dedicated to supporting colleague wellbeing.

We ranked in the Super Large workplace category (1,000+ UK colleagues) alongside 38 other organisations, including, Salesforce, Deloitte, Hilton and Santander.

Thousands of colleague surveys analysed

To determine the list, Great Place to Work® culture experts analysed thousands of colleague surveys to understand the holistic experience of wellbeing at organisations like ours.

The analysts looked at specific Wellbeing Index survey statements on colleagues’ experience of wellbeing at work. Work-life balance, sense of fulfilment, job satisfaction, psychological safety and financial security were also important factors when deciding who made the Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing list.

The award considers how the colleague experience varies depending on characteristics like job role, gender, and age, across departments and seniority levels. This is to make sure that a positive workplace is felt by everyone in the organisation.

Cultivating a healthy working environment

Commenting on the recognition, Greg Reed, Chief Executive Officer at Places for People, said:

“I am proud that we have been recognised for the culture we are striving to create at Places for People. As an organisation, we are committed to putting our people first. Work is a big part of our lives so how people feel when they’re at work really matters. We want to prioritise wellbeing and create a healthy and happy working environment where people can thrive and reach their full potential – this is now more important than ever.

"Our team has worked hard to put initiatives in place that support our people’s wellbeing, sense of connection and job fulfilment, including: better access to resources, mental health first aiders, new communication tools and ways of supporting people while they work remotely. This recognition reassures us that those initiatives are seen and felt across the organisation. We are on a journey to make this the very best place to work, and our efforts won’t end here as we continue listening to our colleagues.”
