Apple is the best company to work for in Britain, according to a new study which ranked companies with a British base using millions of employee reviews.
The study, compiled by jobs board Indeed, saw North East-based firm, Wren Kitchens come second – rewarded for consistently valuing and treating its employees well.
Global pharmaceuticals business GlaxoSmithKline came third with Bill Richards, UK Managing Director, Indeed noting that firms that performed well had certain factors in common. He said:
“The difference between a good job and a great job can vary from person to person, but our ranking shows some common themes shine through."
“Companies that make their employees feel valued and offer a positive working environment score consistently highly among the reviews posted on Indeed.
“As we continue to see for many staff, work-life balance, career prospects and a great workplace culture can all mean more than a good salary alone. There was good news for domestic-based firms as they made up two-thirds of the list.”
Mar Pullan, Managing Director at Wren Kitchens added: “Wren is a family business, passionate about giving our customers their dream kitchen. We truly believe in developing our staff to their full potential. We have a fast-paced, hard working culture, and those who put the effort in are rewarded with great earning potential and a fun, fulfilling career.”
Colleen Schuller, Head of Employee Engagement at GlaxoSmithKline was also proud of how her firm ranked.
“We’re a science-led global healthcare company with a special purpose to help people do more, feel better and live longer – and we believe that starts with our people,” she said. “So it’s great to see that past and present employee feedback reinforces that GSK is a great place to work.”
