Staff reveal what it's REALLY like to work at these firms in 2022

Glassdoor has revealed the best places to work in the UK for 2022, with firms that prioritise diversity, staff wellbeing and workplace culture leading the way.

The annual ranking is based on anonymous feedback from employees through Glassdoor, via a company review about their job, work environment, and boss over the past year.

From that survey, each workplace is given a number from one to five – with five being the absolute best.

Taking the top spot for 2022 is software company ServiceNow, which averaged out at a 4.6 rating.

In second place this year came AND Digital, followed by Salesforce, which topped 2021’s rankings but still came in third this year.

Although the list features companies across a wide variety of sectors, common themes have emerged in employee reviews, revealing what’s important to workers in 2022.

What’s important to staff?

One Sales Director at the ServiceNow said: “Diversity, excellent product, supports customers well, puts customers at the very heart of everything we do. Supports its people, enables brilliance, fantastic leadership.”

Of AND Digital, one employee praised the firm for its “genuine desire to put people first and look after their wellbeing”, and hailed “plenty of progression opportunities.”

Employees at Immediate Media, the UK’s largest publisher and owner of publications such as the Radio Times and BBC Good Food, chalked up their firm’s fourth place finish to “a caring and supportive environment and a culture of honesty/transparency (especially obvious at the height of the pandemic).”

And, following its recent rebrand from Facebook Meta rounded out Glassdoor’s top ten list for 2022. One UK worker at the social media giant said: “There’s an inclusive, welcoming and open culture and enough autonomy to develop new projects and really play to your strengths.”

The last year has seen large-scale changes in workplace trends, with UK employees putting increasing importance on hybrid working environments and workplace communities that exist beyond the company walls.

Given these shifts in employee expectations, it’s no surprise that the UK’s ‘Best Place to Work’ in 2022 have been noted for their focus on a flexible approach to work-life balance, great company culture and good career growth.

Christian Sutherland-Wong, Glassdoor Chief Executive Officer, said: “The world of work is rapidly evolving, fuelled by the pandemic and now millions of workers are re-evaluating 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.

“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,” Sutherland-Wong added.
