Produced in partnership with WorkL, The Sunday Times' Best Places to Work survey is designed to monitor employee engagement and wellbeing. Companies were judged on: Reward and Recognition, Instilling Pride, Information Sharing, Empowerment, Wellbeing and Job Satisfaction and had to achieve a 70% overall engagement score to make the list.
As well as being recognised as one of the best medium-sized organisations to work for, Quooker UK was also a Special Award winner in the Best Places to Work for Wellbeing category, achieving a 97% engagement score for wellbeing. The Sunday Times highlighted Quooker UK’s policies of free lunches from Deliveroo, its casual dress code, giving employees their birthdays off work and allowing pets into the office as contributing to staff wellbeing.
Stephen Johnson, MD of Quooker UK, said: “We have worked tirelessly to create a company culture that puts the individual first. Whilst we value hard work and expect a lot from our staff, we make it a priority to nurture talent through training and development and are always quick to praise and celebrate achievements. We pour resources into training and staff wellbeing and understand that by investing in our people, they in turn will give back a hundred-fold. To be recognised by The Sunday Times as one of the best places to work in the whole country, based on responses from our own employees, is truly phenomenal and incredibly humbling.”
