Consultancies named as best workplaces in technology

11 October 2021 3 min. read

A new list of top workplaces for tech in the UK has named 14 consultancies among the leading firms. The firms in the list were praised for their positive employee experience, and support for staff amid the pandemic.

Great Place to Work is an organisation which has conducted research into what makes a great workplace since 2000. According to the site, a great workplace is one where employees feel valued and trusted, have a sense of purpose, and are proud of what they do and who they work for. Top employers also focus on trusting, listening to and caring for their employees, with employee wellbeing being high on the agenda; effective leadership and line management, and a strong culture aligned to a strong business strategy, are also important.

In a focused due diligence on UK employers in the technology sector, Great Place to Work concluded that a select group of employers can call themselves one of the UK’s best workplaces. Among them are 14 players from the consulting industry.

Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work, commented, “Those within the UK’s tech space who have actively prioritised building a positive employee experience and supported their people’s personal wellbeing are the ones we’re proud to celebrate today… We hope that by highlighting our Tech list recipients, other employers will be encouraged to make changes to their own people strategy and ensure people remain at the heart of their business policies, practices and programmes for a consistently great employee experience for all.”

The list includes many of the largest firms involved in technology consulting in the UK. Firms such as FTI Consulting, CGI and Verisk top the roll-call. However, there is also plenty of room devoted to smaller firms and mid-sized firms, such as Mason Advisory.

Commenting on the firm’s inclusion, Steve Watmough, Mason Advisory CEO, said, “Technology has really kept the world of work moving during the pandemic and, as an organisation, we continue to be committed to ensuring all our employees feel valued and supported every day. We are proud of our working practices and how we have managed to develop such a great culture – and of course, we are proud of every single member of our team. This accolade is testament to their dedication and commitment to our business, and to the high calibre of tech talent in our organisation.”
