Great Place to Work® has been listening to employee voices for over 40 years to determine what makes a truly great place to work. It administered a research-backed Trust Index© employee survey and analysed the responses of UK-based financial services and insurance employees to determine the Best Workplaces™ list.  

Surveys asked employees to comment on how their company supports work-life balance, sense of fulfilment, job satisfaction, psychological safety and financial security. Evaluations also included an assessment of how well the organisation was able to deliver a consistent employee experience across all departments and seniority levels.
