The best way to judge a company is based on what the people who work there say and our recent employee survey has resulted in us being named as one of the UK's Best Workplaces for Well-being by Great Place to Work.
To determine our place on the UK's Best Workplaces for Well-being list, the Great Place to Work culture experts analysed thousands of employee surveys, assessing peoples' experiences at work through things like:
