It’s official! We’ve been named one of the UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing (2023) by Great Place to Work®, the global leader on measuring workplace culture.
We made the decision to start on the Great Place to Work (GPTW) accreditation journey, as part of a wider colleague engagement and wellbeing strategy.
Great Place to Work’s culture experts analysed thousands of employee surveys, assessing people’s holistic experiences of wellbeing at work to determine the UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing list. The surveys asked employees to comment on how their company supports their 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 consistency of their employee experience across all departments and seniority levels.
We surveyed our entire workforce, including those on maternity leave, which resulted in a 96% response rate. 90% of people also responded to state that we were a great place to work.
One colleague commented: “There is a general culture of respect, kindness and autonomy which I think is very special. There is a very open culture in which you feel empowered to and able to communicate ideas and suggestions and for them to be taken seriously.”
Another said: “I like the transparency and the honesty that runs through the business, I also enjoy the fact that I can make a difference and am allowed to do so.”
Jill O’Grady, head of HR at Muse, said:
“At the heart of every organisation are its people and looking after their wellbeing should be much more than a package of impressive perks on a careers website,” explains Benedict Gautrey, managing director of Great Place to Work® UK. “We know when employees feel genuinely contented and at ease within their roles, they are much more engaged and productive. Now in our second year of the UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing list, we’re once again able to showcase the leading organisations providing cultures conducive to outstanding psychological, physical and social wellbeing. A huge congratulations to Muse for making this prestigious list.”
