The best companies to work for in the UK named for 2022

Britain’s best companies to work for based on employee feedback have been revealed for 2022.

The list was compiled by Great Place to Work – a workplace culture organisation that evaluated hundreds of employee surveys to draw up the rankings.

The annual guide recognises the best small, medium, large and super large businesses in the country, with a total of 290 firms of varying sizes included for this year.

Benedict Gautrey, managing director of Great Place to Work UK, said the second year of the pandemic had “further highlighted” the different experiences people have at work.

“From women often bearing the brunt of childcare responsibilities when schools were closed, to young people working from home without suitable equipment or space, some groups of people in society have been disproportionately affected,” he said.

“The same applies to different sectors. Many of those industries able to shift easily to homeworking arrangements have thrived, while those forced to restrict operations have struggled and had to adapt. The differences that bold leadership and a culture driven by shared values and a sense of purpose can make to organisations are clear.”

Mr Gautrey said Great Places to Work had seen “dramatic shifts” among UK companies in awareness of inclusion and diversity issues, and the environment over the last year. He also said employees were expecting greater equity, transparency, flexibility and purpose in their work.

“Whatever life throws at businesses, bold leadership is required,” he added.

Great Place to Work has surveyed more than 100 million employees globally since 1992 and has used the insights to define what element makes a great workplace.

Here, we take a look at the top 20 best companies to work for in each category, and where their head office is based in the UK. Many of these companies also have other offices around the country.
