Tech companies dominate this year’s Glassdoor’s UK Employees’ Choice Awards, based on employee ratings.

In the UK 21 of the 50 listed companies are in the tech sector and six are in the top 10 of the ranking. Thirteen sectors are represented, including manufacturing, hospitality, construction, finance, transportation, consulting and advertising.

For the first time, management consulting company Bain & Company ranks top for its friendly culture, its approach to work-life balance and the learning opportunities it offers. Second was ServiceNow and third was Boston Consulting Group.

A quarter of the employers are newcomers to the UK list. The 13 new companies include Equinix (No. 4, 4.7), Version 1 (No. 10, 4.6), Office for National Statistics (No. 21, 4.6), SUSE (No. 24, 4.6) and Heathrow Airport (No. 46, 4.5). Ten employers absent from the UK’s 2022 list are rejoining in 2023, including Arup (No, 8, 4.6 last on 2020 list), BlackRock (No. 12, 4.6 last on 2021 list), Cromwell Tools (No. 22, 4.6 last on 2021 list) and Expedia Group (No. 47, 4.5 last on 2018 list). Google (No. 7, 4.6) is recognised for the ninth consecutive year – the only employer to make the UK list every year since launch.

Glassdoor ratings are based on employees reviews about their employer and are asked to list the reasons for their reviews and the pros and cons of working for their employer.  They are also encouraged to provide advice to management and to rate how satisfied they are with their employer overall, rate their CEO and key workplace attributes including career opportunities, compensation and benefits, culture and values, diversity and inclusion, senior management and work-life balance. In addition, they are asked whether they would recommend their employer to a friend and whether they believe their employer’s six-month business outlook is positive, negative or if they have no opinion.

Christian Sutherland-Wong, Glassdoor Chief Executive Officer, said: “The past year brought extreme highs and lows for job seekers and employees, but despite an increasingly uncertain job market, Glassdoor data shows there are still companies hyper-focused on creating outstanding employee experiences. It’s encouraging to see companies doubling down on employee mental health and wellbeing, diversity and inclusion, competitive benefits and flexible work environments as we head into 2023.”
