The 20 companies with the best workplace culture and leadership development – as chosen by employees – have been named in new research by professional management body the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and job site Glassdoor https://www.glassdoor.co.uk/Reviews/index.htm
Second was hospitality tech firm, Fourth, which promotes a split leadership structure, clearly distinguishing between two types of manager: the technical specialists and the people specialists.
The third highest-rated company in the study was software consultancy Equal Experts, which aspires to be a ‘company of grown-ups’, where staff are recruited on the premise that they will be able to act autonomously, seeking advice on the decisions they make, rather than adhering to a strict hierarchy.
The firms were scored through analysis of the reviews posted on the Glassdoor website by current and former employees of more than 700,000 companies.
Patrick Woodman, Head of Research and Advocacy at CMI, said: “The CMI/Glassdoor Top 20 highlights the best companies for corporate culture and leadership in the UK. At a time when trust in business is at an all-time low and there are major worries about the UK’s poor productivity, every organisation can learn from these fantastic examples of well-managed businesses. These 20 companies show how quality management and leadership makes a real difference in inspiring and motivating employees.
