Tech companies still dominating in Glassdoor’s ‘Best Places to Work’ list

Glassdoor's Best Places to Work 2023


Tech companies are continuing to dominate as some of the best places to work, according to Glassdoor.

Glassdoor, the worldwide leader on insights about jobs and companies, has announced the winners of it’s annual Employees’ Choice Awards, honouring the ‘Best Places to Work 2023’ across the UK and four other countries.

Glassdoor’s UK Best Places to Work 2023 features winning employers across 13 industries including manufacturing, hospitality, construction, finance, transportation, consulting, advertising and more.

For the first time, management consulting company Bain & Company claims the UK’s top spot with a rating of 4.7 out of 5. Employees called out the company’s friendly culture, strong work-life balance and excellent learning opportunities.

Tech companies

Tech companies dominate the list with 21 employers from the sector recognised, including six in the top 10. Ocado Technology, Salesforce, Google, ServiceNow and Equinix are amongst the top ten of UK’s Best Places to Work.

The Best Places to Work list comes at a time when workers in the UK face significant economic uncertainty. Glassdoor research reveals employee discussion around cost of living and inflation has jumped 297% in the last 12 months, and mentions of ‘recession’ have soared 804% – a ninefold increase*. With hiring set to remain challenging throughout 2023, companies with strong reputations as great places to work stand apart from the competition. It is also easier to attract and retain talent, with Glassdoor research finding satisfied employees are 19% less likely to apply for new roles.

Highs and lows

Speaking about the results, 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.”

“I sincerely congratulate all of the Best Places to Work winners.”
