Thoughtworks ranked in the top 10 for the first time, moving up four places since last year
One of four Great Place to Work shortlistings for the company in 2022, including awards for well-being, women and large workplace categories
Global tech consultancy Thoughtworks has been recognized as one of the UK’s Best Workplace™ in Tech today by Great Place to Work®, the global authority on workplace culture.
The company ranked 10th out of a list of 140 organizations. It is the second consecutive year that the company has made it onto the list, and the first time it has made it into the top 10, moving up four places since 2021. It recognizes that Thoughtworks is a great workplace for all, with an ethos built on trust, and an inclusive and diverse culture that enables employees to create extraordinary impact in the world. It recognizes the importance of innovation and career growth for employees, and prioritizes the well-being and work life balance of staff to provide positive experiences at work.
The award is the fourth time the company has featured in Great Place to Work awards this year, with recent accolades achieved in the well-being, women and large workplace categories.
The news comes as Thoughtworks UK looks to make a significant number of tech professional hires across its three sites in the UK, particularly in the Northeast where the company is about to open a larger premises in Newcastle to accommodate its growing workforce.
Patrick Sarnacke, managing director of Thoughtworks UK said: “Making it onto the Great Place to Work list for Tech for the second year in a row is a huge honor and something we are immensely proud of as an organization. Our employees are a fundamental part of our success and their happiness and development is our top priority. It is clear from this respected accolade that we are doing some things right, however our work does not stop here. Our approach of measuring, monitoring and evaluating areas that we can improve is our sure but steady approach. This is key to ensuring that our colleagues feel valued, happy and supported, and are able to realize their full potential, no matter who they are or what they do.”
Benedict Gautrey, managing director of Great Place to Work® UK, continues: “Now in its fifth year, our 2022 list showcases the largest collection of Best WorkplacesTM in Tech that the UK has ever recognized.
“These results are based on what employees working in the technology industry have anonymously reported to us about their workplace experience. In a fast and ever-evolving industry, these organizations are at the forefront of ensuring employees have the right environment to thrive, they are focused on providing positive work experiences, they value diversity, differences and better ways of doing things and, importantly, are investing in effective leadership to ensure continuous growth.
“Huge congratulations to Thoughtworks for making one of our most prestigious lists.”
