“We are so proud to be recognized as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces this year,” said Stu Sjouwerman, CEO, KnowBe4. “Company culture is something we strive to perfect every day by creating an environment where open communication, transparency and positive attitudes are valued.”
“Even in times of agonising uncertainty, at Best Workplaces™ the shared mantra of ‘purpose over profit’ has stood firm,” said Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work® UK. “We’re incredibly proud to recognise the 290 companies on our list for their outstanding workplace cultures, and unwavering commitment to supporting employees so they can deliver the best strategic solutions to ever-changing business opportunities and challenges.”
The Employee View
A great workplace is more than lavish perks, fancy parties and amazing benefits. While those elements are present in many Best Workplace™ organisations, at its core a great workplace is about the level of trust that employees experience in their leaders, the level of pride they have in their jobs; and the extent to which they experience camaraderie with their colleagues.
To determine the 2022 UK's Best Workplaces™ list, Great Place to Work® performed rigorous evaluations of hundreds of employee survey responses alongside Culture Audit™ submissions from leaders at each company. They then used these data insights to benchmark the effectiveness of companies' employee value propositions against the culture their employees actually experience.
Those businesses who achieve the highest scores after evaluation receive Best Workplaces™ status.
“Working at KnowBe4 has been such a positive experience. I have nothing but great things to say about everyone who works there. The work environment is so great and all the employees are well taken care of. Not only that but enjoying what you do every day and being surrounded by people pushing you to be your best is a great feeling,” said an employee at KnowBe4.
“This was the best onboarding experience ever! From the recruiting/interview process to onboarding and training, I felt so supported and welcomed. The company culture is amazing and they really do like to have fun. I love the transparency and the overall opportunities to continue to learn,” said an employee at KnowBe4.
