Chris Newkirk, chief executive officer at Capital One UK, said: “We have built an amazing workplace and we live our values and culture not to win awards, but in pursuit of supporting each other and our customers.

“That said, winning kudos from the prestigious Great Place to Work Institute and standing out in a competitive field is great validation that we’re doing something right… not to mention having a ton of fun.”
