Benedict Gautrey, managing director of Great Place to Work UK, said: “Wellbeing, engagement, and trust between employees are critical ingredients to successful workplace culture. We’re able to showcase the leading UK organisations providing environments conducive to outstanding psychological, physical, financial and social wellbeing. It’s no secret that by ensuring employees feel genuinely trusted and cared for, they are much healthier, productive and committed to the mission and purpose of the organisation.”

James Taylor, colleague experience manager at Coventry Building Society, which ranked 20th on the super large list, added: “We work alongside our employees to create an all-round package of wellbeing support which goes much further than an impressive list of benefits, but we’re not getting complacent. We’ve got lots in the pipeline to make sure we keep our staff happy and well so they’re always bringing their very best selves to work.”
