Expedia named best place to work in the UK 2017


Expedia has been named the best place to work in the UK at Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work 2017 Employees’ Choice Awards.

The award winners are based on employee reviews posted on Glassdoor over the last year, with staff sharing their views on career opportunities, compensation and benefits, culture and values, as well as how satisfied they are with their employer, and the advantages or disadvantages of working at the organisation. Employees are also encouraged to provide advice for management and to rate their chief executive officer.

This is the second year in a row that Expedia has been ranked as the best place to work in the UK. ARM Holdings, HomeServe UK, Mott MacDonald, and Hays make up the top five organisations on the UK 2017 list.

In the US, Bain and Company has been named best large employer, followed by Facebook, Boston Consulting Group, Google, and World Wide Technology.
