Salesforce is UK’s best super large workplace for women

Salesforce has been named one of the UK’s Best Workplaces for Women for the second year in a row, according to Great Place to Work’s 2021 report.

The cloud-based software business was ranked first in the super large organisation category, with Admiral Group and Hilton coming in at second and third. The Sovini Group, Foundation SP and Signify Technology each took first place in the large, medium and small categories respectively, with The Sovini Group also maintaining its position for the second year in a row.

Great Place to Work’s annual Best UK Workplaces for women recognition awards, which is in its fourth year, carried out its trust index employee survey among 114 UK-based organisations and analysed the responses of female employees.

The research found that the organisations where women reported a highly positive workplace experience had programmes in place that tackle the specific challenges facing women during the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, as well as addressing the gaps in equal pay and career progression.
