Celebrations all round today as Amido has been ranked in the UK’s Best Workplaces™ in Tech. The rankings measure employee experience and the culture and environments that organisations provide by surveying employees and auditing each company’s culture, programmes and practices. So we’re incredibly proud that the culture we all play a part in building here at Amido to enable our team to enjoy delivering the work of their lives has secured our place as one of the very best tech consultancies to work at in the UK
The list celebrates the outstanding and cutting-edge practices that tech companies are implementing to create a great place to work, and in a category that includes both product and consultancy businesses, it’s a huge honour to be the 8th named consultancy in medium category.
Great Place to Work®, who run the scheme, define a great workplace as one where “Employees trust the people they work for, have pride in the work they do and enjoy the people they work with.” Companies in the list are doing exceptionally well across all these dimensions, so we’re incredibly proud that people, purpose and culture focus and attitude to drive continuous improvement continues to be recognised amongst the very best.
Since we were ranked 13th within the broader Best Workplaces category, we’ve continued to listen to our team and learn from others at the forefront of doing great things for their people. Here are a few of the things we’ve introduced in the last six months alone that have helped us retain and build our status as one the UK’s Best Workplaces.
We’ve prioritised our value of ‘in it together’ as we’ve accelerated national hiring, with 45 new joiners in 2021 so far! 25% of our headcount is ‘regional’, based outside of London and the Home Counties, so we’re doing even more to bring the Amido culture to remote working.
A huge congratulations to all the other companies who have ranked out there – it’s been a tough time to maintain and build a Great Workplace, but necessity is the mother of invention and some incredible, innovative employee engagement initiatives have come out of the pandemic.
