We’re one of the UK’s Best Workplaces for Women™

We’re thrilled to announce that Something Big has ranked by Great Place to Work UK® in the UK’s Best Workplaces for Women™ list.

When co-founding Something Big more than two decades ago, one of our CEO’s main reasons for leaving the corporate world was to create a workplace where women could thrive. Long before we knew the impact of a global pandemic, we had already introduced family friendly policies like flexible working, work from anywhere, variable hours, and the ability to flex according to evolving childcare solutions. We work hard to avoid late night deadlines by investing in great planning and scheduling so we can maintain our responsiveness to our clients without the cost to our team. We avoid the ‘work hard, play hard’ culture that our London counterparts have become famous for, and instead we concentrate on doing great work together. This overt strategy has benefited our whole team, and meant that we’ve attracted ambitious, high performing, experienced and talented people who want to balance great work with having a great life.

As Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work® UK, explains: “Now in its fifth year, our 2022 list showcases the largest collection of Best Workplaces™ for Women that the UK has ever recognised. These results are based on what women themselves have anonymously reported to us about their workplace experience and how well represented they are in the workforce and management.  Ensuring people aren’t discriminated against, placing positive value on our differences, creating fair access and advancement for all, and fostering a sense of value and empowerment in employees is what being a Great Place to Work® is all about.”

While there is progress being made to make the business environment a better place for women, there is still much work to be done. To read more about our journey and why we feel it is so important for all businesses to strive to be better workplaces for women, then check out our CEO’s article here.

Our culture will continue to have a strong people-first approach, with our key strategy being ‘a happy team keeps our customers happy, and that makes our business work’. We are so proud to have been ranked so highly in the UK’s Best Workplaces for Women™ list, and we hope to be even higher next year!

If you too are on a journey of fostering a workplace culture that values your employees and their right to fulfilling work and a balanced life, then we’d love to hear from you.
