London, 30th September 2021 – Employees have spoken! Culture is just one of the reasons why employees at Collaborative Solutions love working for their employer. Despite the challenges of this year, Collaborative was able to maintain their award-winning culture, achieving placement on the 2021 UK’s Best Workplaces™ in Tech list in the medium category, this year ranking #25.
Great Place to Work® UK recognised Collaborative Solutions alongside 98 additional organisations. Great Place to Work® UK administered their research-backed Trust Index© employee survey and analysed the responses of UK-based tech employees to determine their Best Workplaces™ list.
What this recognition confirms about Collaborative Solutions:
- Collaborative Solutions’ is a great workplace FOR ALL employees, not just a few.
- Collaborative Solutions’ employees feel a strong sense of Trust, Fairness, Pride, Camaraderie and Wellbeing because of how their workplace treats them.
- Collaborative Solutions’ lives up to its company values with leaders making meaningful changes to improve how they recruit, retain and nurture their talent.
Collaborative values balance, as it is one of their core values. It can be difficult to achieve balance as a consulting company in a growing and fast-paced industry, but Collaborative has put initiatives and benefits in place to provide work-life balance for employees, such as unlimited paid time off, flex work schedules with opportunities to work remotely, paid sick time, and volunteer time off. These benefits are not only offered but highly encouraged to employees to establish personal and professional harmony.
“Throughout 2020 and 2021 our employees fully embraced the challenges that came with moving to a fully remote world. They swiftly transitioned our clients to remote deployments and were able to establish the same level of trust despite having no in-person interactions. Our employees are truly the reason we were able to maintain success. We could not be prouder to be named one of the UK’s Best Workplaces in Tech, especially when this recognition is the result of the feedback provided by our employees” said Rob Maltby, Collaborative’s Vice President.
“Technology is what has enabled the world of work to evolve with pace during the pandemic – and what will continue to push even more leaders to embrace new ways of working, no matter what their organisation’s size, location or industry. Those within the UK’s tech space who have actively prioritised building a positive employee experience and supported their people’s personal wellbeing are the ones we’re proud to celebrate today,” said Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work® UK. “In this fourth year of recognising UK’s Best Workplaces™ in Tech, many of these firms experienced rapid growth, but never lost sight of their values. They maintained their mantra of ‘putting people first’, often finding innovative and creative solutions to drive their great workplace culture remotely. We hope that by highlighting our Tech list recipients, other employers will be encouraged to make changes to their own people strategy and ensure people remain at the heart of their business policies, practices and programmes for a consistently great employee experience for all.”
Collaborative Solutions consistently ranks among the best workplaces in the United States and in the United Kingdom. Its recognition on this list follows its placement on the US 2021 Fortune Great Place to Work® Best Small and Medium Workplaces, 2021 Consulting Magazine Best Firms to Work For, US 2021 Great Place to Work® Best Workplaces in Consulting & Professional Services, UK 2021 Best Workplaces™ list, and the US 2021 Fortune Great Place to Work® Best Workplaces for Millennials.
