Quooker UK has been named as one of the best places to work in 2023, according to an article recently published by The Sunday Times.
The company joins other businesses such as EasyJet Holidays and Better Placed as one of the companies listed within the Sunday Times’ “Best Places to Work: Medium Organisation” category, which is specifically for businesses with 50-249+ employees.
The survey focused on six key areas of employee engagement: Reward and Recognition, Information Sharing, Empowerment, Pride, Job Satisfaction and Wellbeing. Impressively, Quooker reportedly scored over 97% in the Wellbeing category, which the Sunday Times quoted as saying was the result of “the daily free lunches from Deliveroo for the Manchester-based team, the casual dress code and the fact that pets are welcome in the office. Everyone gets their birthday off, paid, while team social events happen regularly, and the company offers a cycle to work scheme.”
Commenting on the achievement Quooker managing director, Stephen Johnson, said: “We have worked tirelessly to create a company culture that puts the individual first. Whilst we value hard work and expect a lot from our staff, we make it a priority to nurture talent through training and development and are always quick to praise and celebrate achievements. My goal has always been to create an environment where people can bring their whole selves to work and as such, are seen, valued and empowered to grow in ability and confidence. We pour resources into training and staff wellbeing and understand that by investing in our people, they in turn will give back a hundred-fold.”
“Our company success and enormous growth over the past decade in large part is due to our dedicated and loyal employees. Their commitment to succeed is extraordinary and I am honoured to work with each and every one of them. To be recognised by the Sunday Times as one of the best places to work in the whole country, based on responses from our own employees, is truly phenomenal and incredibly humbling.”
