Kindred Group has been named a 2021 UK Best Workplace
The recognition is driven by an annual employee engagement survey, which measures the extent to which employees across the organisation reported a consistently great workplace experience. It considers factors such as physical and mental wellbeing, fairness, camaraderie, and trust in the leadership. The survey shows that 95% of Kindred’s tech population in the UK say they are treated fairly regardless of age, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disability or position. Furthermore, 95% of tech employees say that Kindred is a friendly place to work.
“We are extremely proud to receive this recognition for the third year running. The pandemic has tested us, and we’ve had to manage big changes in personal and professional lives. At Kindred, we have invested in training for our employees on how to manage remote working, their own mental health and avoid burnout. We have also trained managers to support the mental health of their teams,” Gavin Hayward, Chief HR Officer at Kindred Group, said.
“We have recently introduced our approach to hybrid working. This policy is based on employee feedback and allows our people to organise their time for optimum performance and focus on their goals and responsibilities, whether at home or in the office,” Hayward added.
“Technology has enabled the world of work to evolve with pace during the pandemic – and it’s what will continue to push even more leaders to embrace new ways of working, no matter their organisation 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,” Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work UK, said.
