*Employees’ Choice Award winners for the 2019 Best Places to Work are determined using Glassdoor’s proprietary awards algorithm, and each employer’s rating determined based on the quantity, quality and consistency of Glassdoor-approved company reviews submitted by UK-based employees between 23rd October, 2017 and 21st October, 2018. During the year-long eligibility period, employers considered for the large list must have received at least 30 ratings for each of the eight workplace attributes (overall company rating, career opportunities, compensation & benefits, work/life balance, senior management, culture & values, recommend to a friend and six-month business outlook) taken into account as part of the awards algorithm.
