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

Great Place to Work® UK has announced its UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Women list and we’re thrilled to announce that we are number eight!

We are passionate about helping women to progress in the IT industry and this has led to 32% of positions at Phoenix being held by women – well above the 20% industry average. This commitment to supporting women within the industry and encouraging more women into IT and tech are just some of the reasons why Team Phoenix recognise this as a great place to work.Best Workplace for Women in Large Organisations UK 2022 Logo

The Great Place to Work® UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Women showcases that we are:

  • A great workplace for everyone, including women
  • A company where our employees are supported to reach their potential inside and outside of the workplace, regardless of who they are and what they do
  • Supportive of the different identities women hold and ensure their daily experiences are consistently positive
  • Striving for fair representation of women in the workforce, including within senior leadership roles

“From our grassroots works in schools, encouraging more young women to consider a career in IT to our hybrid working policy, enhanced parental leave packages, and support for people returning to the workplace after having children, we are creating a workforce that represents everyone within society, their individual strengths, and what they have to contribute. We realise that a ‘one size fits all approach’ to working life isn’t realistic as everyone needs different things to achieve their best.

“This work is ongoing, and while 96% of employees at Phoenix feel that they are fairly treated regardless of gender, we know that we must continue to work towards diversity, equality, and inclusion in everything we do to ensure that we adapt with the changing needs of our employees and the world.”
– Sam Mudd, Managing Director, Phoenix

Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work® UK, adds: “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. Only by first identifying the gaps in workers’ experiences can organisations truly take action to close them, which is why analysing employee experience is important.”
