We are dedicated to enabling passionate women to progress in the competitive industry, with over 34% of our positions belonging to women – well above the 20% industry average. This commitment highlights why Phoenix is one of the UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Women, communicating our:

  • Unique initiatives and support: Phoenix drives to provide employees with resources and initiatives to reach their full potential

“The women at Phoenix are an incredible part of our fabric and history. From the two ladies that founded the business in 1990, through to the young and more experienced women that run our business today. Never have I felt prouder to say that we have extremely talented and capable women in our business who want to make a difference and help our next generation of women find career success.

I feel privileged to have the opportunity to change perceptions about women in IT and take my role as an ambassador very seriously. Women of all levels make our company a great place to work and we are thrilled to be recognised in this capacity as a Great Place to Work® for women!” – Sam Mudd, Managing Director at Phoenix Software

Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work® UK comments: “This list celebrates the workplaces that are not just providing a great work environment for all, but are ensuring they’re creating a positive and supportive environment for women too. Each of the companies on our list have been commended by their own female employees who have anonymously told us their workplace has gone above and beyond to ensure that female employees are treated fairly in terms of recognition, training, and promotion opportunities. 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.”
