Secure Trust Bank Group (STBG) has been recognised as one of the UK's Best Workplaces™ (2023) today by Great Place to Work®, the global authority on workplace culture.
Fair treatment, particularly when it comes to equality, diversity and inclusion; open, honest and respectful line management; and a positive work environment and processes are just some of the reasons why the company ranked 12 out of 87 in the Large organisations category and why employees love working for STBG. This is the fifth time running that STBG has been named as a UK Best Workplace.
David McCreadie, CEO at STBG, said:
"I'm extremely proud that we have been awarded the UK Best Workplace accolade for the fifth year in a row. It reflects the hard work of our teams to implement initiatives and best practices across the Group, and take action from the valuable feedback that colleagues take the time to give. This accreditation contributes to our purpose to help more consumers and businesses fulfil their ambitions."
"As the global authority on workplace culture, our mission at Great Place to Work® has always been to build a better world by helping organisations become a great place to work for all. We strongly believe in the notion of 'better for business, better for people, better for the world," said Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work® UK.
"Best Workplaces™ consistently put people first - not just in terms of looking out for their own employees but also by caring for and supporting their surrounding community and environment. We're incredibly proud to recognise the very best 'For All' organisations committed to equity and unfaltering in ensuring that all employees are empowered to deliver the right strategic solutions to ever-changing business opportunities and challenges."
A great workplace is more than lavish perks, fancy parties and amazing benefits. While those elements are present in many Best Workplace™ organisations, at its core a great workplace is about the level of trust that employees experience in their leaders, the level of pride they have in their jobs; and the extent to which they experience camaraderie with their colleagues.
Great Place to Work® performed rigorous evaluations of hundreds of employee survey responses alongside Culture Audit™ submissions from leaders at each company to create the 2023 UK's Best Workplaces™ list. They then used these data insights to benchmark the effectiveness of companies' employee value propositions against the culture their employees actually experience.
Those businesses that achieve the highest scores after evaluation receive Best Workplaces™ status.
