Mason Advisory, an independent IT consultancy, has been featured in the Great Place to Work In Technology 2020 report.
Based at MediaCityUK in Salford, the company placed 9th in the small companies list (between 20 and 50 employees) – confirming that employees feel Mason Advisory is a great workplace.
The report is compiled by Great Place to Work®, an organisational consultancy working with businesses to become great workplaces, and reviews insights, workplace culture and people practices among employers in the technology sector. The methodology behind the rankings is one of the most rigorous and highly regarded in the UK and the report analyses recruitment, retention, growth, upskilling and training, and diversity and inclusivity. It bases the results on the opinion of employees, as staff feedback makes up the results of the Trust Index to ensure the full workforce is included in the survey.
Mason Advisory is continually investing in and implementing improvements in workplace culture, employee wellbeing, and career development. During the pandemic, it has continued to operate effectively and flexibly with staff working remotely, but with the choice of coming into the office should they need to, and within strict safety guidelines. This recognition confirms that employees at Mason Advisory feel a strong sense of trust, fairness and camaraderie.
Steve Watmough, Mason Advisory CEO, says:“We’ve had to be agile, adapt to new working conditions and acknowledge the impact these changes will have on our team, both inside and outside the working day, while maintaining the same high quality of work delivered for our clients. We’re so proud to have received this recognition and it’s a morale booster for our whole workforce under the current circumstances. Our employees are the heart of our business and we appreciate their commitment, enthusiasm and sheer hard work – it’s impressive to see how they have thrived while working from home and been able to continue their professional and personal development.
“2020 has had plenty of highs and lows for us as a company but this award will stand us in good stead and gives us the confidence that our team is happy with our working practices and company culture. Thank you to all our employees for helping us to build a great workplace.”
Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work® UK, says: “Especially during these times of crisis and uncertainty, it’s incredible to see the number of organisations within UK’s tech space that have prioritised building a positive employee experience.
“In this, our third year of recognising UK’s Best Workplaces in Tech, we’ve seen many organisations find innovative and creative solutions in continuing to drive their great workplace culture remotely. We hope that by highlighting our Tech list recipients, other employers will be encouraged to put their people strategy at the heart of their business and continue to implement policies, practices and programmes that sustain an impactful and consistently great employee experience for all.”
