Egress recognised in UK’s Best Workplaces for Development™ 2024 List

Egress has officially been named as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces for Development™ 2024 by Great Place To Work®, the global authority on workplace culture. Egress ranked 33rd in the inaugural year for the UK’s Best Workplaces for Development List, which recognises companies making employee development a key part of company culture.

Egress’s inclusion on this exclusive list officially acknowledges the ongoing commitment to development, innovation, and employee growth. In the past year, Egress has invested in learning and development at all stages of the business, from emerging talent via an extensive graduate scheme to management programs for aspiring managers and existing leaders.

As well as bolstering the team’s technical skills through job-specific qualifications across all areas of the business, open workshops to support soft skills have been popular including handling change in the workplace, providing the best customer experience, and working in a high-performance team; Egress will shortly embark on a careers fortnight, covering a breadth of topics for employees at all stages of their careers.

Laura Probert, Chief People Officer at Egress, comments:

“We’re so proud to be ranked 33rd for the UK’s Best Workplaces for Development 2024 – this is an area our team has really focused on, and to be listed in the first year of launching the category is exciting. Developing a culture of learning as well as our team members goes far further than improving skills to do the job in front of them; we’re proud to be supporting our employees to be future-focused, enjoy what they do, and feel pride in their development.

“As a company that is unrelenting in proving world-class employee wellbeing, we will be introducing 360 evaluating soon to raise our team’s self-awareness and clarify areas of development. This approach will offer a holistic view for employees to self-evaluate without pressure to meet company-set goals, and I’m excited to see how it affects our team’s view to development in the next 12 months.”

Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place To Work® UK, comments:

“Employee training and development isn’t just about teaching employees to do their jobs. It’s about showing employees they are valued and that there is a path of progression available. Each year, we recognise organisations whose thriving workplace cultures are enabling both their people and their business to flourish.

“Opportunities for learning and development are a crucial element of this success, which is why we’re so thrilled to be recognising this year, for the very first time, the UK’s Best Workplaces for Development. Congratulations to Egress for being part of our 2024 UK’s Best Workplaces for Development List.”

To compile the UK’s Best Workplaces for Development List, Great Place To Work® reviewed each company’s culture, benefits, approach to leadership and development, alongside anonymous responses from employees. These data insights are then used to benchmark each company’s employee value proposition against the culture employees actually experience. Only the businesses that achieve the highest scores after evaluation receive Best Workplaces™ status.
