Glassdoor Best Places to Work in the UK 2018

Why we are proud to be one of the best places to work


We have been announced as one of Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work in the UK in 2018 Awards. I’m particularly proud of this award win because it is solely judged by our employees, past and present. We were ranked in the top 50 employers and are the only recruiter (and one of only seven employers in the UK) to have enjoyed this accolade for the fourth consecutive year.


We benefit from having over 1,700 reviews on Glassdoor, which is perfectly aligned to our approach of promoting an open and honest culture. We encourage continuous feedback to ensure that we can continue to improve and this is reflected by the positive reviews, the outstanding people who want to work with us and the impact we have on the world of work.


From day one our employees are given the support they need to excel in their careers, which translates into a high-performance culture and excellent service delivery for our customers. Our employees receive extensive training from our experienced in-house team. For example, we have fast-track schemes to leadership positions, programmes to support new people managers and coaching opportunities. We are also working towards the National Equality Standard, which shows our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion.


Being one of the best recruiters to work for offers immense benefits for our customers too. It means our clients and candidates get to work with consultants who receive industry-leading training, are experts in their field, and who not only want to do well for themselves, but who also want to excel for our customers. It means our customers get to work with experienced recruiters who truly are experts.


Awards, such as this, along with Glassdoor Best Places to Interview and recognition of our graduate and internship opportunities from The Job Crowd and Rate My Placement, show that our employees recognise the positive impact this level of commitment has on their careers. I would like to thank everybody who provided the reviews and helped us to win these awards. Well done to everybody at Hays!
