Fostering a great workplace at WP Engine starts with ensuring all of our employees across the globe are engaged and feel like valued members of the team.
As WP Engine has grown to include offices and teams around the world, one way we keep a finger on the pulse of our companywide culture is through Great Place to Work, the global authority on workplace culture, which has affirmed WP Engine’s commitment to being a workplace of choice numerous times since 2017.
Following specific recognition last month as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces for Wellness, WP Engine’s London office has once again been designated as a Great Place to Work in the UK, the third time it has received this honor in addition to other Great Place to Work lists (including Best Workplaces—SMB and Best Workplaces in Tech).
The launch of our London office in 2015 marked the beginning of WP Engine’s global expansion, first in a co-working space and soon after in our own office, which has grown to include more than 60 employees.
As a remote-first company, we’ve also been able to expand beyond the London office itself and fill numerous positions with professionals from all across the UK.
This growth has been led by the talent and culture fostered by our UK team members, who continue to go above and beyond in making WP Engine a Great Place to Work-certified organization.
To become certified, members of our UK team responded to Great Place to Work’s research-backed Trust Index survey, which gauges the level of trust employees experience in their leaders, the level of pride they have in their jobs, and the extent to which they enjoy working alongside their colleagues.
By compiling and seeking out all of this information, Great Place to Work is able to identify outstanding employers who are characterized by a trust-based, “people first” workplace culture their employees love.
“Even in times of agonizing uncertainty, at Best Workplaces, the shared mantra of ‘purpose over profit’ has stood firm,” said Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work® UK.
“We’re incredibly proud to recognize the 290 companies on our list for their outstanding workplace cultures, and unwavering commitment to supporting employees so they can deliver the best strategic solutions to ever-changing business opportunities and challenges.”
Our UK team will have the pleasure of attending the Great Place to Work awards ceremony next month and celebrating with colleagues and other Great Place to Work honorees in style.
