Version 1 Named one of UK’s Best Workplaces in Tech 2020
Version 1 has ranked as the 6th Best Large Workplace in Tech in the UK 2020.
Version 1 is delighted to announce that we have been crowned a Great Place to Work in Tech 2020. This accolade tops off an exciting year for us; Version 1 was also listed for the fifth consecutive time as a ‘Best Workplace in Europe‘ recently too.
In order to assess what makes Version 1 a great workplace, 85% of the evaluation was based on what employees say about their experiences of trust and reaching their full potential at Version 1, no matter who they are or what they do. Ensuring that our people bring their true selves to work every day is a clear focus in Version 1, where belonging plays a huge role in our people success and employee engagement strategies.
Great Place to Work analyses these experiences relative to each organisation’s size, workforce make up, and what’s typical relative to their peers in the industry. The remaining 15% of the rank is based on an assessment of all employees’ daily experiences of innovation, the company’s values, and the effectiveness of their leaders, to ensure they’re consistently experienced.
There isn’t any one thing that makes us a Great Place to Work in Tech 2020, but there are a few things that set us apart; strong core values, a culture of trust and empowerment and a vision for customer success. Our key technology partnerships are also no doubt a major contributing factor in allowing us to rank as a great workplace in technology; for customers seeking a true partner who will make a real difference to their businesses with IT, Version 1 offers the specialist knowledge, experience and expertise to make it happen.
CEO of Version 1, Tom O’Connor, was thrilled with the win. “We are so proud to be named as a Great Place to Work in Tech in the UK for the second consecutive year. Receiving this award is a testament to our continued investment in technology and innovation. As an employer, we provide exciting opportunities to work with different projects and technologies, but more than that, the emphasis Version 1 places on its employees is the reason we have received this award once again. Looking to the future, we are committed to advancing and strengthening our organisation’s technical competencies to fuel Customer Success, with many exciting solutions in progress with customers currently.”
