International property and construction consultancy Gleeds has announced that its UK business has been awarded coveted Great Place to Work® certification by the global authority on workplace culture for a second year.

Certification™ is a significant achievement, backed by validated and anonymous feedback from Gleeds employees and collected through Great Place To Work®. As the global authority, Great Place To Work® utilises its rigorous, data driven For All™ methodology to assess workplace culture. This accreditation recognises the fact that 73% of employees consistently enjoy a positive overall experience at Gleeds.

Over 80% said that they are proud to shout about working at Gleeds, citing a culture where people are made to feel welcome and encouraged to be themselves. Four out of five also considered management to be approachable and easy to talk to, with an even greater number feeling that colleagues across the business genuinely care about each other.

“We are incredibly proud to have once again become Great Place to Work Certified™.” says Anthony Cork, UK Managing Director at Gleeds. “Our people are our most important asset, and our success as a business relies on everyone enjoying what they do, having purpose in their work, and feeling like they belong. The feedback provided is meaningful and we will continue to build it into our ways of working to further enhance our employee experience. Thanks to all those whose input into the survey enabled us to earn this prestigious recognition.”

Commenting on Gleeds’ latest accreditation, Kate Williams, UK people director said, “Once again, our survey results were really encouraging, and I am delighted to see that we’ve fostered a culture that our people can be proud of. We received some wonderful feedback and it is heartening to hear that people feel seen, heard and valued at Gleeds.”
