Top Companies for Women to Work in the UK in 2023

Great Place to Work ranks best companies for women to work for the last four years. There are four different lists which are best super large, large, medium, and small companies to work in the UK. Though not all companies in the lists are UK-based, all have headquarters or offices in the UK. Great Place to Work conducts surveys to women employees of hundreds of companies and compiles the results in a list accompanied by a report.

This year’s report focuses on the effects of the pandemic on women workers. According to the report, “the pandemic has further exacerbated existing inequalities between women and men, with many experts fearing that COVID-19 could set ‘women back decades.’” The pandemic particularly had an impact on working mothers. “On average, women spent around 15 hours per week doing housework [whilst] working from home, compared to men who spent only 10 hours,” shows the data from Understanding Society.

The employers’ responsibility to provide more equal conditions for women seems to increase with work from home methods due to the pandemic. 

Seventy-eight per cent of the women employees of the following companies reported their organisation as “a psychologically and emotionally healthy place to work.” The lists include companies from diverse industries, such as hospitality giant Hilton to HR tech genius Signify.
