Yesterday So Energy was named in the prestigious Sunday Times Best Places to Work list for 2024. The Chiswick-based renewable energy retailer, who supplies over 350,000 households across Great Britain, was named in the big organisation category, for businesses with between 250 and 1,999 employees.

The annual employee engagement survey recognises businesses who offer the best workplaces for women, the LGBTQ+ community, disabled employees, ethnic minorities, younger and older workers.

 

CEO and Co-Founder of So Energy Simon Oscroft said:

“As a supplier who was founded on the basis of wanting to change the industry for the better, making this list is a wonderful achievement. To build a fairer energy market and enable net zero living for our customers, we must have a diverse and inclusive workforce that reflects the customers and communities we serve. That means bringing more diverse and balanced voices to the table and creating an environment of belonging for our whole team. And whilst we still need to do much more – both as an employer and particularly as a sector – this award shows we continuing to take steps in the right direction.”    

 

So Energy launched their Diversity and Belonging Strategy in early 2023 and have since expanded these efforts by calling on their partners throughout the supply chain to work together to diversify the energy sector.

So Energy has also consistently offered good value, fair and transparent energy deals to customers, consistently leading the market in offering price cap beating tariffs, particularly since the energy crisis began, when they were the first supplier to offer fixed tariffs for new customers in July 2023.

As part of their commitment to enabling net zero living for customers, So Energy launched Britain’s first full service online solar and storage solution, and they are currently running heat pump trials for customers.
