Leading gifting and engagement expert, Love2Shop, has been officially crowned one of the best places to work in the UK, according to the Best Workplaces Awards 2023 announced today.

The prestigious annual list named the company as one of the best businesses to work for in the country. With more than 250 employees, the gift card, customer loyalty and employee engagement specialist is thrilled to be ranked this year.

 

Claire Jones, People and Integration Director at Love2shop, said: “We are all so incredibly proud to be recognised by Great Place to Work for being one of the best places to work in the UK.

“Love2shop is all about connecting with people and helping to bring joy to the moments that matter most and so, it means a lot to be recognised for successfully connecting with our own people. And for creating a fantastic culture that befits our great teams across the business.

“Pleasingly, it goes to show that our employees recognise that, as a company, we have created a really positive culture and a strong, healthy working relationship.

“By building a team of happy, engaged employees, we are also demonstrating that a positive culture of reward and recognition is the bedrock of a high-performing team.”

 

As well as being the UK’s number one gift card provider, Love2Shop also works with businesses to create customer loyalty and employee engagement strategies using data to drive reward and recognition more effectively.

This prestigious ranking shows that the brand’s core messages work in practice, with Love2Shop earning high scores across the board.

In total, 81% of respondents found Love2shop to be a ‘Great Place to Work’, while the employer also picked up a score of 78% in the Trust Index.

The data behind the list of top UK businesses is collected from a survey of each company’s own employees, measuring how staff feel about workplace culture. Previously, Love2shop has been ranked on the (unrelated) ‘Best Places to Work for Women’ list in 2021. This year, it has also been named one of Great Place to Work’s ‘Best Places to Work for Wellbeing in the UK’.

The confidential feedback was collected by Great Place to Work through a rigorous survey. The data was evaluated independently to conclude a ranking for each employer. Love2shop was placed 32nd out of a total of 87 companies which managed to get placed.

Employees provided insight into their experiences of trust and how employers helped them improve in order to reach their full potential as part of their organisation. Great Place to Work also looked at employees’ daily experiences of innovations, the company’s values and the effectiveness of their leaders to ensure a consistent experience across departments and seniority levels.

 

Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work UK, said: “As the global authority on workplace culture, our mission at Great Place to Work has always been to build a better world by helping organisations become a great place to work for all.

“We strongly believe in the notion of ‘better for business, better for people, better for the world.”
