Samsara Inc. (NYSE: IOT), the pioneer of the Connected Operations™ Cloud, has officially been named as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces™ 2024 by Great Place To Work®, the global authority on workplace culture — ranking 14th in the medium size company category.

Samsara’s recognition as one of the UK’s best workplaces for tech is driven by feedback from its employees, with 98% of its UK workforce saying they are treated fairly, regardless of their age, gender, race or sexual orientation. 96% agree that they are proud to work at the company, 94% say they can be their true selves at work, and 92% feel like they are making a positive difference to the wider community.

 

“As an organisation, we aim to be a top destination for talent across the globe, and this recognition as the 14th Best Workplace in the UK is a testament to the fact that we’re fostering a purpose-driven environment where Samsarians feel valued, inspired and empowered,” said Jesper Helt, Head of People, EMEA at Samsara. “Our company values inform how we operate our business, build our culture, and shape the programmes and resources we offer our employees. And this recognition highlights how we’re building an organisation fit for the long term.”

Samsara strives to provide an exceptional experience for every employee, with inclusive benefits designed to support people both personally and professionally. In the UK, these include competitive pay, an employee stock purchase programme, flexible paid time off, paid sabbaticals, family planning and fertility treatment benefits, mental health and professional development coaching, employee resource groups, mentorship programmes, and more. With a continuous employee feedback loop, Samsara listens and evolves its offerings to best reflect the needs of its growing workforce.

One employee who was surveyed as part of the certification process commented on why Samsara is a great place to work in the UK: “Samsara’s company culture is what sets us apart. While the benefits and pay package are always motivating, the fact that the team can lean on one another to achieve their individual, team and company goals is priceless. On top of that, everyone is committed to our company mission of making the world a safer and more sustainable place.”

“At Great Place To Work® our overarching goal has consistently been to enrich the world of work by empowering companies to evolve into exceptional organisations that cater to everyone. We wholeheartedly endorse the idea that what’s ‘better for business’ aligns with what’s ‘better for people,’ ultimately contributing to a better world For All™,” said Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place To Work® UK.  

“Year after year, it’s truly inspiring to witness a growing number of organisations earn a spot on our UK’s Best Workplaces™ List,” Gautrey continues, “We’ve seen our client’s Trust Index scores increasing, meaning the bar for being on this List is getting higher. This recognition is no mean feat and highlights companies across the UK that excel in fostering high levels of trust in leadership, instilling pride in their workforce, and cultivating strong camaraderie among colleagues. These crucial elements collectively contribute to creating workplaces where employees feel they can truly be themselves and thrive in a supportive environment. Congratulations to Samsara for being part of our 2024 UK’s Best Workplaces™ List.” 

Great Place To Work® performed rigorous evaluations of hundreds of employee survey responses alongside Culture Audit™ submissions from leaders at each company to create the 2024 UK’s Best Workplaces™ list. They then used these data insights to benchmark the effectiveness of companies’ employee value propositions against the culture their employees actually experience. Only those businesses who achieve the highest scores after evaluation receive Best Workplaces™ status.
