Learning Pool Officially Named One of UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing 2023
We are delighted to have officially been named one of the UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing (2023) by Great Place to Work®, the global authority on workplace culture.
Great Place to Work’s culture experts analyzed thousands of employee surveys, assessing people’s holistic experiences of well-being at work to determine the UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing list. The surveys asked employees to comment on how their company supports their work-life balance, sense of fulfillment, job satisfaction, psychological safety, and financial security. Evaluations also included an assessment of how well the organization was able to deliver consistency of their employee experience across all departments and seniority levels.
“Learning Pool has always recognized prioritizing staff wellbeing, incorporating it into our business culture and practices”, explains Learning Pool CHRO, Louise McElvaney. “Our ultimate goals center around having a happy, engaged workforce, providing everyone a chance to grow and develop in their careers and ensuring first-rate customer satisfaction via a collaborative and relationship-based partnership. This approach fosters outstanding commitment from our team and long-term positive business outcomes. We are delighted to be recognized for our efforts here, as a UK Best Workplace™ for Wellbeing.”
In addition to bonus payments and various monetary benefits, rewards include continuous tokens of gratitude, such as meals out for the team and their families, in-house yoga, well-being sessions, gym memberships and fresh fruit deliveries to the offices. Some further standout initiatives include Learning Pool having life assurance for every member of its team, with a wealth of resources, such as free access to CBT sessions, 24-hour counseling services, guidance on financial matters and a death in-service payment.
The staff also enjoy extended support for CSR activities and other such passions, including 2 paid days off annually to volunteer their time at a charity of their choice, and matched contributions to any money raised. The company has further just launched an ambitious new initiative ‘Learning Pooloza’, where it’s pausing business to offer 3500 hours of voluntary support in a single day with its entire workforce.
“At the heart of every organization are its people and looking after their wellbeing should be much more than a package of impressive perks on a careers website,” explains Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work® UK. “We know when employees feel genuinely content and at ease within their roles, they are much more engaged and productive. Now in our second year of the UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing list, we’re once again able to showcase the leading organizations providing cultures conducive to outstanding psychological, physical, and social well-being. A huge congratulations to Learning Pool for making this prestigious list.”
