Egress | 15th Mar 2024

London, UK – March 15th, 2024 – Cybersecurity firm Egress has been ranked the 32nd best large organization to work for this year’s by Great Places to Work® UK. This marks the third year in a row that Egress has been listed in the prestigious ranking, climbing from 50th last year, and cements its position as a leading employer in the UK. 

Key findings from the Best Workplaces™ for Great Places to Work® survey include: 

  • 92% of people would say this is a great place to work 
  • 93% of people feel proud to tell others they work here 
  • 97% of people feel they are made to feel welcome when joining the company 

The most frequently mentioned benefit in this year’s survey was Egress’ unique eFlex scheme where employees are encouraged to take two hour-long breaks each week, as well as six half-days a year specifically for their wellbeing. This amounts to 15 additional days of leave on top of holiday allowance and has been instrumental in enhancing flexibility and workplace satisfaction. EFlex has recently been shortlisted for Innovation of the Year at the British HR Awards 2024. 

In 2023, Egress was ranked 50th in the overall category for large companies, 45th for workplaces for women, 34th for wellbeing and was listed in the unranked tech category. 

The accolade is based entirely on anonymous employee feedback compiled by Great Place to Work® through a survey where employees are asked to comment on how their company supports their work-life balance, sense of fulfilment, job satisfaction, psychological safety, and financial security, covering all levels of seniority and every department. 

Laura Probert, Chief People Officer at Egress, comments: 

“We’re completely thrilled by Egress’ ranking for 2024 in the Great Places to Work® list, and to continue moving up the table is a testament to the hard work not only from our People team, but the entire Egress workforce.  

“We’ve been building a culture of feedback where the team can be honest and know they are truly being listened to. By surveying employees throughout the year, we’ve been far more agile to spot areas for improvement and adapt immediately, showing our workforce that we are truly committed to being one of the UK’s top employers. 

“Climbing from 50th place in 2023 to 32nd in 2024 is a real highlight for me personally, and we’ve got exciting plans for the next 12 months to hopefully rise through the ranks next year.” 

Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place To Work® UK, comments: 

“Year after year, it's truly inspiring to witness a growing number of organizations earn a spot on our UK’s Best Workplaces™ List, we’ve seen our client’s Trust Index scores increasing meaning the bar for being on this List 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.
