Amido Awarded as one of the UK’s Best Places to Work

News Facts:

  • Amido is recognised as being a great place to work with its ‘lead by example’ culture and ‘people first’ work ethos
  • The UK’s Best Workplace List surveys over 10,000 companies globally and is regarded as the gold standard of all employer awards
  • Amido adds to its already growing list of achievements, including: The Sunday Times Lloyds SME Export Track 100 league table, Econsultancy’s Top 100 Digital Agencies List and the FT1000 fastest growing European companies list

London, U.K., 30th April, 2018 – Amido, a vendor-agnostic technical consultancy specialising in cloud-first transformation, debuts on the globally recognised UK Best Workplaces 2018 list, alongside 127 UK organisations1, under the medium companies’ category.

The Best Workplace list is the world’s largest survey run by the consultancy Great Place to Work UK that analyses workplace cultures and people practices using one of the most rigorous and highly regarded ranking procedures and is regarded as the ‘gold standard’ of all employer awards.

Great Place to Work UK is part of a global organisation that helps businesses to create exceptional, high performing work environments where employees feel trusted and valued. Through applying data and insights from approximately 10,000 organisations across the world to benchmark individual performance, it makes them well equipped to run the annual Best Workplaces Awards. With no other survey assessing both the employee’s experience as well as the HR and leadership practices, Great Place to Work UK’s unique methodology results in stiff competition for these highly sort after rankings.

Alan Walsh, CEO of Amido, adds: “This is the first time we have entered this survey even though we have always invested in our people, their well-being and their progression with skills.  We are very strong in our ethos of being a ‘people-first company’ as we realise the value in trusting our employees which rewards our clients with productivity and excellence in the skills and services we provide for them. For Amido to rank 50 on the highly respected UK’s Best Workplaces list demonstrates how we have maintained this vibrant culture that has ultimately led to our growth of 380% since 2014! This investment in time and employee needs underpins our appreciation of them and in turn they enjoy coming to work – and our clients love working with us at Amido.”

The placement in the UK Best Workplaces 2018 list swiftly follows Amido’s ranking on the FT 1000: Europe’s Fastest Growing Companies 2018 list in March, 2018.
