Great Place To Work

Havas Lynx awarded UK’s Best Workplaces™ recognition for second consecutive year


For the second consecutive year, Havas Lynx has officially been named as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces™ 2024 by Great Place To Work®, the global authority on workplace culture. The company ranked 63rd in the Top 100 large companies list.

It follows 12-months of focus for the agency, working to improve employee experience and development. To help employees achieve their full potential, it has enhanced its leading learning and development programme, The Academy, expanding the variety of sessions available throughout the year.

To further improve the employee experience and job focus, it has also redeveloped job descriptions and changed the way it conducts performance reviews ensuring feedback is continuous and structured, allowing employees to take away actionable objectives.

At the end of 2023, the agency introduced its first Trans and Non-binary Policy in a commitment to creating a working environment everyone feels safe to come to every day.

Notable reasons why Havas Lynx has been ranked as a Great Place To Work are:

  • 97% of people feel they are treated fairly, regardless of their sexual orientation.
  • 94% of people said that when you join the company, you are made to feel welcome.
  • 91% of people feel they are treated fairly, regardless of their sex.

Claire Knapp, CEO at Havas Lynx, said: “It has been a huge 12-months of focus for us, looking to improve on last year’s already strong scores. We’re thrilled to have ranked for the second consecutive year in the Top 100 list.

“It’s no secret that our people drive not just our success, but our culture and what we stand for as an agency. The passion we have to produce impact that matters shines through and glues us all together. I couldn’t be prouder to see Havas Lynx recognised this way and look forward to continuing to look for where and how we can improve – always more to be done.”

Aimee Stapleton, People Director at Havas Lynx, said: “We’re delighted to have been named a Great Place to Work for the second consecutive year. We’ve worked hard over the last 12 months to take on board feedback from last year’s survey and these results are a testament to that along with the hard work and dedication of our Lynxers.”

Congratulations to Havas Lynx 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.
