Manchester, United Kingdom, 26th April 2023 – Havas Lynx Group has been recognised as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces™ (2023) today by Great Place to Work®, the global authority on workplace culture.
Havas Lynx Group’s approach and commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusivity (ED&I) is just one of the reasons why the company ranked 38 in the Large category and why employees love working for Havas Lynx Group. This is the first year the company has entered the awards so to be recognised in the UK’s Best Workplaces rankings is quite an achievement.
Some reasons behind why Havas Lynx Group has been ranked as an outstanding place to work includes:
- 95% of employees believing people are treated fairly regardless of their sexual orientation;
- 93% of employees believe people are treated fair regardless of their race;
- 92% of employees believe when joining the company, you are made to feel welcome
Employees have shared how the learning and development opportunities and the investment made by the company, through the Academy programme, has aided their professional and personal development. One employee disclosed how the time and space given by their line manager has allowed them to create a healthy work-life balance whilst completing their masters.
The collaborative nature and social culture are yet more reasons why Havas Lynx Group has been ranked, with employees sharing how they love the opportunity to meet other people through Havas Archway (the company’s entry-level programme), regular social activities, and charitable fundraising events.
Specialising in pharmaceutical and healthcare communications also means employees feel rewarded and are driven each day to make a difference to the lives of patients, healthcare professionals, and caregivers, globally.
“It’s no secret that our people are what make us so special.” Said Claire Knapp, CEO, Havas Lynx Group. “We’re thrilled to have ranked where we did – it’s testament to the wonderful individuals who make up Havas Lynx Group, and their tireless passion and ideas that ultimately creates an impact that matters. I’d love to take this moment to thank every single person at Lynx – they are what makes us a Great Place To Work.”
“We’re delighted that we’ve been named one of the top workplaces in the UK for 2023! It’s a great feeling to be recognised for the effort we’ve put into creating a positive work environment, and we’re truly grateful.” Said Aimee Stapleton, People Director, Havas Lynx Group. “Our achievements are always a result of our amazing people and dedicated teams, and we are really excited to carry on enhancing the employee experience and making Havas Lynx Group an even better place to work!”
“As the global authority on workplace culture, our mission at Great Place to Work® has always been to build a better world by helping organisations become a great place to work for all. We strongly believe in the notion of ‘better for business, better for people, better for the world,” said Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work® UK. “Best Workplaces™ consistently put people first – not just in terms of looking out for their own employees, but also by caring for and supporting their surrounding community and environment. We’re incredibly proud to recognise the very best ‘For All’ organisations committed to equity and unfaltering in ensuring that all employees are empowered to deliver the right strategic solutions to ever-changing business opportunities and challenges.”
A great workplace is more than lavish perks, fancy parties, and amazing benefits. While those elements are present in many Best Workplace™ organisations, at its core a great workplace is about the level of trust that employees experience in their leaders, the level of pride they have in their jobs; and the extent to which they experience camaraderie with their colleagues.
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 2023 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.
Those businesses who achieve the highest scores after evaluation receive Best Workplaces™ status.
