A local Software-as-a-Service company has received two major employer accolades – official certification that it is not only a ‘Great Place to Work™’ but also one of the ‘2021 UK’s Best Workplaces™ in Tech’, as awarded by the Great Place to Work™ UK Institute.
Coleraine-based InsurTech Covernet achieved an outstanding score of 97 per cent, making it the highest ranked Northern Ireland company and fifth in the UK on the list of ‘2021 UK’s Best Workplaces™ in Tech’.
Globally, the Best Workplace™ survey is the largest survey of workplace cultures and people practices. The methodology that creates the various Best Workplace™ rankings is one of the most rigorous and highly sought after, and regarded as the ‘gold standard’ of employer awards.
The Institute captures valuable employee feedback using a research-driven Trust Index™ survey, alongside details about the programmes and practises that make the Covernet workplace unique.
Lee Stuart, Managing Director of Covernet said: “We are delighted to have been recognised as both a ‘Great Place to Work™’ and a ‘Best Workplace™ in Tech’ by Great Place to Work®.
“Our position on this prestigious list is driven by an annual people engagement survey which measures the extent to which everyone in the organisation reported a consistently great workplace experience, considering factors such as physical and mental wellbeing, fairness, camaraderie and trust in our leadership.
“Our people are at the heart of our business and as an organisation, we have a steadfast commitment to create an exceptional, high performing workplace where employees feel valued and supported every day.
“Thank you to everyone for helping us develop such a great workplace culture, particularly during the Covid-19 pandemic. We are extremely proud to be part of such a brilliant team”
Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work™ UK explains: “Technology is what has enabled the world of work to evolve with pace during the pandemic, and what will continue to push even more leaders to embrace new ways of working, no matter what their organisation’s size, location or industry.
“Those within the UK’s tech space who have actively prioritised building a positive employee experience and supported their people’s personal wellbeing are the ones we’re proud to celebrate.
“When Trust Index™ results are 65 per cent or higher, the organisation is Great Place to Work-Certified™. Covernet excelled in this regard, achieving an outstanding score of 97 per cent – a truly remarkable achievement and endorsement of Covernet’s commitment to its people and being a great workplace for all.”
The Great Place to Work Certification is valid for 12 months and Covernet will automatically be considered for placement on the annual Best Workplaces™ lists.
