We are, again, so proud that Powerforce has been recognised as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Women. This is the second year running that we have been recognised, one of only 55 companies in the UK to achieve this status.
We work hard to make sure Powerforce is a great workplace for all, especially women. Recently we have implemented enhancements to our maternity pay, as well as paternity pay, and will continue to look for ways to drive engagement and strengthen our workplace culture.
Nicky Sanderson, Managing Director at Powerforce, commenting on the award said “I’m delighted that we have received this recognition for the second consecutive year. People are at the heart of our business and, as a business, we make sure that Powerforce is a ‘great place to work’ not just for women, but for any gender. Women continue to make up the majority of senior roles within the business, playing a large part in helping to shape who we are as a company.”
Ben Gautrey, Great Place to Work® Managing Director commented: “We are delighted to recognise so many great organisations in the second year of our Best Workplaces™ for Women award list. The issues affecting women in the workplace, particularly parity of pay and advancement opportunities, continue to be important topics. We are proud that, thanks to this ranking and the insights afforded by our successful organisations, we are able to add to the conversation and help raise awareness of the importance of fairness around pay, recognition, training and development opportunities and work/life balance. What our Best Workplaces™ for Women clearly show is the positive impact their practices have on business. As a result, they are better able to attract and retain women of talent, encouraging them to develop professionally and personally and in turn contribute exponentially to the success of the organisations they work for.”
