Wongs Jewellers based in Liverpool city centre 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 awards were officially announced last night at the prestigious Best Workplaces Awards held at London’s Grosvenor House and hosted by Comedian Katherine Ryan.

100% of the Wongs Team said this was a great place to work compared to the national average of just 54% – an outstanding result for the Liverpool Independent.

Cynthia Cartwright, Commercial Director expressed her enthusiasm about the achievement, stating:

“What a moment – to be named one of the best small businesses in the UK – WOW – this acknowledgment reflects our ongoing commitment to fostering a positive and inclusive culture that empowers our employees to thrive both personally and professionally”

Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place To Work® UK said:

“At Great Place To Work® our overarching goal has consistently been to enrich the world of work by empowering companies to evolve into exceptional organisations that cater to everyone. We wholeheartedly endorse the idea that what’s ‘better for business’ aligns with what’s ‘better for people,’ ultimately contributing to a better world For All™”

“Year after year, it’s truly inspiring to witness a growing number of organisations earn a spot on our UK’s Best Workplaces™ List, we’ve seen our client’s Trust Index scores increasing meaning the bar for being on this List getting higher. This recognition is no mean feat and highlights companies across the UK that excel in fostering high levels of trust in leadership, instilling pride in their workforce, and cultivating strong camaraderie among colleagues. These crucial elements collectively contribute to creating workplaces where employees feel they can truly be themselves and thrive in a supportive environment. Congratulations to Wongs Jewellers 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.
