Global sustainable development consultancy Arup has been honoured with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award - recognising the firm as one of the top ten Best Places to Work in the UK.

Positioned at #8, Arup is the only firm operating in the engineering and architecture sectors to make the top ten and is ranked alongside organisations including Bain & Company, Google and Mastercard.

The Employees’ Choice Awards programme, now in its ninth year in the UK, is based solely on the input of employees, who elect to provide feedback on their jobs, work environments and companies on Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest job and recruitment sites. Key workplace factors considered include career opportunities, compensation and benefits, culture and values, diversity and inclusion, senior management and work/life balance.

Christian Sutherland-Wong, Glassdoor Chief Executive Officer, said: “The past year brought extreme highs and lows for job seekers and employees, but despite an increasingly uncertain job market, Glassdoor data shows there are still companies hyper-focused on creating outstanding employee experiences. It's encouraging to see companies doubling down on employee mental health and wellbeing, diversity and inclusion, competitive benefits and flexible work environments as we head into 2023. I sincerely congratulate all of the Best Places to Work winners.”

Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work winners were determined using company reviews shared by UK-based employees between 19 October 2021 and 17 October 2022.
