SAS recognised as one of the 2021 UK Best WorkplacesTM

Fifth consecutive year of recognition by employees and Great Place to Work®

SAS, the leader in analytics, is one of the UK’s best places to work according to the latest ranking published by Great Place to Work® UK. SAS achieved 14th place in the ‘large company’ category, for businesses with 251-1,000 employees.

This is the fifth consecutive year that SAS has been recognised as one of UK’s best places to work. The rankings are based on the findings of a robust employee survey and a thorough assessment of policies and practices by Great Place to Work®.

SAS is among the 183 UK-based organisations recognised by its employees as an organisation that promotes a healthy workplace culture through trust, pride and camaraderie. The survey had an 84% completion rate by SAS employees and a Trust Index of 85%, evidence of SAS’ commitment to creating the best employee experience and a high level of employee engagement.

“I am extremely proud of all our employees who contribute on a daily basis to making SAS a great place to work,” said Roderick Crawford, VP & Country Manager, SAS UK & Ireland. “We are always looking to improve our employee engagement so everyone can feel like they are an important part of the organisation.

“It has been noticeable how employees have successfully embraced working remotely and continued to work collaboratively during the COVID-19 pandemic. We're delighted they feel appreciated and supported, and we look forward to welcoming everyone back to our offices soon.”

Understanding the perspective of employees is key to building a successful workplace environment. To determine an organisation’s ranking, Great Place to Work® administers their comprehensive employee survey which represents three-quarters of an organisation’s final score. The remaining quarter of the score comes from the Culture Audit® - a business-driven questionnaire that uncovers and evaluates the organisation's HR and leadership practices, policies and culture.
