SAS recognised as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces in Tech for 2021

SAS, the leader in analytics, is one of the best places to work in tech, according to the latest ranking published by Great Place to Work® (GPTW). SAS achieved a position of #11 in the ‘large company’ category, for organisations with 251-1,000 employees.

The company works hard to promote an atmosphere of creativity and value, so that employees feel empowered and strive to find the right answers for customers. CEO Jim Goodnight believes that the company’s attitude can be summed up in the maxim ‘treat employees like they make a difference, and they will’.

SAS has previously been named in the main UK Best Workplaces™  and it’s position on this prestigious list is driven by an annual employee engagement survey which measured the extent to which everyone across the organisation reported a consistently great workplace experience, considering factors such as physical and mental wellbeing, fairness, camaraderie, and trust in the leadership.

“We’re delighted to once again feature in the GPTW ranking for large tech companies,” said Roderick Crawford, VP & Country Manager, SAS UK & Ireland. “We know that it continues to be challenging for all organisations and their employees, as we hopefully start to emerge from the pandemic. We’ve made sure we keep employees fully informed about our approach as they start to return to the office and we’ve also tried to ensure that, even in what remains a largely virtual working environment, we are promoting employee wellbeing, encouraging regular online catch-ups among colleagues and creating a positive culture of recognition and appreciation.”

Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work® UK, said. “In this fourth year of recognising UK’s Best Workplaces™ in Tech, many of these firms experienced rapid growth, but never lost sight of their values. They maintained their mantra of ‘putting people first’, often finding innovative and creative solutions to drive their great workplace culture remotely. We hope that by highlighting our Tech list recipients, other employers will be encouraged to make changes to their own people strategy and ensure people remain at the heart of their business policies, practices and programmes for a consistently great employee experience for all.”
