Grant Thornton named one of the best places to work in 2017

Leading business and financial adviser Grant Thornton UK LLP has been recognised as one of the best places to work in the Glassdoor Employees' Choice Awards.

On Glassdoor, current and former employees of companies worldwide can share insights and opinions about their work environments through a company review. Employees are asked to rate their satisfaction with the company overall, and key workplace factors such as career opportunities, compensation, benefits, work/life balance, senior management, as well as culture and values.

The Best Places to Work are determined using company reviews shared by UK-based employees between November 2, 2015 and October 30, 2016.

Commenting on the award Sacha Romanovitch, CEO at Grant Thornton UK LLP, said: “We are very proud to have been named as one of the best places to work in the UK. As society has moved from the industrial age it’s essential that business also moves on, away from the self-interested hierarchical model of management to the creation of collaborative networks where people feel motivated and inspired to be at their best.

“18 months ago we started on our journey to create a purpose led business with a shared enterprise culture that helps unlock the potential of all our people through sharing ideas and taking personal responsibility for the change they want to see. This feedback direct from our people shows that we are certainly moving in the right direction. While there will of course be hurdles, I am confident that working together the great people we have in this business will be able to overcome them and I am excited to see what the future holds.”

Grant Thornton was also recently named one of the 50 'World's most attractive global employers' by Universum.
