Leading home assistance provider HomeServe has today been named as one of the top four companies in the UK for supporting its employees’ work-life balance.
Independent job website Glassdoor rated the Banbury-based firm behind only American Express, car dealership Lookers and travel website Expedia in the study, which was based on feedback and reviews from companies’ employees.
HomeServe’s work-life balance rating came out at 4.2 out of five – just 0.1 behind Expedia and ahead of international firms such as Google, Unilever, Proctor & Gamble and Rolls-Royce.
HomeServe membership CEO Greg Reed said: “Making HomeServe a great place to work year after year and ensuring that our people feel engaged to make a difference in our customers’ lives is a huge part of who we are. To appear in the top four of Glassdoor’s list for the second consecutive year is a sign that we are getting it right.
“Our people are right at the heart of everything we do. If we take care of our people, they take care of the customers and the rest takes care of itself. That’s why we strive to fulfil our ambition of being one of the best places to work in the UK.”
Glassdoor winners are ranked based on their overall work-life balance rating from employees in the UK during the past year. The website, which is one of the largest and fastest growing job sites in the world, has reviews and insights for approximately 700,000 companies in 190 countries.
In June, Glassdoor named HomeServe UK CEO Martin Bennett as the third highest rated CEO out of 24,000 companies in its Employees’ Choice Awards recognising the Highest Rated CEOs for 2017.
