Mintra Recognised as one of the Best Places to Work in the UK by The Sunday Times

13 / 05 / 2024

Mintra proudly announces its inclusion among the prestigious ranks of The Sunday Times, powered by WorkL, Best Places to Work in the UK for 2024. Selected from 70,000 entries nationwide, Mintra has been named one of the winners of the Medium Organisation (50-249+ Employees) category, a recognition that reflects Mintra's commitment to fostering a positive and supportive workplace environment.

The annual Best Places to Work survey uses 26 questions from WorkL's employee engagement survey to analyse 70,000 organisations nationwide. To achieve a high overall engagement score, an organisation must excel across the six-step framework, evaluating areas such as Empowerment, Wellbeing, Job Satisfaction and Pride. Mintra's inclusion in this list underscores its dedication to cultivating a workplace culture where employees thrive and contribute meaningfully.

"We are thrilled to be recognised as one of the Best Places to Work in the UK," said Kevin Short, CEO of Mintra. "One of the main findings amongst this year's winners is the correlation between employees' happiness and success. The recent changes to our People and Culture department reflect our business ethos and commitment to employees' happiness. At Mintra, we believe that investing in our people is paramount, and the Sunday Times accolade reaffirms that we are on the right path."

Mintra's commitment to creating a supportive and inclusive workplace is reflected in the high scores gained in areas including respect, having a good working relationship with managers and feeling happy, satisfied and safe. Staff retention is at an all-time high, with only 17% considered a moving job risk, compared to an industry average of 42%.

Recent changes to the competency management system have seen more staff migrate internally on the career ladder or into other areas of the business that interest them. This adjustment reflects Mintra's dedication to prioritising employee well-being and building a culture of continuous improvement with a solid career framework and growth opportunities for all employees. High value is placed on celebrating people and acknowledging their unique contributions throughout and even after their time working there.

We will utilise the insights gained to drive improvement and foster continuous development within our organisation."
