San Francisco and London– October 12 , 2022 – Algolia, the leading API-First Platform for Search & Discovery, has been recognized as a Great Place to Work by employees as anonymously reported about their work experience in a survey. In this survey, Algolia’s employees cited the company’s core values, colleagues, perks, and management as reasons for it being a Great Place To Work. This marks Algolia’s first year being named to this exclusive UK list.
“In today's workplace, great companies focus on how we work together and the culture versus the model of the past that emphasized where we work. As such, we believe in prioritizing career journeys, collaboration with team members from all over the world with diverse perspectives and experiences and finding ways to celebrate the people behind the work.” said Lorena Scott, Chief People Officer, of Algolia. “Creating a great work place is now about the holistic experience and we are excited to be re-imagining that at Algolia, and as we continue to expand our business in Europe, we are thrilled to be named a Great Place To Work in the UK as it is a testament to our team and their commitment to our company’s core values.”
A Great Place To Work certification is the most definitive "employer-of-choice" recognition and is acknowledged worldwide as a global benchmark for identifying outstanding employee experiences. Every year, more than 10,000 companies across 60 countries are reviewed to become a Great Place To Work. A Trust Index survey is used to hear directly from employees from submitting companies to gather honest thoughts about their employer.
“Now in its fifth year, our 2022 list showcases the largest collection of Best Workplaces in Tech that the UK has ever recognized,” said Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work UK. “These results are based on what employees working in the technology industry have anonymously reported to us about their workplace experience. In a fast and ever-evolving industry, these organizations are at the forefront of ensuring employees have the right environment to thrive, they are focused on providing positive work experiences, they value diversity, differences and better ways of doing things and, importantly, are investing in effective leadership to ensure continuous growth. A huge congratulations to Algolia for making one of our most prestigious lists.”
