Wongs Jewellers - Awarded UK’s Best Workplaces™ Recognition!

Wongs Jewellers is proud to announce that we have been named among the top 100 in the UK’s Best Workplaces™ 2024 List by Great Place To Work. 

Our ranking was revealed at the prestigious UK’s Best Workplaces™ Awards at Grovesnor House in the heart of London, which are considered the ‘gold standard’ of employer awards. Independently assessed through a rigorous and unique process, those on the list have proved they have created a great workplace culture built on trust, supported by innovative people management practices.

Achieving our position in the small category fills us with pride as we're officially acknowledged for our commitment to inclusion, quality, and growth.

To compile the UK’s Best Workplaces™ List, Great Place To Work® analysed confidential employee survey feedback on trust and reaching their full human potential, as well as employees’ experiences of innovation, company values, and leadership effectiveness across departments and seniority levels. They then used these data insights to benchmark the effectiveness of companies' employee value propositions against the culture their employees actually experience. Only those businesses who achieve the highest scores after evaluation receive Best Workplaces™ status.

From our anonymous employee feedback, we can see that overall our team highly commends our dedication to ongoing learning, individual growth, and the culture of knowledge exchange across our business.

A quote from the Wongs Jewellers Trust Index™ Survey, ‘Wongs is a fantastic employer, always thinking about the team. We are all treated well and feel part of the family business. We are all encouraged to be ourselves, let our personalities shine and contribute to the business. Wongs really look after the staff and their needs.’

Cynthia Cartwright, Commercial Director expressed her enthusiasm about the achievement, stating, ‘What a moment – to be named one of the best small businesses in the UK – WOW – this acknowledgment reflects our ongoing commitment to fostering a positive and inclusive culture that empowers our employees to thrive both personally and professionally."

“At Great Place To Work® our overarching goal has consistently been to enrich the world of work by empowering companies to evolve into exceptional organisations that cater to everyone. We wholeheartedly endorse the idea that what's 'better for business' aligns with what's 'better for people,' ultimately contributing to a better world For All™" said Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place To Work® UK.

“Year after year, it's truly inspiring to witness a growing number of organisations earn a spot on our UK’s Best Workplaces™ List, we’ve seen our client’s Trust Index scores increasing meaning the bar for being on this List getting higher. This recognition is no mean feat and highlights companies across the UK that excel in fostering high levels of trust in leadership, instilling pride in their workforce, and cultivating strong camaraderie among colleagues. These crucial elements collectively contribute to creating workplaces where employees feel they can truly be themselves and thrive in a supportive environment. Congratulations to Wongs Jewellers for being part of our 2024 UK’s Best Workplaces™ List."
Peter Wong, Managing Director of Wongs Jewellers, also shared his thoughts on the accomplishment, saying, " We are delighted to be recognised as a Great Place to Work, but to receive the news that we are now recognised as one of the BEST small businesses in the UK is a truly wonderful feeling and underlines our dedication to providing an environment where talent is nurtured and innovation is embraced.
