Sky Betting & Gaming has been honoured with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, recognising the Best Places to Work in 2018.
The Employees’ Choice Awards, now in its fourth year in the UK, relies solely on the input of employees who elect to provide feedback on their jobs, work environments and companies via Glassdoor.
Sky Betting & Gaming is ranked as the number one betting and gaming company in the UK and the first ever to make the list. It is also now a top seven UK tech company, placing it alongside Google, Expedia and Facebook. The company achieved 17th best place to work overall in the rankings.
Rob Painter, Managing Director of People and Brand at Sky Bet said: “We’re delighted to receive this recognition from Glassdoor. It demonstrates what a thriving location Leeds is for people working in fast-growth tech companies and that we are building a great culture for developing exceptional careers within a betting and gaming company.”
Robert Hohman, Glassdoor CEO and Co-Founder commented: “We know today’s job seekers are more informed than ever about where they go to work, researching everything from company culture to career opportunities to pay philosophy and more. To help people find companies that stand out from the pack, the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards recognise employers that are truly Best Places to Work because they’re determined by those who really know best – the employees.
“Employers where employees love to work continue to prove that they have a recruiting and business performance advantage. We’re proud to celebrate the 2018 winners as we mark our tenth anniversary of the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards.”
On Glassdoor, current and former employees of companies worldwide can share insights and opinions about their work environments by sharing a company review, designed to capture a genuine and authentic inside look at what it’s like to work at particular jobs and companies. When sharing a company review on Glassdoor, employees are asked to rate their satisfaction with the company overall, and key workplace factors like career opportunities, compensation, benefits, work/life balance, senior management, as well as culture and values. In addition, employees are asked to describe the best reasons to work at their companies as well as any downsides.
The Best Places to Work are determined using company reviews shared by UK based employees between 1st November, 2016 and 22nd October 2017. To be considered, a company must have at least 1,000 or more employees and have received at least 30 ratings across eight workplace attributes from UK-based employees during the period of eligibility. The final list is compiled based on Glassdoor’s proprietary algorithm, and takes into account quantity, quality and consistency of reviews.
