PokerStars has been named as one of the best workplaces in the British Isles by The Great Place to Work Institute, the world’s largest consultancy specialising in workplace assessment and enhancement.
PokerStars was selected as one of the top 25 companies in the ‘Large Company’ category of the Institute’s annual survey which measures employee sentiment toward the companies they work for.
This is the second consecutive year that PokerStars has been named in the list.
Earlier this year PokerStars’ office in Costa Rica was named as one of the Best Workplaces in that country.
‘It’s an honour to be on the Great Place To Work Institute list of the UK’s Best Workplaces and it is a testament to the people-focus of our entire organisation,’ said Lynn Hunter, director of human resources at PokerStars.
‘Our commitment to being a great workplace starts at the executive level of our company and is reflected in every decision we make.’
Globally, 6,000 organisations around the world are surveyed, representing approximately 10 million employees.
PokerStars offices in both London and the Isle of Man were part of the analysis by The Great Place to Work Institute.
This process included surveying both employees and management to get a holistic view of the organisation’s HR policies and practices and how these are perceived by employees.
Tom O’Byrne, the chief executive of the Great Place to Work Institute said, ‘This year, we are delighted to recognise a record 80 organisations who have achieved the coveted status of Best Workplace, a workplace that has high trust and highly engaged employees. In the current economic climate, it has never been more crucial for organisations to recognise the importance of creating and maintaining great workplace cultures and understanding how this can improve performance.’
