86% of candidates now consider Glassdoor company reviews before accepting an interview or job offer, and Glassdoor has revealed this week, its 2023 Best Places to Work in the UK.

NFU Mutual, the only insurance company to make the top 50, was listed at no. 43. It’s an incredible achievement, especially as it was based entirely on the opinions of present and past employees.

Christian Sutherland-Wong, Glassdoor Chief Executive Officer said: “The past year brought extreme highs and lows for job seekers and employees. But despite an increasingly uncertain job market, Glassdoor data shows there are still companies hyper-focused on creating outstanding employee experiences. It's encouraging to see companies doubling down on employee mental health and wellbeing, diversity and inclusion, competitive benefits, and flexible work environments as we head into 2023. I sincerely congratulate all of the Best Places to Work winners.”

Trisha Jones, HR Director, commented: “In line with our objective to ‘Be a Great Place to Work’ we aim to provide an environment of inclusivity and diversity where our people can thrive. As a business, we work hard to create an environment where our people are attracted to join the organisation, can further develop their skills, and are fully engaged and empowered to make a difference. And this work will continue.”

“I’m thrilled that we’ve featured on the Glassdoor top 50 list. The fact that our employees have such a positive view of our culture and our investment in career development and leadership, is testament to our ongoing delivery against our clear business strategy.”

Heather Kitto, Head of Resourcing, added: “It’s great to see our employees supporting the business in the feedback they provide, I’m pleased and proud to see that our employees continue to think NFU Mutual is a great place to work. Glassdoor showcases what we offer at NFU Mutual, from career development opportunities, market leading projects and programme, rewards and benefits to great managers and a friendly, supportive team environment. During these turbulent times in the employment market, we’re really proud to be leading the insurance industry in being recognised as a Top 50 company to work for by Glassdoor.”
