PEN Named ‘the Best Workplace for Wellbeing’ and a UK ‘Great Place to Work’ in 2022


Once again, we’re very excited to announce that the Great Place to Work Awards™ has recognised us as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces in its 2022 report.

We’ve been named as the UK’s Best Workplace for Wellbeing ™ in the ‘Small Business’ category, ranking number one.

PEN also finished 4th in the UK’s Best Workplaces 2022 report in the Small Organisations Category.

This year, the Great Place to Work Awards ™ have focused on organisations that are delivering more than just a package of impressive perks. As workplace wellbeing continues to shift and evolve, the awards celebrate companies like PEN who create progressive and supportive environments that help team members be their best unique selves.

As well as acknowledging our focus on fostering a great culture, our work on diversity and inclusion, and our emphasis on a healthy work/life balance, they acknowledged our ability to support, encourage and motivate each other, while enjoying ourselves both in and outside of the office.

The health and wellbeing of our people is extremely important to us, more so in uncertain times. As well as the ongoing support of our mentoring scheme and the general support we provide to each other as part of a close-knit team, we've developed other measures to keep our team connected even when we're apart, including guidance to stay mentally fit and healthy.

We’re therefore delighted that 100% of respondents for the UK wellbeing awards said there was a feeling of ‘family’ and ‘team’ in our organisation, and 100% of employees said they feel they can make a difference here at PEN. We also achieved 100% positive scores for fair treatment of team members regardless of race or sexual orientation, and it’s something we’re immensely proud of.

We are thrilled to have received such positive feedback across the board, with 100% of our employees saying they would strongly recommend PEN to friends and family as a great place to work for the second year running.

We know none of this would be possible without the dedication, hard work and genuine enthusiasm of our wonderful team members. We’d therefore like to give a huge thank you to every single employee and associate for getting us where we are today.

We look forward to making PEN a great place to work in 2023 and beyond!
