The Best Workplaces in Consulting and Professional Serviceslist is created using the anonymous feedback from employees working in the industry about their workplace experience. These firms cover a diverse range of knowledge intensive roles, from legal services to management consultancy, engineering, marketing, and advertising, telecoms, real estate, recruitment, and travel management to name a few.

Great Place To Work® UK administered their research-backed Trust Index© employee survey and analysed the responses of UK-based consulting and professional services employees to determine the Best Workplaces™ list.  The surveys asked employees to comment on how their company supports their work-life balance, sense of fulfilment, job satisfaction, psychological safety and financial security. Evaluations also included an assessment of how well the organisation was able to deliver consistency of their employee experience across all departments and seniority levels.

Words from Oakleaf’s CEO & Founder, Richard Colgan:

“I’m extremely proud and humbled by this extraordinary accolade. 18 years ago, I had a vision of creating a recruitment business where people were allowed to be themselves and express themselves, at any stage in their careers. As a business we have all worked extremely hard to create and grow this cultural philosophy with a common sense of ownership of our shared purpose and values.

Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place To Work® UK said:

“While navigating this ever-changing landscape, the Best Workplaces in Consulting & Professional Services have galvanised their people proposition by placing employee wellbeing at the forefront of their company cultures – and enjoyed better business performance and staff retention as a result. It’s great to see so many examples of organisations making their workplaces truly ‘great’. A huge congratulations to Oakleaf for making one of our most prestigious lists.”
