We are delighted to announce that Yext has been awarded as a centre for Excellence in Wellbeing by Great Place to Work®.
The Excellence in Wellbeing award reflects Yext’s dedication to the wide range of elements that contribute to our Yexters’ wellbeing in and out of the workplace. These include everything from diversity, communication, transparency, flexibility, work-life balance and sustainability.
The award has recognised our efforts to ensure that a real culture of wellbeing is embedded in our core. Some standout initiatives that have played a big part in this include Empower (our women-focused employee resource group aimed at tackling the gender pay gap), bi-weekly massages, vouchers for fitness classes and wellbeing sessions, paid volunteering days and our global sustainability group.
Thrilled by the news, Jon Buss, Managing Director UK and Northern Europe, said: “We’re excited to have been recognised by Great Place to Work yet again. Our people are our biggest asset and it’s only by ensuring they are put first that we can create our fun and dynamic “think big, learn fast and get stuff done” culture.
“The list – which celebrates UK employers that are leading in workplace wellbeing – is a benchmarking tool for employers and so we are honoured to be awarded for our commitment to wellbeing. Our employees sit at the heart of our mission and we’ll continue to strive to create a place of work that our people love.”
This marks the second award Yext UK has received for Excellence in Wellbeing, as well as being recognised as a Great Place to Work for the past two years. Yext UK hopes to feature on the Great Place to Work Medium-Sized businesses list, which will be announced on the 29th of April 2020.
Recognition as a centre for ‘Excellence in Wellbeing’ is dependent on employees completing the Great Place to Work® Wellbeing Index survey designed to measure the levels of wellbeing in the workplace. Comprising 17 statements of personal perceptions, the survey seeks employees’ experiences and views on the six key dimensions that underpin wellbeing: Work environment, Financial security, Mental and physical health, Interpersonal relationships, Work-life balance and Fulfilment at work.
