Britain’s top 15 tech sector employers revealed
Apple has been rated the best tech business to work for in the UK by Indeed.
The recruitment website attributed Apple’s success to good pay rates, workplace culture and a number of employee perks, including discounts on tech and wellness benefits.
The data was based on thousands of reviews by past and present employees for tech companies. Of the top 15, three of the companies were British – GDS Group, RS Components and Just Eat. US-based tech firms dominated with nine companies making the list.
The Bristol-based events, research and tech services firm GDS Group was ranked second, and global IT and cybersecurity company Cisco came third. Other brands that operate in B2B within the list included IBM, Oracle, Siemens, Ricoh, and RS Components.
Bill Richards, UK managing director at Indeed, said: “As employment hovers near a record high in the UK, companies need to offer more than just a competitive salary and with its generous perks and flexible work conditions, the tech sector is often an outlier when it comes to employee packages. But it’s not enough for tech employers to bask in the reflected glow and hope would-be recruits will line up to work for them. Intense competition for candidates with specialist tech skills has sparked a battle for talent and prompted many employers to think carefully and creatively about their offers.”
