As announced by the UKGC, Great Place to Work highlighted the gambling authority’s embracing of new working practices and inclusive culture. The workplace culture specialist furthermore praised the UKGC for always prioritizing teamwork and ensuring the well-being of its workers.

Great Place to Work also lauded the regulator’s efforts in supporting “Dignity at work” and treating its staff with respect for their values, qualities and differences, the UKGC pointed out.

For reference, Great Place to Work performed “rigorous evaluations” of hundreds of employee survey responses to compile its 2024 UK’s Best Workplaces list. The UKGC took the 87th spot in the large company size category. That list was topped by ServiceNow, NVIDIA and Braze.

According to the UKGC, this new certification highlights the regulator’s employee-oriented company culture and the positive responses of its existing staff. The accolade demonstrates that the British gambling regulator has created a workplace that “fosters trust, fairness, respect and camaraderie among its employees,” the official statement added.

Andrew Rhodes, chief executive officer of the UKGC, commented on the matter, saying that his team feels honored to be a part of the UK’s Best Workplaces list. The regulator’s team was thrilled when it first made it onto the list a year ago and is bullish on maintaining and improving its standards.

Since the first time the UKGC appeared on the list, its team has been working hard to maintain its momentum. Rhodes explained:

Our mission has been to build on that success, but we know that isn’t easy to achieve and wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work and dedication from all colleagues here at the Commission.
