We’re delighted to announce that we’ve once again been recognised as one of the 2024 UK’s Best Workplaces™ by Great Place to Work® UK!

Following our annual employee engagement survey, BHP has officially ranked 58 among the 105 large organisations on the list.

Our ranking was revealed late last week, and these are the ‘gold standard’ of employer awards. Independently assessed through a rigorous and unique process, those on the list have proved they have created a great workplace culture built on trust, supported by innovative people management practices.

Feedback from our team

To compile the UK’s Best Workplaces™ List, Great Place To Work® analysed confidential employee survey feedback on trust and reaching their full human potential, as well as employees’ experiences of innovation, company values, and leadership effectiveness across departments and seniority levels. They then used these data insights to benchmark the effectiveness of companies’ employee value propositions against the culture their employees actually experience. Only those businesses who achieve the highest scores after evaluation receive Best Workplaces™ status.

From our anonymous employee feedback, we can see that overall, our team highly commends our dedication to ongoing learning, individual growth, and the culture of knowledge exchange across our business.

Building employee engagement
