Glassdoor – the world’s most influential workplace ratings platform – has announced its annual list of the best places to work in 2024, and we’re on it! According to the prestigious list, Equal Experts is the 4th best place to work in the UK, with 99% recommending us. In celebrating the news, we want to share what it is that makes some of the best software consultants in the country want to work with us – and why they stay.
People find a home at Equal Experts
This is just one of the many positive reviews posted on Glassdoor, but it perfectly sums up what Equal Experts aims to provide for the people in our network:
“Fantastic place to work! – I love working at EE, I feel I can be totally myself. The work is engaging, the people are wonderful, it’s a really collaborative environment and they do live their values.”
CEO Thomas de Cad’oro Granier says that his initial goal for the business was to create a haven where both IT expert practitioners and customers could work together, focusing on long term mutual value instead of one-sided short term gain. This review describes very well how that’s been achieved:
“I found a home – Equal Experts is, as far as my experience goes, a very unique organisation. Many organisations talk about values, but EE really do believe in, and enact their values every day. It is a place where seasoned practitioners come together as equals, in an environment of respect, and do their best work. There are so many opportunities and you have a huge amount of autonomy.”
This is an organisation of grown-ups where we trust at scale so that our people can determine the right thing for our customers whilst learning from other highly experienced consultants. Here’s what they say about our organisation:
“Decisions are made on what’s best for the client, associates, employees & the business – not driven by profit”
“The company is full of people who are the top of their game within their field, so you never stop learning & progressing.”
We’re continuously learning
One of the quotes that really sums up our values talks about how “failing is OK and valued”. We love that our people know this, because it speaks to the fact that – although we are Experts – we never imagine that we’ve finished the job of learning. Our customers know that we don’t have all the answers when we come to a job; our goal is always to find the most appropriate solution together, in a culture of continuous innovation. This review describes our approach:
“The [business] model… is smart and successful and means they can roll teams in and out and change their size and focus very quickly. They actually are an agile Agile consultancy.”
As one reviewer says, Equal Experts is
We want to thank everyone who has worked with Equal Experts – employees and ex-employees, associates and alumni, our partners from different organisations and, of course, our customers – for making us the 4th best place to work in the UK!
