Capgemini UK is officially one of UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing

14 Feb 2023

Capgemini UK has been named one of the UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing in 2023 by Great Place to Work®, the global authority on workplace culture.

Recognising the undeniable link between physical and mental  health, we take the responsibility to support our people seriously. Most recently, this has meant evolving our employee wellbeing offering to suit the new hybrid working patterns during and following the Covid-19 pandemic. For example, we have focused on providing our managers with training on how best to support their teams’ mental health remotely.

Here are a few ways that we support our people:

  • Talking Heads Employee Network: Our wellbeing Employee Network, Talking Heads, provides a space for everyone to discuss anything mental health or wellbeing related. It’s a space to connect, share, seek advice, and uplift each other.
  • Wellbeing Champions: We have more than 160 trained Wellbeing Champions across our UK business who are available to all employees. These dedicated Champions provide a friendly and trustworthy point of contact, enabling colleagues to speak about mental health concerns or life events in confidence. Their role is to listen and signpost to internal and external support, not make a professional or medical judgement.
  • Access to ‘Thrive’ app: We offer a confidential wellbeing app that helps build a growth mind-set, prevent and manage stress anxiety and other mental health conditions. It has a mood meter, relaxation techniques, a goal setting system, plus access to a thought trainer and more.

About the UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing list

We are delighted to be named one of the UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing in 2023. Capgemini UK was recognised with 19th place among the 46 Super Large Organisations assessed (those with 1,000+ employees).

To determine which employers made the list, Great Place to Work’s culture experts analysed thousands of employee surveys, assessing people’s holistic experiences of wellbeing at work. The surveys asked employees to comment on how their company supports their work-life balance, sense of fulfilment, job satisfaction, psychological safety and financial security. Evaluations also included an assessment of how well the organisation was able to deliver consistency of their employee experience across all departments and seniority levels.

Here’s what our people say about our workplace:

  • “The company really cares about employees’ wellbeing. When I mentioned that I was going through a difficult time to more senior colleagues, they supported me throughout and reached out to me frequently to ask how I was doing. There is also a great Employee Assistance Program where employees can speak to therapists for free.”
  • Capgemini “promotes a ‘family ethos’ where, as employees, we look out for each other and reach out to others in need.”
  • “Our leadership is not afraid to share their personal stories to their employees when dealing with difficult topics such as Mental Health or leadership vulnerability which is truly a brave and admirable thing to do.”

As Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work® UK explains: “At the heart of every organisation are its people and looking after their wellbeing should be much more than a package of impressive perks on a careers website. We know when employees feel genuinely contented and at ease within their roles, they are much more engaged and productive. Now in our second year of the UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing list, we’re once again able to showcase the leading organisations providing cultures conducive to outstanding psychological, physical and social wellbeing. A huge congratulations to Capgemini UK for making this prestigious list.”
