SGI ranked 68th in the brand new UK's Best Workplaces for Development List.

This accreditation has been officially announced by Great Place to Work UK®, who recognize companies that make employee development a core part of their culture.


Best Workplace for Development Criteria

The listed workplaces offer employees the chance to better themselves, learn new skills, and progress within the organisation. By being included in the list, the companies have demonstrated that they understand that development is not one-size-fits-all, and they actively support every single employee in undertaking their own tailored journey of growth. Because of this, their people are fuelled by a sense of purpose, feel valued by their employer, and give their best to the organisation. 

SGI's inclusion on this exclusive list officially acknowledges the ongoing commitment to development, innovation, and employee growth. Over the past year, many new benefits/procedures/ policies were introduced to solidify employee development commitment, including The SGI Academy, Dedicated Strategy Sessions, On Desk Coaching, Intro to Management, and Vector training for promotion success. 

All employees have a dedicated learning and development path to ensure they are on track to reach their goals and progress in their careers. 


How We Got Here

"Learning plays a vital part in our employee value proposition, which is essential to the progress and growth of our team. We instill learning at the center of what we do, ensuring that our teams have the right mix of experience and knowledge sharing. This approach has helped new starters discover their potential and empower experienced staff to evolve as leaders within the company. I'm genuinely proud of the environment we have cultivated here, and this recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of everyone here who makes it an exceptional place to work and grow"

- Lawerence Hargreaves (Co-Founder of SGI) 


"Employee training and development isn't just about teaching employees to do their jobs. It's about showing employees they are valued and that there is a path of progression available. When employees don't see opportunity, they don't bring their best selves to work and productivity and retention will be adversely impacted,"

- Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place To Work® UK.  

"Employee development is future-focused and evidences a commitment to employee's long-term growth. It ensures your people feel valued, and feeds into the overall company culture and strategy. Each year, we recognise organisations whose thriving workplace cultures are enabling both their people and their business to flourish. Opportunities for learning and development are a crucial element of this success, which is why we're so thrilled to be recognising this year, for the very first time, the UK's Best Workplaces for Development. 


"Congratulations to SGI for being part of our 2024 UK's Best Workplaces for Development List." 

To compile the UK's Best Workplaces for Development List, Great Place To Work® reviewed each company's culture, benefits, and approach to leadership and development alongside anonymous employee responses. These data insights are then used to benchmark each company's employee value proposition against the culture employees actually experience. Only the businesses that achieve the highest scores after evaluation receive Best Workplaces™ status. 


"The continued support from directors and superiors is very helpful"
