Midlands-based water company Severn Trent has been recognised as one of the Best Places to work by Glassdoor.

The FTSE 100 Company was number 44 in the rankings, and honoured with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award. 

Neil Morrison, Human Resources Director at Severn Trent, said: “It’s a fantastic honour to be named one of the best places to work, as here at Severn Trent we really value our people. We work hard to create an awesome place to work.

“Without our employees we wouldn’t be able to deliver a brilliant service for our customers so, with that in mind, we aim to create a fantastic environment for our teams, and to focus on areas that matter the most to them so they have a great working environment.”

Severn Trent employs over 6,000 people across its whole region, which covers the Midlands, down into the South West to the outskirts in Bristol and up into the peak district and just south of Sheffield.

The company was honoured as one of the top places to work alongside other companies such as Apple and Google, thanks to employee-based reviews collected by employee review site, Glassdoor.

“Not only is it great to be named as one of the best places to work, it’s an even better feeling knowing that it’s down to our very own people who have reviewed us so highly,” adds Neil. “We understand there’s always room for improvement and we’ll continue to work hard to make positive changes and improvements to our employees’ work life, so we can be strive to do even better next year.”

Dr. Andrew Chamberlain, Glassdoor Chief Economist, said: “In today’s tight labour market, job seekers are in the driver’s seat when it comes to deciding where to work and they want to know the inner workings of a company before accepting a new job. 

“To help people find the best jobs and the best companies, the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards recognise employers at the top of their game. For employers, we know that a satisfied and engaged workforce helps drive financial performance. Glassdoor Best Places to Work winners are strategically investing in company culture, career growth opportunities and more, which also serves as a major recruiting advantage.”
