Zurich UK has been awarded a Glassdoor Employers Choice award recognising it as one of the UK’s best places to work.

The Swindon-based organisation is the only insurer to features on the top 50 list, and is at number 16.

Now in its 14th year, the Employees’ Choice Award recognises employers who are rated highly by staff, and is based solely on the input of employees who choose to provide anonymous feedback about their job, work environment and employer on the Glassdoor website. 

High on the list of pluses cited by Zurich staff is work-life balance and flexible working options - and earlier this week, the insurer announced that demand for part-time jobs at Zurich had almost doubled since the launch of its flexible working approach in 2019.

One employee wrote: "Truly inspiring company, real work life balance for everyone, proper diversity and inclusive company, great benefits and pension."

Steve Collinson, Head of the People Team for Zurich in the UK, said:

“We’ve been working tirelessly for many years to make Zurich the best insurance company to work for. We’re delighted to see the fruits of our labour which has come straight from the people that really matter – our employees.” 

The Glassdoor site holds millions of personalised jobs, salary information, company reviews, and interview questions — all posted anonymously by employees and job seekers, and more than 55m people visit every month.
