Best places to work: Software company receives award for workplace happiness

21 May 2024

For the second successive year, Henry Schein One UK has been listed as one of the UK’s top employers in the Sunday Times ‘Best Places to Work 2024’.

The Sunday Times Best Places to Work survey, powered by employee experience specialists WorkL, uses 26 questions to accurately reflect engagement and wellbeing in the workplace. Recognition is given to those companies that achieve strict overall employee response and engagement scores.

The survey concluded that the country’s leading employers are those who successfully create a balanced blend of personal and professional needs.

Henry Schein One UK said it attracts talent with an enlightened attitude to employment, which recognises that the strength of a team is determined by collaboration and transparency. This approach includes allowing individuals to choose either remote or hybrid working and encourages charitable work by giving staff two paid days per year to explore such endeavours.

Henry Schein One UK achieved notable scores across all six key drivers of employee engagement and workplace happiness, including reward and recognition, instilling pride, information sharing, empowerment, wellbeing, and job satisfaction.

Helen Kaye, vice president of human resources, expressed her pride, “I am delighted that Henry Schein One UK has been accredited in the ‘Sunday Times Best Places to Work 2024’ programme, making it two years in a row! This is a testament to the great people within our organisation and all the hard work they put into building the culture that we have today. This level of achievement only happens when we all act together as one great team.”
