These 14 Companies Have The Best Cultures and Values in the UK

You may have heard the phrase “company culture” before, but never given much thought to what it means. In essence, company culture encapsulates a company’s personality—how it feels about and treats its employees, what it values, and even what it offers. In other words, company culture can be the difference between working somewhere you love—a place that doesn’t feel like work—and a place you loathe to be. So that you could find workplaces with work cultures so cool they don’t feel like work, we rounded up 14 companies with stellar culture and values ratings, as assessed by their employees. And these companies are hiring!
