July 20, 2022

A 4 day working week is just one of the reasons why employees at Venture Stream believe we are a great place to work

Newcastle Upon Tyne, 20th July 2022: The 2022 UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Women list was launched this morning by Great Place to Work® UK, recognising Venture Stream among 263 ranked organisations, ranked 16th overall in the Small Business category.

What this recognition confirms about Venture Stream:

  • Venture Stream is a great workplace FOR ALL, including women.
  • Venture Stream is an organisation where people trust each other and employees are able to reach their full human potential, no matter who they are or what they do.
  • Venture Stream supports the different identities women hold and ensure their daily experiences are positively and consistently experienced

Anonymous feedback from our most recent employee survey

“Empowering women in the workplace has long been a tenet of Venture Stream, and we’re pleased the results support this. Women take a key leadership role in our organisation, and we’re proud to pioneer policies that support all employees in striking the perfect balance of work and life.” said Andy Robinson, Chief Operating Officer of Venture Stream.

As Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work® UK, explains:

“Now in its fifth year, our 2022 list showcases the largest collection of Best WorkplacesTM for Women that the UK has ever recognised. These results are based on what women themselves have anonymously reported to us about their workplace experience and how well represented they are in the workforce and management.  Ensuring people aren’t discriminated against, placing positive value on our differences, creating fair access and advancement for all, and fostering a sense of value and empowerment in employees is what being a Great Place to Work® is all about. Only by first identifying the gaps in workers’ experiences can organisations truly take action to close them, which is why analysing employee experience is important. We are proud that the data and insights we provide organisations helps on that continuous journey – and it’s wonderful to celebrate so many Best Workplaces™ for Women this year, across all sectors and organisational sizes.”
