Wpromote Wins Glassdoor Employee's Choice Award, One of the Top 50 Best Places to Work in 2022

Glassdoor | January 15, 2022

Wpromote was named one of the top 50 Best Places to Work in 2022 and awarded a Glassdoor Employees' Choice Award across all industries in the U.S. small and medium company category. The 14th annual Employees' Choice Award is based solely on elective, anonymous employee feedback about their job, work environment, and employer on Glassdoor, the worldwide leader on insights about jobs and companies.

We don't believe great work is possible without a supportive culture that prioritizes a strong-work life balance, Our people are the driving force behind our success as an organization and what we can achieve for our clients, and continuing to improve the way we work through employee feedback is a top focus. As a leader, this should be a no-brainer: a better work culture and investment in our employees' growth means people are more willing to try new things, take risks, and unlock their full potential.

- Wpromote CEO Mike Mothner

Between pandemic disruption, "The Great Resignation," and a hyper-competitive job market, both retention and talent acquisition are particularly challenging for organizations across every industry. Marketing agencies in particular have struggled to retain employees. But 95% of reviewers on Glassdoor are willing to recommend Wpromote to a friend because investment in workplace improvement and culture is not a brand new priority and is constantly evolving based on multiple employee feedback mechanisms, including an annual employee engagement survey.

On Glassdoor, current and former employees voluntarily and anonymously share insights and opinions about their work environments by sharing a company review, designed to capture a genuine and authentic inside look at what a specific job may be like at a particular company.

"The world of work is rapidly evolving, fueled by the pandemic and now millions of workers reevaluating their expectations from employers. This year's Best Places to Work winners are leading the way by listening and responding to employee feedback and reimagining the employee experience to truly put their people first, It's inspiring to see these employers step up during the pandemic to expand and grow company cultures where employees feel supported and valued in and out of work. Congratulations to all of this year's Employees' Choice Award winners."

- Christian Sutherland-Wong, Glassdoor chief executive officer.

Glassdoor's Best Places to Work were determined using company reviews shared by U.S.-based employees between October 20, 2020 and October 18, 2021. To be considered for the U.S. small and medium company category, a company must have had fewer than 1,000 employees and have received at least 30 ratings across each of the nine workplace attributes (overall company rating, career opportunities, compensation and benefits, culture and values, diversity and inclusion, senior management, work-life balance, recommend to a friend and six-month business outlook) taken into account as part of the awards algorithm. The final list is compiled using Glassdoor's proprietary algorithm, led by its Economic Research Team, and takes into account quantity, quality and consistency of reviews.

U.K. Essential Services Provider Selects UKG to Support Rapid Growth, Empower Its 10,000-Employee Workforce

UKG | May 21, 2022

UKG, a leading provider of HR, payroll, and workforce management solutions for all people, announced today that M Group Services, one of the largest essential infrastructure services organizations in the U.K. and Ireland, has selected UKG Dimensions to support its rapid growth and provide a more transparent and empowering employee experience. M Group Services employs more than 10,000 skilled specialists and provides services within the water, energy, transport, and telecommunications sectors. With 240 locations, 19 operating businesses, and continued growth by acquisition, the organization sought a flexible workforce management solution to support its complex and highly remote workforce as well as improve productivity and operational efficiency. “We have a mix of salaried and hourly employees, including meter readers, utility workers, field systems technicians, and engineers — many who work offsite each day. There’s also a lot of complexity in our business and how we pay people based on the type of work they do, For years, we’ve relied on spreadsheets to capture the hours our employees work, which has proved to be a cumbersome and inaccurate operation. Dimensions will automate those processes to ensure we’re getting the data right and paying our people correctly. Dimensions will empower our people to be in control of their time by allowing them to record their hours directly in the system, In turn, that will give us much-needed, real-time visibility into labor hours so we can charge clients correctly and ensure every employee paycheck is accurate.” -Colin Jellicoe, group human resources director at M Group Services. A key driver for the organization’s selection of Dimensions is the ability to integrate with the company’s payroll solution, which M Group Services estimates will save more than $1 million in administrative costs. Jellicoe added that the Dimensions mobile app will deliver a more transparent and engaging experience for all employees, which is critically important to the organization. M Group Services believes the increase in employee engagement will result in an increase in retention. About UKG At UKG, our purpose is people. As strong believers in the power of culture and belonging as the secret to success, we champion great workplaces and build lifelong partnerships with our customers to show what’s possible when businesses invest in their people. Born from a historic merger that created one of the world’s leading HCM cloud companies, our Life-work Technology approach to HR, payroll, and workforce management solutions for all people helps more than 70,000 organizations around the globe and across every industry anticipate and adapt to their employees’ needs beyond just work.
