Mason Advisory recognised as one of the UK’s best workplaces  

Mason Advisory, independent IT consultancy, has been recognised by Great Place to Work UK ®as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces 2020.

Based at MediaCityUK, the company placed 22nd in the ‘small business category’ (up to 50 employees), which highlights it as having a high-trust, high-engagement workplace culture.

The Best Workplaces™ awards represent the largest survey of workplace cultures and people practices, and the methodology behind the rankings is one of the most rigorous and highly regarded in the UK. The opinion of employees is key, as staff feedback makes up the results of the Trust Index, and a separate Culture Audit survey analyses and evaluates the company’s HR, leadership practices, policies and culture.

The report is determined via a thorough evaluation process based on employee experience and feedback on credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie within their workplace.

Mason Advisory is continually investing in and implementing improvements in workplace culture, employee wellbeing, career development, recognition and innovation.

Steve Watmough, Mason Advisory CEO, says: “It’s a great accolade to receive and is certainly a morale-booster for our whole team under these circumstances. We’re proud to have received this recognition as understanding how our employees feel about our business is key to building a successful working environment. It highlights our commitment to putting employees at the heart of our business.

“This is our highest ranking to date, as in 2018 we achieved 23rdplace, so we’re delighted to move up a position. The results give us insight into our team culture, engagement, and satisfaction and we thank all our employees for their commitment, enthusiasm and sheer hard work.”

With offices at MediaCityUK, Salford, and London, Mason Advisory provides IT consultancy and advisory services, solving complex business challenges through the intelligent use of IT resources including IT strategy and transformation, sourcing, architecture, cybersecurity and IT delivery. It operates in sectors such as emergency services, education, retail, finance and banking, health, insurance, government, not for profit, and private security.

This is the third time Great Place to Work has recognised Mason Advisory; in 2019 it was awarded an Excellence in Wellbeing award. Earlier this year, Mason Advisory was also listed in the Financial Times’ Leading Management Consultancies 2020 report.
