How Razor became one of the UK’s Best Workplaces for Wellbeing™

Great Place to Work® recognises Razor's commitment to employee wellbeing and culture


The secret to wellbeing at Razor

The Best Workplaces for Wellbeing list isn't about who has the coolest office snacks (though, we do love a delicious homemade treat), it's about the holistic experience of wellbeing at work. This includes work-life balance, a sense of fulfilment, social support, job satisfaction and financial security. 

Our spot on this list highlights our dedication to creating a positive employee experience that boosts business, improves lives and contributes to a better society. We’ve rolled out a bunch of new benefits and policies to solidify our commitment to employee wellbeing. 

One of our proudest achievements? Introducing Razor Bank Holidays. On top of our (very generous) annual leave, Christmas closure, birthday’s off and standard bank holidays, we close the office and give colleagues two more long weekends to relax, enjoy and re-energise. 

What else? Recognition in the bucketload. Getting a meaningful pat on the back builds a foundation of trust, respect and appreciation that contributes significantly to a robust wellbeing culture. Through 1:1s, monthly team meetings, Slack #wins channel, and our weekly relay recognition events, we enjoy celebrating the successes of our team.

And one more? Communication, communication, communication! Easy to say, challenging to do. Even when you can fit everyone in one room! We work hard to keep everyone involved and connected. From skip-level meetings, weekly comms from the Board, town halls and the most important of all… 1:1s with a mentor. All these communications aim at giving our super smart colleagues the context to be agile, proactive and autonomous. 


Using data to put people first

To create the UK's Best Workplaces for Wellbeing List, Great Place To Work® took a deep dive into our culture, benefits, leadership approach and development opportunities. They also gathered anonymous feedback from our employees. This resulted in data-driven insights that benchmarked our employee value proposition against the actual experience of our team. 

From the feedback, it’s clear our team appreciates our dedication to nurturing a flexible culture that focuses on our people’s wellbeing. One employee shared, "For us as a family, hybrid working has helped massively. It's allowed my wife to go full-time as I can now help take more of the responsibility with the kids. It's also really nice to be able to go into the office and work with different people and find out what they've been up to."

Our CEO, Jamie Hinton, couldn’t agree more. “Our inclusion in the UK's Best Workplaces for Wellbeing List is a testament to our continuous efforts to put our employees first. We believe that a happy team is a productive team, and we’ll keep striving to make Razor an even better place to work.”

Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place To Work UK, had some wise words to share: “Wellbeing, engagement, and trust between employees are critical ingredients to successful workplace culture. By ensuring employees feel genuinely trusted and cared for, they are much healthier, productive, and committed to the mission and purpose of the organisation. Congratulations to Razor for making this prestigious list!
