Ripe named amongst The Sunday Times Best Places to Work 2024

Manchester-based Insurtech business Ripe has been named as one of The Sunday Times Best Places to Work in 2024. 

The nationwide ranking, powered by WorkL, recognises the best workplaces in the UK. It independently surveys employees with 26 questions across six categories: reward and recognition, instilling pride, information sharing, empowerment, wellbeing, and job satisfaction. 

Ripe scored highly in each category and was particularly commended for its employee satisfaction. Individuals said that they feel appreciated in their role day-to-day, as well as happy and safe in their working environment. 

For example, Ripe rewards outstanding employee achievements with extra time off and financial incentives. The business also runs regular engagement surveys to ensure a two-way dialogue with its team members, and consistently acts on feedback to deliver positive change. 

Paul Williams, Ripe CEO, commented: “We’re incredibly proud of our employees and the difference they make to Ripe every day. For that reason, being named on this list is a real honour. It not only affirms our commitment to providing a positive environment for our team, but reflects the honest, kind, and hardworking outlook that they bring to work every day. Culture is not just top-down, and this achievement speaks volumes about our employees who make Ripe a success.” 

Chris Longcroft, EVP Publisher, The Times and The Sunday Timesadded: “All organisations are only as good as the people they employ and retain. The Sunday Times Best Places to Work awards recognise companies that are innovating to create an engaged and fulfilling working environment for all and in so doing they are creating the best possible platform for business success. To be named on The Sunday Times Best Places to Work list is a true recognition of excellence and I congratulate those organisations who made the grade this year.”
