Standard Chartered earns Great Place to Work recognition in the UK

on 13 Nov 2023

13 November 2023, London – Standard Chartered has been officially accredited as a Great Place to Work-Certified™ organisation in the UK.

This Certification™ is a significant achievement. Using validated employee feedback gathered by Great Place to Work®, the global authority on workplace culture, with its rigorous, data-driven For All™ methodology, the accreditation confirms that a large majority of employees have a consistently positive experience at the Bank.

Saif Malik, UK CEO and Regional Head of Client Coverage for UK & Europe, at Standard Chartered, said: “We are thrilled to be Great Place to Work-Certified™! It means a lot that our employees have reported a consistently positive experience with their colleagues, their leaders and their jobs. This is important to us because we know that when our people have a high-trust experience every day, they are more productive, drive better business results and make a difference to our customers.”

“We congratulate Standard Chartered on achieving their Certification™,” said Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work® UK. “Organisations which put the employee experience at the heart of their business gain their employees’ trust and, in turn, are truly able to build a great workplace culture that delivers outstanding business results.”

This comes as Standard Chartered in Poland, another of the Bank’s European markets, is also certified as a Great Place to Work®, for the third consecutive year.
