Samsara listed for UK’s best SME tech workplaces

Samsara has been identified in the cohort of 2023 UK Best Workplaces in Tech by Great Place To Work, a global surveyor of workplace culture. One of the 100 winners across the UK in the SME category, it follows Samsara’s similar win after recently receiving a UK Best Workplace for Women certification.

The evaluation for the award is weighted on feedback from employees, and for Samsara, 98 percent of its UK workforce said they are treated fairly, regardless of their age, gender, race or sexual orientation. A majority 96 percent of employees agreed they are proud to work at the company, 94 percent said they can be their true selves at work and 92 percent felt they are making a positive difference to the wider community.

In the UK, Samsara reports providing competitive pay, an employee stock purchase program, flexible paid time off, paid sabbaticals, family planning and fertility treatment benefits, mental health and professional development coaching, employee resource groups and mentorship programs. The firm credits its continuous employee feedback loop, enabling it to address the needs of its workers quickly and effectively.

“Our company values inform how we operate our business, build our culture and shape the programs and resources we offer our employees,” said Jesper Helt, head of People, EMEA at Samsara. “Not only are we inclusive, we’re laser-focused on customer success, we build for the long term, and adopt a growth mindset. That ultimately helps us win as a team. As an organization, we aim to be a top destination for tech talent, and this award is a testament to the fact that we’re fostering an environment where Samsarians feel valued, inspired and empowered.”

“The Best Workplaces in Tech list is created using the anonymous feedback collected from employees within the technology industry about their workplace experience,” said Benedict Gautrey, managing director, Great Place to Work UK. “In one of the country’s fastest-growing industries, it’s fantastic to see these Tech organizations putting their people strategy at the heart of the business and implementing policies, practices and programs that sustain an impactful and consistently great employee experience for all. A huge congratulations to Samsara for making one of our most prestigious lists.”
