Samsara has recently been recognized as a 2023 UK best workplace for women by Great Place To Work, a company helping organizations to create high-performing workplaces where employees feel trusted and valued.

Samsara’s recognition has been largely driven by feedback from its employees, with 94 percent of women saying that Samsara is a great place to work and 97 percent agreeing that employees at Samsara are treated fairly, regardless of their gender.

The company has grown to more than 2,200 employees across nine countries and creating an inclusive, fair and empowering culture is its key focus. Samsara is committed to increasing diversity in its workforce, with the number of women in the UK business growing by 10 percent since 2022 and most recently tripling the ratio of women software engineers during this year alone.

Samsara strives to provide an exceptional experience for every employee, with inclusive benefits designed to support people both personally and professionally. In the UK, these include a work-from-anywhere approach, with flexibility on working hours through the day, full pay for maternity leave for six months, paid sabbaticals, family planning and fertility benefit plus mental health and professional development coaching. The UK Women of Samsara Employee Resource Group, led by employees, also provides a community for mentorship and support and a voice for women to engage with the UK executive team.

Jesper Helt, head of people, EMEA at Samsara, said: “Samsarians are what makes our company and we are committed to building a purposeful work environment where everyone can bring their whole selves to work and be given the freedom and flexibility to balance personal and work life.

“We seek to be a top destination for talent in tech and not least women in tech. This award recognizes the success of our approach in creating a culture of inclusion and equal opportunities, where all employees are supported to bring their best self.”

Benedict Gautrey, managing director of Great Place to Work, UK, said: “The 2023 list celebrates the workplaces that are not just providing a great work environment for all, but are ensuring they’re creating a positive and supportive environment for women.

“Through its place on the 2023 list, Samsara is demonstrating its commitment to removing discrimination and ensuring women employees are treated fairly in terms of recognition, training and promotion opportunities.”
