Love2shop – ranked a ‘Best Workplace for Women’ in prestigious 2023 list



20 July 2023


Leading gifting and engagement expert, Love2Shop, has been officially crowned one of the best places to work for women in the UK, according to the Great Place to Work List 2023 announced today.

The prestigious annual list, now in its sixth year, showcases the largest collection of Best Workplaces for Women that the UK has ever recognised. According to Great Place to Work, these “exceptional companies have redefined workplace culture, setting a new standard for gender equality and inclusion. From robust talent development programmes to fair pay and benefits, these workplaces prioritise the success and wellbeing of their female employees.”

With more than 250 employees, the gift card, customer loyalty and employee engagement specialist – and sister brand, Park Christmas Savings – is thrilled to be listed (#55 out of #89 in the UK’s ‘large organisations’ category).

Claire Jones, People and Integration Director at Love2shop, said: “To be recognised by a prestigious company like Great Place to Work for being one of the best places to work for women in the UK makes us all feel very proud.

“It means we are doing something right. And it means that we have generated a strong and positive workplace for women – where they are respected and empowered to develop as professionals, whether that’s because they want to advance in their careers or because they want to be, and do, their best in their day-to-day work.

“As the award is prompted by our own employees’ responses to annual surveys, it reflects authentic attitudes of the people in the company. And that’s particularly vindicating for everyone to know: together, we are creating and achieving great things!

As well as being the UK’s number one gift card provider, Love2Shop also works with businesses to create customer loyalty and employee engagement strategies using data to drive reward and recognition more effectively. While Park Christmas Savings is the leading – and longest-running – Christmas Savings Club in the UK; it has been going for over 55 years and more than three million families have saved for Christmas with ‘Park’.

The data behind the list of top UK businesses is collected from a survey of each company’s employees, measuring how staff feel about workplace culture. Love2shop was already ranked as one of the ‘Best Workplaces in the UK’ (#32) as part of the Great Place to Work engagement survey in April – and before that, as a ‘Best Workplace for Wellbeing’ listing (#42).

The confidential feedback was collected by Great Place to Work through a rigorous survey. The data was evaluated independently to conclude a ranking for each employer. Love2shop was placed 55 out of a total of 89 companies which secured an official ranking in the final list.

Employees provided insight into their experiences of trust and how employers helped them improve in order to reach their full potential as part of their organisation. Great Place to Work also looked at employees’ daily experiences of innovations, the company’s values and the effectiveness of their leaders to ensure a consistent experience across departments and seniority levels.
