Looking for a new job? These are the best companies to work for

With 2020 just around the corner, the ‘new year new me’ mantra will start cropping up once again. Whether you hate the saying with a passion or are guilty of making an endless list of promises every time, the new decade (!) is a chance to reflect on the year and, if you so wish, make some life changes.

One of those might be work related. You could be interested in a career change, and if you are we recommend reading about the mistakes people make in their first week at a new job.

But before you quit your job and jump into the unknown, it’s worth doing your research to find out which companies offer the most in terms of employee satisfaction.

So where do you start?

Well, the annual Employees’ Choice Awards for 2019 by employee review site Glassdoor is here to help you navigate the world of work.

If you’re looking for something new but aren’t sure where to go, the awards base their results on perks and benefits, work-life balance, career opportunities, culture and values, and salary of companies throughout the UK.
