Acquia Named a 2023 UK’s Best Workplace for Women

READING, UK, July 20, 2023 — The 2023 UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Women list launched today by Great Place to Work® UK recognised Acquia among its ranked organisations. The results are based on survey feedback from Acquia employees in the UK. 

Each of the companies on this year’s list has been commended by their own employees, who have anonymously told Great Place to Work that their workplace works to ensure that women in their workplace are treated fairly in terms of recognition, training, and promotion opportunities. 

“Acquia supports and values the different viewpoints and experiences of all our employees,” said Heather Hartford, Chief People Officer at Acquia. “We encourage ownership and provide an environment for curiosity and growth, which gives employees the space and support to do great things. This drives innovation and outstanding service for our own customers." 

“We’re delighted to announce our 2023 collection of the Best WorkplacesTM for Women for the sixth consecutive year,” said Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work® UK. “This 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 too. It is fantastic to once again celebrate so many Best Workplaces™ for Women this year, across all sectors and organisational sizes.”
