Realise recognised by Great Place to Work® on Certification Nation Day, a Global Celebration of Outstanding Workplaces


Realise is proud to celebrate Certification Nation Day on May 17, along with the community of Great Place to Work-Certified™ companies around the world. Great Place to Work® has designated May 17, 2022 as Certification Nation Day to salute and recognise the companies creating great places to work for all.

Gregg Scott, managing director of Realise, said:

“We’re delighted to be celebrating Certification Nation Day. Our people strategy is at the heart of the long-term vision for Realise.  

“We are an inclusive business that helps people fulfil their potential through our learning and training programmes.” 

“To ensure that they are  running successfully, we need to be confident that our own people are feeling positive about their work at Realise and our Great Place to Work results are testament to that. 

“Many companies are unsuccessful at their first attempt to secure Great Place to Work status so we are thrilled to have scored so highly and it’s a fantastic platform to work from as we aim to continue strengthening our people strategy and policies.” 

Great Place to Work Certification™ is recognised around the world by employees and employers alike and is the global benchmark for identifying outstanding employee experiences. Realise’s results can be viewed on the Great Place to Work website.  

Ben Gautrey, managing director at Great Place to Work® UK, said:

“Our understanding about what employees need, and how they behave, has changed dramatically in recent years. Certified™ companies put people first.”  

“Once Certified™, you become a member of a group of likeminded people-first companies. It’s powerful to know that for one day every year, on Certification Nation Day, all these amazing organisations come together to celebrate and, hopefully, inspire other executives to create and sustain employee-first cultures.” 

“It’s important to honour all of the work that goes into creating a Certified™ company. “

Sarah Lewis-Kulin, vice president of global recognition at Great Place to Work®, said:

“Great Place to Work Certification™ isn’t something that comes easily. It takes ongoing dedication to the employee experience.” 

Celebrating Nation Certification Day

Realise continually works to ensure that colleagues feel valued, considered and listened to and in addition to Great Place to Work Certification, Realise is also listed on the ‘Charter for Employers Positive about Mental Health’.   

Additionally, employees at Realise benefit from a package of wellbeing initiatives. They do not have to ask permission to attend medical appointments, and the company does not enforce a dress code at work so that everyone feels comfortable when working. Every employee gets their birthday off work as additional leave, as well as Christmas Eve. Many employees choose to work flexibly to ensure they have a good work-life balance and are able to do things like pick up children from school.
