Acknowledged for Commitment to Employee Growth

To compile the UK’s Best Workplaces for Development™ list, GPTW® evaluated each participating company’s culture, benefits, leadership approach, and development strategies, alongside anonymous employee responses. These insights benchmark each company’s employee value proposition against the actual culture experienced by employees, with the highest-scoring businesses earning Best Workplaces status.

Over the past three years, BlakYaks has introduced numerous initiatives to reinforce its commitment to employee development, including the launch of the ‘BlakYaks Academy.’ This bespoke technical training program equips team members, particularly those new to the workforce, with advanced cloud-native skills in technologies such as Azure, DevOps, Terraform, and Ansible.

Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place To Work® UK, commented, “Employee training and development isn’t just about teaching employees to do their jobs. It’s about showing employees they are valued and that there is a path of progression available. Congratulations to BlakYaks for being part of our 2024 UK’s Best Workplaces for Development List.”

This recognition marks BlakYaks’ fourth accolade from Great Place To Work®, following its inclusion in the UK’s Best Workplaces™ 2024, UK’s Best Workplaces™ 2023, and UK’s Best Workplaces in Tech™ 2023 lists.
