Coleraine-based InsurTech Covernet has officially been recognised as the Best Place to Work™ in Northern Ireland by the Great Place to Work® UK Institute.
Established over 40 years ago, Great Place to Work® applies data and insights from millions of employees working in around 10,000 organisations across the world every year to benchmark individual performance.
The much-revered accolade was awarded to the local Software-as-a-Service company at a gala event in London’s Tobacco Dock, celebrating the UK’s Best Workplaces ™ across varying organisational size categories.
Following a rigorous application process which comprised of a 5-point culture audit of the organisation as well as an extensive employee survey, the leading provider of web-based insurance solutions was placed tenth in the UK overall in the small size category of the awards making them the top placed company in Northern Ireland.
Lee Stuart, Managing Director of Covernet commented: “Great Place to Work™, who organise the awards and certification, is the global authority on workplace culture. To be named as the Best Place to Work™, out of all small companies in Northern Ireland, is testament to the commitment and engagement of our people.
