Here are the 20 best companies to work for in the UK in 2018

Google has been named the best place to work in the UK for 2018. 

The company reclaimed the top spot it held in 2015 on Glassdoor's Best Places to Work list, after falling to 13th place in 2017. 

The international jobs site compiled the rankings for the tenth annual 'Employees' Choice Awards' using anonymous employee feedback, collected between November 2016 and October 2017.

A score of 1.0 means an employee is "very dissatisfied", whilst a 5.0 is the highest a company can be rated. According to Glassdoor, winners are ranked based on their overall rating, calculated beyond the thousandth decimal place.

 

Glassdoor CEO and co-founder Robert Hohman commented on the results: "We know today's job seekers are more informed than ever about where they go to work, researching everything from company culture to career opportunities to pay philosophy and more.

"To help people find companies that stand out from the pack, the Glassdoor Employees' Choice Awards recognise employers that are truly Best Places to Work because they're determined by those who really know best - the employees".
