LONDON/MADRID – January 5, 2022 – Leading global data analytics provider Verisk (NASDAQ: VRSK) has obtained the Certification as a Great Place to Work in the United Kingdom and Spain for the second year in a row, granted by the consultancy Great Place to Work®, leader in the identification and certification of Best Workplaces. Based on employee feedback, the certification honors Verisk for its outstanding workplace culture.
Verisk’s certification is driven by an employee engagement survey which measured the extent to which employees across the organisation reported a consistently great workplace experience, considering factors such as their daily encounters of innovation, inclusivity, company values and the effectiveness of its leaders. The survey found 89% of employees agree that new employees are made to feel welcome.
Sunita Holzer, Verisk’s Chief Human Relations Officer said: “We aim to place our colleagues’ experiences at the center of what we do. In the past year, they’ve told us we’ve created an environment that values well-being, that their managers provide them with trust and autonomy and that they know what’s needed to deliver an excellent customer experience. This feedback helps us to continue to propel that goal forward with additional opportunities to invest in each other’s development and empower our colleagues to be an inspired and collaborative team.”

For more than 30 years, Great Place to Work® has been working with companies around the world to identify, create and maintain cultures of high trust and high performance helping organisations to become Better Places to Work.
