LONDON – 16 November 2022 – For the third consecutive year, leading global data analytics provider Verisk (Nasdaq: VRSK) is Certified™ in the United Kingdom by Great Place to Work. Verisk has also been named to the 2022 UK’s Best Workplaces™ in Tech list. These prestigious awards are based entirely on what current employees say about their experience working at Verisk.
Verisk’s certification is driven by an employee engagement survey which measured the extent to which employees across the organization reported a consistently great workplace experience, considering factors such as their daily encounters with innovation, inclusivity, company values and the effectiveness of its leaders. The survey found that 80% of Verisk teammates say it is a great place to work, and 91% agree that people here care about each other.
“Our customers rely on Verisk as a trusted technology partner to meet their evolving needs,” said Lee Shavel, Verisk CEO. “It’s with the feedback of our colleagues that we can ensure our teams feel comfortable bringing their best and most authentic selves to work to further build that trust and support the goals of our customers and the industries we serve.”
