“Year after year, it's truly inspiring to witness a growing number of organisations earn a spot on our UK’s Best Workplaces™ List, we’ve seen our client’s Trust Index scores increasing meaning the bar for being on this List getting higher.

Congratulations to Zest for being part of our 2024 UK’s Best Workplaces™ List."
Great Place To Work® performed rigorous evaluations of hundreds of employee survey responses alongside Culture Audit™ submissions from leaders at each company to create the 2024 UK's Best Workplaces™ list. They then used these data insights to benchmark the effectiveness of companies' employee value propositions against the culture their employees actually experience. Only those businesses who achieve the highest scores after evaluation receive Best Workplaces™ status.

Here are some comments from the employee survey:

“I think everyone here passionately believes in, and is committed, to carbon reduction and making the world a more sustainable place. You get the sense that we are on a mission rather than just a company out to maximise value for shareholders.”

“This company has a family feel with a think big attitude. It is rapidly growing in numbers but we still have time to interact with people across the whole business with company get togethers and other initiatives.”

“I believe that the 'EV world' is new to most people who come to work at Zest, making a unique step for a lot of people including myself. The experienced team here are very knowledgeable, welcoming and patient with new starters and I was helped with any questions I had and making the shift into this new industry.”
