Flight Centre Travel Group has been recognised as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces™ (2023) today by Great Place to Work®, the global authority on workplace culture.

Increased annual leave, discounted travel for family and friends as well as an increased focus on employees' health and well-being are just some of the reasons why the company ranked Top 30 in the Super Large category and why employees love working for Flight Centre Travel Group. For over 10 years the business has been ranked as a Great Place to Work and has received several additional awards including UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing (2023).

"Every year, we are determined to build upon the previous year’s success by bringing in new initiatives and benefits for our people. One of our focuses this year was to ensure our people felt heard and had easy access to the decision-makers,” said Will Leonelli, People and Culture Leader Europe.
"This is why we introduced several communication initiatives that prioritised a two-way dialogue between senior leaders and our people – encouraging a culture of collaboration and connection across all levels of our business."
"I am incredibly proud to receive this award as it demonstrates the policies and initiatives People and Culture have implemented are valued by our people."

“As the global authority on workplace culture, our mission at Great Place to Work® has always been to build a better world by helping organisations become a great place to work for all. We strongly believe in the notion of ‘better for business, better for people, better for the world,” said Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work® UK.

“Best Workplaces™ consistently put people first – not just in terms of looking out for their own employees but also by caring for and supporting their surrounding community and environment. We’re incredibly proud to recognise the very best ‘For All’ organisations committed to equity and unfaltering in ensuring that all employees are empowered to deliver the right strategic solutions to ever-changing business opportunities and challenges.”

A great workplace is more than lavish perks, fancy parties and amazing benefits. While those elements are present in many Best Workplace™ organisations, at its core a great workplace is about the level of trust that employees experience in their leaders, the level of pride they have in their jobs; and the extent to which they experience camaraderie with their colleagues.

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 2023 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.

The businesses that achieve the highest scores after evaluation receive Best Workplaces™ status.

90% of Flight Centre Travel Group employees believe that they can be themselves at work.
