Kascade Ranked in the UK’s Best Workplaces for Wellbeing™ 2024!

Drumroll please… Kascade has not only been named one of the UK’s Best Workplaces for Wellbeing™ for 2024, but we’ve also landed a spot in the top 100! Now, we bet you’re not too surprised – and honestly, neither are we – but we’re over the moon and so proud to be recognised on such a prestigious list.

Why is this list such a big deal? It zeroes in on the full scope of employee wellbeing at work – from work-life balance and job satisfaction to social support, financial security, and that all-important sense of fulfilment. It’s all about highlighting the best of the best places in the UK where wellbeing is top-notch.

Our people, our pride

At Kascade, we firmly believe our team is our greatest asset. It’s vital to us that everyone feels looked after. Making this list officially tips the hat to our commitment to crafting an overwhelmingly positive experience for our employees. 

We’re all about creating a safe space where innovative ideas flourish, mistakes are part of the learning curve, and trying new things is celebrated. And our stats from our 2023/4 engagement survey speak volumes:

  • 94% of our team reported a warm welcome upon joining Kascade
  • 90% felt fully included, no matter their role 
  • 88% take pride in their achievements here 
  • 86% say Kascade is a psychologically and emotionally healthy place to work

Our commitment to wellbeing isn’t just talk, and we don’t do cookie-cutter here – our approach to wellbeing is bespoke. From training tailored to various learning styles to personal development plans that include motivational mapping and coaching, we ensure everyone’s needs are uniquely met. 

This individual focus has seen us promote 12% of our employees in the last year, and we have an average tenure of 6.7 years and a stability ratio of 78.34%. We’ve also recently upped our maternity policy to support our female colleagues in an industry that’s traditionally male-dominated.

More than work: celebrating together

Beyond the stats, we love bringing our team together. At the end of each month, we host a themed lunch to celebrate our successes and bond over great food – taco vans, jacket potatoes, curry, you name it, we’ve done it! 

I’m incredibly proud of the team we have at Kascade and ultimately, it’s the team that define our culture as a business. Our focus is on belonging and ensuring that our people have a voice to influence the way we do things, and feedback on areas that need attention. We recruit great talent who support and care about one another. We know that if the business is doing well it is because our people are doing well and we all get to enjoy that success. We call it winning together.

John Armstrong, Kascade CEO

But don’t just take our word for it! Here’s what our team members have to say:

“Working at Kascade feels like one big welcoming team. It’s always fun and the people are genuinely kind.”

“It’s a place where quality work meets fun, belonging and authenticity.”

“A great bunch of people and a very flexible working environment. I truly feel that management cares about us.”

So, while we’re thrilled with this achievement, it’s genuinely our incredible team we have to thank. We’re not resting on our laurels, though – we’re already brainstorming ways to climb even higher on that list next year.

Join us in this celebration and stay tuned – we can’t wait to share what comes next!
