The value of an organisation is reflected by its people and its culture. At Red Hat, we are immensely proud of the people within our organisation and their ongoing contribution to our vibrant culture and workplace. It turns out, we’re not the only ones to hold this view. We are delighted to announce that Red Hat has been ranked as No 9 in the UK’s Best Workplaces, in the Great Place to Work Awards, large company category. This accolade comes alongside Red Hat being ranked 4th in the Best Place to Work in Tech, large company category.
This award recognizes the inclusive and supportive working culture Red Hat has worked to create and nurture over many years. Open source principles are intrinsic to our values and inform how we operate as a company. People work at Red Hat because they believe in open source. We are always striving to do more for each other and for our customers.
This is because we work in an open environment that nurtures talent and allows people to fulfill their potential. We value new ideas and we actively encourage feedback from people at all levels of the organisation. This has led to an open and inclusive culture where people can be themselves and make a difference. The collective passion, energy and enthusiasm this generates has been integral to the company’s ongoing growth and success.
The final ranking is based on Great Place to Work’s stringent methodology. The methodology is also unique, assessing both the employee experience (through the Trust Index employee survey) and the HR and leadership practices that create the organisation’s workplace culture (through the Culture Audit).
Red Hat takes a purposeful approach to sustaining and scaling our identity as an open organisation with a culture rooted in open source principles. Open source is based on the principles of open collaboration and innovation. Red Hat seeks to embody this at every level.
Congratulations to everyone in the UK for contributing to make Red Hat an official great place to work.
