Jet2.com has been named the number one airline in the Best Places to Work in the UK in 2022, according to Glassdoor, the worldwide leader on insights about jobs and companies.
With an overall satisfaction rating of 4.2 out of 5, Jet2.com was the only airline to appear in the list of the Best Places to Work in the UK in 2022, ranking at number 43. As a result of being highly rated for workplace experiences, the UK’s third largest airline was honoured with Glassdoor’s Employees’ Choice Award 2022.
The accolade is based solely on the input of colleagues and comes after Glassdoor evaluated anonymous reviews from former and current colleagues of Jet2.com about their job, work environment and employer on the review website. Now in its 14th year, the winners of the annual Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards 2022 were determined based on reviews shared on the website between 20 October 2020 and 18 October 2021.
To be considered for an Employees’ Choice Award, companies must have received at least 30 reviews over the 12-month period for each of the nine workplace attributes. Overall company rating, career opportunities, compensation and benefits, culture and values, senior management, diversity and inclusion, work/life balance, recommend to a friend and six-month business outlook are all taken into account as part of the award’s algorithm. In addition, employees are asked to describe the best reasons to work at their companies as well as any downsides.
