[Darlington, England] Baltic Apprenticeships, a leading provider of tech and digital apprenticeships, is proud to announce that that it has been recognised as one of the Sunday Times Best Places to Work, alongside easyJet Holidays, Octopus Energy, David Lloyd Clubs, TUI and more.

To establish the list, The Sunday Times collaborated with WorkL, an employee-experience platform, to conduct research across eligible UK organisations. The Sunday Times Best Places to Work awards survey used 26 questions, developed by behavioural scientists, data analysts, psychologists, business leaders, academics and other independent parties to accurately measure employee engagement and well-being measures in each workplace. To achieve a high overall engagement score, an organisation must score well across WorkL’s six-step framework:

  1. Reward and Recognition

  2. Instilling Pride

  3. Information Sharing

  4. Empowerment

  5. Wellbeing

  6. Job Satisfaction

In January 2023, Baltic Apprenticeships launched a new benefits package for their employees. Some of the Baltic’s brand-new benefits include:

2 Baltic Breather Days: These are two extra paid days off to recharge and reset when the company goes into full shutdown, encouraging positive employee well-being. 

1 Life Event Day: An extra holiday to use for ANY event. This could be to celebrate a birthday, attend a graduation, move house or more! 

Free access to Spill: Spill is a confidential mental health service and an all-in-one support space. Employees can access free 1-to-1 therapy sessions, a range of resources (which touch upon handling burnout, improving employee well-being, and promoting good company cultures) and mental health courses which improve emotional intelligence.

Buggy Bonus: As well as a generous maternity and paternity package, employees also receive a £200 buggy bonus to alleviate some of the financial pressure new parents face. 

Antony Hobbs, Chief Executive Officer, Baltic Apprenticeships, said:

“Baltic Apprenticeships is honoured to be listed as a Sunday Times Best Place to Work alongside many prestigious organisations. Over the past 12 months, we have made significant investments to improve our people and culture experience such as introducing two annual well-being days, a social events schedule, and an improved maternity and paternity package, so it’s great to see our employees feeling valued and their feedback positively reflecting these changes.”

Chris Longcroft, EVP Publisher, The Times and The Sunday Times, said:

“All organisations are only as good as the people they employ and retain. The Sunday Times Best Places to Work awards recognise companies that are innovating to create an engaged and fulfilling working environment for all and in so doing they are creating the best possible platform for business success. To be named on The Sunday Times Best Places to Work list is a true recognition of excellence and I congratulate those organisations who made the grade this year.”
