Castik portfolio companies AddSecure and Reward Gateway voted amongst the Top 50 most inspiring workplaces in EMEA


London – May 12, 2023. Last night The Inspiring Workplaces Group announced its Top 50 Inspiring Workplaces list in EMEA.

The Inspiring Workplaces Awards 2023 asked each organisation to complete the entry form consisting of six key elements. Elements it believes are fundamental to creating an Inspiring Workplace. They are:

  • Culture and Purpose
  • Leadership
  • Wellbeing
  • Inclusion & Diversity
  • Communication
  • Employee Experience

These elements were also available to be judged separately for special recognition in each discipline.

Organisations entered a category defined by how many people are within the business.

The Top 50 was decided by an independent expert judging panel.

Matt Manners, Founder, The Inspiring Workplaces Group commented, “Congratulations to The Top 50 Inspiring Workplaces throughout EMEA. The calibre of submissions this year has seen the bar raised considerably. The strongest that we have ever seen. This shows that business leaders really are putting their people first and reaping the rewards this deserves.

It also shows that positive, meaningful change is being delivered throughout the world of work. So this year we did not rank the Top 50 because simply being listed clearly puts those organisations in a new gold standard for PeopleFirst organisations”.
