Further down in the top 20, brick and mortar employers such as The Body Shop, Nando’s and JP Morgan made the cut.

JP Morgan was the only City bank in the top eschelons of the employee satisfaction.

Meanwhile, newcomers to the top 20 list in 2021 include Sage, Just Eat and Majestic Wine.

“Covid-19 is in the driver’s seat and every employer has been impacted, said Glassdoor boss Christian Sutherland-Wong.

“This year’s winning employers have proven, according to employees, that even during extraordinary times, they’ll rise to the challenge to support their people.

So, what makes an employer get such glowing reviews from its staff?

“A mission-driven culture, transparent leadership and career opportunities are always hallmarks of the best places to work winners,” Sutherland-Wong said.
