Unity Trust Bank has been named by The Sunday Times in its annual Best Places to Work Awards.

The prestigious list recognises and celebrates the UK’s best employers. It’s based on feedback from employees and an independent assessment of six key areas. This includes workplace culture, leadership, employee engagement and wellbeing.

An impressive 91% of employees said that they were proud to work for Unity Trust Bank. 90% felt that their work was worthwhile. When looking at measurements for workplace happiness, Unity’s highest ranking was for ‘Instilling Pride’ (89%). The bank had an average happiness score of 85%.

Words from Julia Tarpey

Commenting on the Sunday Times Best Places to Work Award, Julia Tarpey, Director of Human Resources, said: “Being named in the Best Places to Work is a fantastic achievement. It’s a recognition of the inclusive, diverse and collaborative culture we foster at Unity Trust Bank. Our people are proud to be part of our mission.

“Our colleagues share Unity’s vision of creating a better society by contributing to economic, community and social change. They are fundamental in supporting customers so that they can make a positive impact. We are dedicated to living these values by supporting the growth of every individual. Our support enables them to prosper both personally and professionally.

“From designing our new head-office space with a focus on promoting wellbeing, to funding industry qualifications that allow employees to pursue their career ambitions, and empowering individuals to deliver social impact through company volunteering days and the employee-led ‘Unity & Me’ forum, we recognise that people are at the heart of Unity’s success, and are proud to invest in their wellbeing.”

Unity Trust Bank’s accreditations

Unity Trust Bank has a Gold standard for Investors in People. The bank is also a Real Living Wage and Disability Confident Employer. It is also a signatory of the Women in Finance Charter, which is a commitment to see fairness and gender balance at all levels across financial services firms.

The Best Place to Work Award comes as we celebrate our 40th anniversary, and follows our recent announcement that we had received the King’s Award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development 2024.

With a ‘double bottom line’ strategy of delivering social impact and not simply maximising profits, Unity lends to customers that make a positive contribution to economic, social and environmental change in communities across the UK.
