Policy Expert recognised as ‘outstanding’ workplace in Best Companies accreditation scheme

Policy Expert, a leading UK personal lines InsurTech, has been recognised as an ‘outstanding’ business in the Best Companies accreditation scheme, achieving a 2-star accolade in its first year of taking part in the programme.
Its results mean Policy Expert ranks among the insurance sector’s top ten employers in 2023 and among the UK’s 100 best large companies to work for.
The Best Companies accreditation programme sets the standard for workplace engagement in the UK, by recognising organisations and managers who genuinely value and respect their people.
The ‘B-Heard’ survey assesses end-to-end engagement journeys in the workplace through eight factors: My Manager, Leadership, Company, Personal Growth, Team, Wellbeing, Fair Deal and Giving Something Back. Over 85% of Policy Expert employees provided feedback through the survey, leading to the recognition as an ‘outstanding’ organisation.
Policy Expert says it works tirelessly to create an engaging, inclusive and flexible working environment for all employees, understanding the importance of talent attraction and retention to the running of the business. Since 2011, Policy Expert has grown into a team of 500 employees, welcoming 85 new starters in the last six months alone.
The business strives to promote diversity and inclusion not only in the organisation but within the wider insurance industry. Policy Expert recently launched a partnership with CodeFirstGirls to help women get into the tech industry by offering them free technical courses and career pathways.
The business also offers flexible and hybrid working across all roles as standard, and enhanced maternity/paternity policies that give parents up to 16 weeks fully paid maternity, and up to four weeks fully paid paternity leave.
Steve Hardy, ceo at Policy Expert, commented: “We’re thrilled to be recognised as an outstanding business in the Best Companies accreditation scheme. At Policy Expert, we’re proud to foster an inclusive and supportive working culture, valuing all our employees and creating an atmosphere in which everyone can excel.
We look forward to working with Best Companies to use the survey feedback to act on the issues and trends that our employees care most about. We want to be the insurance disruptor that our people want to be part of for life. To do this, it’s vital we collaborate to make Policy Expert an organisation that works for everyone.”
