Mason Advisory

The 2022 UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Women list is announced today and Manchester’s Mason Advisory has secured 19th place among 96 organisations ranked in the Medium category.

This is the first time the independent digital and technology transformation consultancy has ranked in the annual report, which, this year, showcases the largest collection of Best Workplaces for Women that the UK has ever recognised, with 263 organisations listed in total.

To determine the Best Workplaces™ for Women, the Great Place to Work institute assessed feedback from anonymous employee surveys from UK organisations. The results are based on women’s workplace experiences and how well represented they are across the workforce and management, and considered factors such as their daily encounters of inclusivity and representation, fairness, company values, and a spotlight on menopause support and shared parental leave.

Mason Advisory is committed to ensuring employees are able to reach their full potential and continually reviews, analyses, and listens to female employees across the whole business to identify gaps and areas for improvement.


Claire Luff, director of corporate clients at Mason Advisory, says: “This award highlights our status as a leading employer for women, and celebrates our commitment to ensuring women are given opportunities to grow and progress their careers, given an equal voice within the business, and are treated fairly.

“We are an organisation where women support each other to reach their full potential, are empowered to perform to the best of their ability, and are able to challenge decisions and present their opinions openly. The business supports and respects personal values and commitments outside of the workplace and welcomes team members from different backgrounds and levels of experience.

“While there is always more that can be done, Mason Advisory is making strides in treating women fairly and empowering them to challenge and bring about changes for a better workplace experience for all. It’s great to see the female head count rising in the consulting industry, thanks to companies like ours who welcome female employees at all levels and value their skills, experiences and insights.

“Our workplace culture fosters high collaboration across all levels, as well as mentoring and nurturing of junior members of the team to ensure timely career progression. We strive for all our people to feel valued, important, and fulfilled, and we know it is our responsibility as a business to accelerate change, keep improving, and ensure our talent pool is as broad as possible.

“Mason Advisory is a great workplace for everyone, including women, and this award shines a light on how far we have come – and we will continue our efforts for a more diverse, inclusive and balanced workforce.”

Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work® UK, adds:

“Now in its fifth year, our 2022 list showcases the largest collection of Best WorkplacesTM for Women that the UK has ever recognised. These results are based on what women themselves have anonymously reported to us about their workplace experience and how well represented they are in the workforce and management.  Ensuring people aren’t discriminated against, placing positive value on our differences, creating fair access and advancement for all, and fostering a sense of value and empowerment in employees is what being a Great Place to Work® is all about. Only by first identifying the gaps in workers’ experiences can organisations truly take action to close them, which is why analysing employee experience is important. We are proud that the data and insights we provide organisations helps on that continuous journey – and it’s wonderful to celebrate so many Best Workplaces™ for Women this year, across all sectors and organisational sizes.”

Earlier this year, Mason Advisory was listed in the UK’s Leading Management Consultants 2022 report, published by the Financial Times and secured 19th place in the UK’s Best Workplaces medium business category rankings 2022 in April.
