Bella Italia Named the Best Hospitality Business To Work at in 2021

Bella Italia, part of The Big Table Group, has been ranked the best hospitality company to work for in this year’s Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards; it was named eighth on the overall list of companies across the UK. Now in its seventh year, The Employees’ Choice Awards programme recognises the Best Places to Work in 2021 and is solely based on employee feedback taken from Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites.

Drawing on Glassdoor reviews from the past year, the prestigious awards programme has recognised Bella Italia for its performance in areas including care and investment in employees, culture, flexible working and work-life balance.

Commenting on the result, Lisa Gibbons, Bella Italia Brand Director, said: “It is a wonderful feeling to have been voted the UK’s top hospitality company to work for and knowing that the recognition has come directly from members of our team makes it all the better.

“In spite of all the difficulties that have presented themselves over the past 12 months, we haven’t been left disheartened as a team at Bella Italia. We’ve supported each other, recognising and respecting everyone, and the role they play in our famiglia. We work hard to build strong relationships – we love our team just as much as we love our guests and through our constant focus on our people and values, we have kept our fantastic employees at the heart of everything we do. The award really is testament to our amazing team and culture during such a turbulent year.”

On Glassdoor, current and former employees voluntarily and anonymously share insights and opinions about their work environments by sharing a company review, designed to capture a genuine and authentic inside look at what a specific job may be like at a particular company. When sharing a company review on Glassdoor, employees are asked to rate their satisfaction with the company overall, and key workplace factors like career opportunities, compensation and benefits, culture and values, senior management and work/life balance. In addition, employees are asked to describe the best reasons to work at their companies as well as any downsides.

Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work were determined using company reviews shared by UK-based employees between 22nd October 2019 and 19th October 2020. To be considered for the UK award, a company must have had at least 1,000 or more employees and have received at least 30 ratings across each of the eight workplace attributes from UK-based employees during the period of eligibility. The final list is compiled using Glassdoor’s proprietary algorithm, led by its Economic Research Team, and takes into account quantity, quality and consistency of reviews.
