Fostering a great workplace for all of our employees at WP Engine is a key strategic pillar that’s played a major role in our company’s growth.
We believe that by creating an open, accepting workplace, infused with a strong culture that promotes transparency and trust, our employees can grow to new heights and do their best work whilst remaining inspired and driven in their careers.
Great Place to Work, the global authority on workplace culture, has affirmed WP Engine’s commitment to being a workplace of choice numerous times since 2017 and recently recognised WP Engine UK as a Great Place to Work-certified organisation.
To become certified, members of our UK team responded to Great Place to Work’s research-backed Trust Index survey, which gauges the level of trust employees experience in their leaders, the level of pride they have in their jobs, and the extent to which they enjoy working alongside their colleagues.
In assessing the trust, pride, and camaraderie reflected within employees’ answers, an organisation’s overall employee survey results must reach 65% or higher to become Great Place to Work-certified. Our UK team surpassed this with flying colors, reaching 83% in this year’s results.
“Working at WP Engine has taught me a lot about myself and all the potential I have as a professional and as a person. Our Core Values really resonate and we empower each other to grow, be ambitious and succeed.”

Additionally, HR and Leadership teams successfully completed Great Place to Work’s Culture Audit, which seeks further detail about all of the programs and practices we’ve established that make our workplace unique.
In seeking out all of this information, Great Place to Work is able to identify outstanding employers who are characterised by a trust-based, “people first” workplace culture their employees love.
“We congratulate WP Engine UK on achieving their Certification,” said Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work® UK. “Organisations which put the employee experience at the heart of their business, gain their employees’ trust and in turn are truly able to build great workplace culture that delivers outstanding business results.”
This includes emphasising values such as credibility, fairness, respect, camaraderie, honesty, and pride, all of which are enshrined in WP Engine’s corporate social responsibility program, Engine for Good, as well as our company core values.
While Engine for Good can be viewed as a vehicle for bringing many of our values to life, our core values truly represent WP Engine’s workplace culture and are highly aligned with Great Place to Work’s vision for trust-based, people-first organisations.
