London, 26/04/2023, Avignon Capital has been recognised as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces™ (2023) today by Great Place to Work®, the global authority on workplace culture.

Our team ethics are just one of the reasons why the company ranked 41 out of 100 in the Small Business category and why employees love working for Avignon.


Property Manager, Charlie Averill said “One of the many reasons I enjoy working at Avignon is the collaborative environment. Everyone is happy to share their knowledge and experience between departments.”

Investment Manager, Nick Cliffe said “I love working at Avignon due to the entrepreneurial spirit and flexibility that we have. It allows you to be a lot more creative”

Angela Hendry, Head of HR said “I am extremely proud that Avignon has received this recognition. The team are what makes Avignon the company it is and one of the best parts of being in a lean organisation like Avignon, is that you develop extremely close bonds with your colleagues which further embeds our collaborative, learning environment, built on mutual trust and respect.

“As the global authority on workplace culture, our mission at Great Place to Work® has always been to build a better world by helping organisations become a great place to work for all. We strongly believe in the notion of ‘better for business, better for people, better for the world,” said Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work® UK.

“Best Workplaces™ consistently put people first – not just in terms of looking out for their own employees but also by caring for and supporting their surrounding community and environment. We’re incredibly proud to recognise the very best ‘For All’ organisations committed to equity and unfaltering in ensuring that all employees are empowered to deliver the right strategic solutions to ever-changing business opportunities and challenges.”

A great workplace is more than lavish perks, fancy parties and amazing benefits. While those elements are present in many Best Workplace™ organisations, at its core a great workplace is about the level of trust that employees experience in their leaders, the level of pride they have in their jobs; and the extent to which they experience camaraderie with their colleagues.

Great Place to Work® performed rigorous evaluations of hundreds of employee survey responses alongside Culture Audit™ submissions from leaders at each company to create the 2023 UK’s Best Workplaces™ list. They then used these data insights to benchmark the effectiveness of companies’ employee value propositions against the culture their employees actually experience.

Those businesses who achieve the highest scores after evaluation receive Best Workplaces™ status.

“Avignon is unique in the sense everyone plays a crucial role in the success of the company, no work goes under the radar and always gets recognised. The bond that everyone has with each other is special and a big factor in driving the company forward”
