Data: The 30 happiest places to work in UK retail


Hackett London, Browns and Moonpig have the happiest workforces of any retailer in the UK, new data has revealed. 

The trio all amassed a 93% happiness score in a survey of more than 100,000 UK employees conducted by WorkL, the digital tool designed to help businesses create better working environments.  

WorkL, which was founded by former Waitrose boss and John Lewis Partnership deputy chair Lord Mark Price, also ranked the likes of Whole Foods, Beaverbrooks and Selfridges among the top 10 major retailers.

But none of those companies were able to break into the UK’s top 100 businesses overall, with Hackett only finishing in 215th place as retail lagged behind other industries.
