Medidata has been named one of the UK’s Best Workplaces™, published by Great Place to Work®. This recognition highlights the company’s unique, inclusive culture among the many reasons employees take pride in being part of the “Medidatian” community.

Established in 1999, Medidata was recognised by its employees as a company that promotes a healthy workplace culture based on trust, pride and camaraderie. Upon joining Medidata, 95% of employees agree that they are made to feel welcome, and 92% feel they are able to take time off work when they think it's necessary.

Daphnee Geyer, staff application engineer at Medidata, commented: "At Medidata, I have the opportunity to contribute and to use my technical skills and abilities to solve important problems in clinical research. Medidata is an ambitious company with big goals for the future, and we’re working together as a team to achieve those goals."

Christian Hebenstreit, SVP EMEA at Medidata commented: “This Great Place to Work® recognition is a credit to our extraordinary EMEA team that is dedicated to leading the digital transformation of life sciences. At Medidata, we’re committed to recruiting the most talented candidates, providing a fantastic employee experience and creating a culture of engagement and enjoyment.”

I’m proud that our People Team is supporting our global company mission to create a positive and inclusive environment for all employees.”

To determine an organisation’s ranking, Great Place to Work® administers a Trust Index survey® to employees which represents two-thirds of the final score assigned to any given organisation. The remaining third comes from the Culture Audit®, a business-driven questionnaire that uncovers and evaluates the organisation's HR and leadership practices, policies and culture.
