Great Place to Work-Certified?Ѣ for 3rd Year Running


By Toby Belshaw

Certification™ is a significant achievement. Using validated employee feedback gathered by Great Place to Work® (the global authority on workplace culture, with its rigorous, data-driven For All™ methodology), the accreditation confirms at least 87% of employees have a consistently positive experience at CPL Group, which is comprised of Crescent Purchasing Consortium, Tenet Education Services and Tenet Procurement Services.

We are thrilled to be Great Place to Work-Certified™”, said CPL Managing Director, Darren Lowe. “It means a lot that our employees have reported a consistently positive experience with their colleagues, their leaders and their jobs. It’s our colleagues that make the CPL Group a very special place to work, supporting our vision to be the procurement services partner of choice for the education sector. This certification is really important to us, because we know that, when our people have a high-trust experience every day, they are more productive, drive better business results and make a real difference to our customers and the wider education sector. Well done, team!”

“We congratulate the CPL Group 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 a great workplace culture that delivers outstanding business results”.

Head of People Development at the CPL Group, Jane Davies, said, “This is another fantastic milestone for the CPL Group, and we are immensely proud to have achieved the certification for the third year in a row! We will continue to build on this success and maintain our ongoing commitment to a high-trust workplace culture.”

Great Place to Work-Certified™, the CPL Group has received additional accreditations as part of this process, including ‘Best Workplace for Wellbeing’ in 2022 and ‘Best Workplace for Women’ in 2021.
