We are excited to announce that Oxford International Education Group (OIEG) has been ranked #34 for Learning & Development and #49 for Wellbeing in this year’s UK Best Workplaces ranking, part of the Great Place to Work ranking.

Jo Grendall, our Chief Human Resources Officer comments: “It is fantastic that we have been recognised on the Best Workplace lists for both Development and Wellbeing.  Learning without limits is our vision for students all around the world, and we are incredibly proud to be recognised for our commitment to the wellbeing of our people, and their development. “

Focusing on Employee Development and Wellbeing

At Oxford International, we help students from across the world gain life-changing higher education, vocational, and language education opportunities. Our mission is “Learning Without Limits,” and we extend this philosophy to our employees by prioritising their development and wellbeing.

Supporting Learning & Development

To support our mission, we seek to support development throughout our people’s experience with us, from the induction process, on the job learning as well as formal opportunities such as sponsorship of professional qualifications such as TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) and ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants).

Everyone at Oxford International has access to LinkedIn Learning  and we offer more targeted technical, skills based and manager training.  Over the course of the next year, we will be expanding our learning and development offering to include mentoring and other more targeted learning opportunities.

Key Priorities in Employee Wellbeing and Inclusivity

One of our top priorities is employee wellbeing and inclusivity. We actively participate in initiatives that promote open dialogue, encourage employee feedback, and promptly address concerns.

We believe in nurturing a flexible working culture at the heart of our values. Our goal is to create an environment where all our staff can thrive. While there may be times when operational needs limit remote work opportunities, we have a framework in place for our team and managers to have open discussions and explore homeworking arrangements.

We understand how important it is to care for yourself mentally and physically. Our commitment to employee wellbeing is evident through initiatives promoting good health. We have certified Mental Health First Aiders in all our central locations around the world and offer activities like yoga, internal podcasts, wellbeing webinars and social events to foster connections.

In 2024, we launched our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion committee internally, to help us support staff regardless of background, and drive our inclusive culture across divisions and locations. We are beginning this journey and encourage feedback from everyone.

At Oxford International, we are dedicated to creating an environment where everyone can thrive. As we move forward, let’s continue to foster a culture of well-being, innovation, and inclusivity.

Thank you for being a part of our journey and our success.
