Great Place to Work 2022
What makes Western Global great?
Great news! Western Global is a certified Great Place to Work® in the UK, US, and Canada.
We are proud to announce that we have been certified as a Great Place to Work. The award is based on direct feedback from the Western Global team about the work-life experience and culture at Western Global.
The US and UK have been certified for a second year, and we are thrilled to add Canada to the list. And even better, we have seen an improvement across many areas, including:
- Engagement and trust
- Maximizing employee potential
We focus on creating a workplace where our team can be their most productive self, all while enjoying what they do. And with 96% of employees saying Western is a great place to work, it shows we are doing something right.
Western Global’s recipe for happiness at work
We work closely with our team to ensure everyone is happy and has the support, resources, and opportunities they need to thrive in their role. After all, a happy employee equals happy customers, right?
- “When you join the company, you are made to feel welcome.”
We have brought together a team of creative and friendly individuals across the globe. And together, we work to make great things happen for each other and our customers. As market leaders in fuel storage, our team is motivated to provide the best solutions for our clients.
We welcome all new starters with a thorough induction program and provide them with the necessary training to feel confident in their new role. But don’t just take our word for it; 98% of our employees said they have been welcomed into the Western family.

2. Western Global recognizes the little and the big wins #CelebrateSuccess
As with every great place to work, our values are designed to bring together our global workforce, unify us in our mission and celebrate success across the business. At Western Global, we come together monthly to recognize the people across the company who live and breathe our values with our Ready Maker Awards.
In 2021, we proudly announced our Ready-Maker of the Year, Zak Field (UK). Zak was recognized by his peers for going above and beyond in supporting the Western Global team. Congrats, Zak!
3. “I am proud to tell others I work here.”
An impressive 96% of people are proud to tell others they work for Western. It is simply our passion and love for what we do that fuels the business.
Jeremy, Our Lead Production Tech (US), couldn’t say it any better in our Western Global testimonial video about our team’s response to Hurricane Ida in 2021.
And our talented Engineer, Reshma (UK), is very proud to be part of the Western Global family.
“I am involved in several product innovations and developments. I feel incredibly proud to see my efforts contributing to many happy customers. As a woman in a male-dominated industry, I am grateful to Western for giving me new opportunities to grow and develop in my career. I am lucky to work in a supportive team and proud to be part of the Western Global family.” (Reshma Shah, UK).
4. Giving back to the Community – supporting local charities
Winnipeg, Canada – Charity BBQ to help raise money and food donations to support a non-profit, community based organization- Harvest Manitoba.
Boost the morale
Our people take pride in giving back to the community. That’s why we support local charities across our offices by allocating time for volunteering and fundraising.
We recently held a charity BBQ at our Winnipeg office in Canada to raise money and food donations to support Harvest Manitoba. Harvest Manitoba is a local non-profit, community-based organization dedicated to nourishing our community.
To help the high demand, we raised:
- 591.50 CAD in cash
- 650 CAD in food donations (approx.).
- The food donations weighed about 266 lbs. This is about 208 meals for Manitobans in need.
Amazing work, team!
Keep a look out for our next fundraiser, where our UK team will be heading on a memory walk to support The Alzheimer’s Society- South Gloucestershire.
