d3t recognised as a GamesIndustry.biz Best Place to Work for 2023
2nd Oct 2023
The award highlights the best games studios to work for in the UK, and 2023 marks the fifth consecutive year in a row that d3t has won the award and the sixth time in our history.
However, what makes this award more special for us is that it is voted for primarily by our team, with 75% of a studios score coming from an anonymous employee survey and the final 25% via an in-depth company questionnaire.
Speaking on the announcement, our Head of Studio, Richard Badger, said: “I am delighted that both d3t and Coconut Lizard have been announced as two of the best games studios in the UK to work for. This is not only the first time that Coconut Lizard has been recognised, but it is also the sixth time that d3t has received the award – 2017, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, and now 2023.
“Since both studios were founded, we have continued to level up, not only on the scale and complexity of the games that we work on, but also in the size of our team, which now stands at close to 200 strong. However, with this growth, we have been completely committed to keep our culture at the forefront of what we do.
“This commitment has seen us as studios continue to improve what we do, whether it’s investing more into our studio’s spaces, increasing our team’s perks and benefits, or adapting our policies and practices to ensure that the needs of our teams changing lives are met.
“We do this because we care about everyone associated with d3t and Coconut Lizard. And put simply without our team’s incredible talent and passion for all things games, we would not be where we are today. So, a massive thank you goes to every single of them as they have made the studios the great places to work that they are.”
This is the second award that d3t has received this year, after also being announced as the winner of the Employer of the Year category at the Halton Business Awards, along with receiving a Best Creative Provider award nomination at this year’s Develop:Star Awards. The studio also received nominations within this year’s Gi.Biz special award categories – The Education award, Health and Wellbeing award, and the UK Best Boss award, for our outstanding Head of Art, Louise Andrew.
