We are delighted to receive 12th place overall in the prestigious Sunday Times 100 Best Not-For-Profit awards held recently.

The Sunday Times 100 Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work For were announced at the Awards Celebration in Battersea in front of a packed audience of over 1,300 people. BBC presenter Kate Silverton announced the winners.

Hospice was competing with 897 other organisations. During this process 250,000 employees were surveyed. This makes it the largest survey of workplace engagement in the UK.

The organisation behind this award, Best Companies congratulated Hospice on the 3 star rating (highest available) and for achieving position 12 on The Sunday Times Best 100 Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work For list 2014 particularly as this is the charities first time entry. 

The team added: “You should be truly proud of your organisation and the fact that your people feel it’s one of the UK’s best workplaces”.

Chief Executive of Hospice Margaret Simpson, who attended the awards dinner, on behalf of the charity said: “This is the first time we entered this award and were absolutely delighted to be shortlisted to the final 100.” “Guests don’t find out until the night where they have finally come, so it was with butterflies and in trepidation that when they started calling out the final 20 it dawned on us how well Hospice had done.” “When position 12 was announced I was absolutely delighted – this is a true accolade to the Board of Governors, staff and all volunteers that support our charity.” “Well done to everyone involved in making Hospice a terrific place to work or volunteer within and for being so involved in workplace engagement – this award is for everyone.”
