UNICEF UK among top 100 Best Small Companies to Work For
UNICEF UK is delighted to announce that it has earned a place in the elite Sunday Times list of the 100 Best Small Companies to Work For (2009), published on Sunday March 1.
In addition to being ranked 98th on the list, UNICEF UK achieved the second highest score nationally for employees believing their organisation was making the world a better place (95% positive).
The 2009 survey incorporated the views of 34,295 employees across 565 small businesses, making it the most comprehensive study of workplace opinion and engagement of its kind in the UK. The methodology identifies best practice defined by performance in eight key indicators of workplace engagement, including staff opinions on leadership, management, pay and benefits, wellbeing and personal development.
UNICEF UK has also been recognised as “outstanding” with a Two Star ranking in the Best Companies Accreditation, which uses the same process as the Sunday Times list and follows a Michelin-style star rating system for organisations that demonstrate high levels of employee engagement.
This accreditation is listed on the Best Companies website, and a full page profile of UNICEF UK will be included in The Best Companies Guide, an annual reference guide for graduates and jobseekers, which will be published in April.
David Bull, UNICEF UK Executive Director, said:
“This is an extraordinarily proud moment in UNICEF UK’s history book. We are delighted to be recognised as one of the best small companies to work for in Britain, and to have achieved an outstanding two-star rating in the Best Companies Accreditation.
What makes UNICEF UK an exceptional place to work is down to the hard work and commitment of its employees who are dedicated to making a lasting difference to children’s lives around the world.”
