We are a top 100 company
For the seventh time, we have been ranked as a top 100 company to work for in The Sunday Times ‘top 100 not for profit’ companies.
We were ranked number 65, and are the only housing association in the area to appear on the list.
Seventy four percent of our 353 staff completed the survey, which asked about eight factors of their work life – the management, the leadership, the company, personal growth, their team, giving something back, a fair deal and well being.
Amongst the result highlights, a huge ninety two percent of staff agreed that we encourage charitable activities, and ninety one percent said they believe they can make a valuable contribution to the success of Ongo.
Steve Hepworth, Chief Exec, said: “To be ranked as a top 100 company in The Sunday Times is an amazing achievement, and it’s something we are all extremely proud of.
“The reason we take part in this survey is to give our staff the opportunity to share their thoughts, in a completely anonymous way, so to receive so many positive responses has been fantastic.
“Our results not only reflect the pride and passion our staff have for their job, but the dedication to provide the best service possible, throughout our communities.”
Best Companies operates a star system, awarding up to three stars for exceptional companies. We have been awarded one star, which is described as a significant achievement that shows an organisation is taking workplace engagement seriously. The one star accreditation signifies ‘very good’ levels of workplace engagement.
