The Medaille Trust is proud to announce that it has been rated as one of the 50 best mid-sized companies to work for in the UK and the 8th best organisation to work for in the charity sector.
The Medaille Trust, which provides supported accommodation to victims of modern slavery at nine safe houses, received high rankings today in quarterly ratings produced by Best Companies, an employee engagement specialist organisation. The charity was ranked as the 43rd best mid-sized company to work for in the UK. In delivering the ratings, Best Companies cited a project at Medaille Trust’s Merseyside service, which turned a wasteland into an allotment where the residents plant and grow vegetables. Extra produce was donated to the local food bank. Medaille Trust North West service was also ranked as the 23rd best mid-sized company to work for in the North West.
Following the announcement of the rankings, Medaille Trust CEO Garry Smith said: “These top rankings recognise our commitment to ensuring that all our employees feel valued, supported, and happy in their jobs. We can only effectively offer relief and vital support to vulnerable victims of modern slavery if our employees themselves are happy. In a recent survey, 91 percent of the charity’s 92 staff members said they love working for the Medaille Trust. The survey also showed that 82% of staff felt that the organisation is run on strong values and principles.
Going forward, I want to pay tribute to all our employees who work hard every day to change the lives of victims of modern slavery. Thank you, and I look forward to the Medaille Trust doing amazing things in the year ahead.”
