Medaille Trust has been ranked as the 4th best charity to work for in the UK for 2023.
The Best Companies League Tables for the first quarter of this year were revealed today. Medaille was also ranked nationally as the 10th best mid-sized company to work for in the UK and the 12th best company to work for in the North West.
Today’s top rankings follow Medaille being rated earlier this year as an outstanding company to work for in 2023. A Best Companies staff survey last December revealed that 85% of staff felt engaged and satisfied. The survey also revealed that 8 out of 10 workers loved working for Medaille Trust and were excited about where it is going. Additionally, 9 out of 10 employees said the organisation is run on strong moral principles.
Responding to today’s rankings by Best Companies, CEO of Medaille Trust Garry Smith said “This achievement is a celebration of the commitment and hard work of Medaille’s incredibly resilient and amazing staff. The work we do can be intensely emotionally draining because we are dealing every day with survivors of modern slavery who have often been through severe psychological trauma. The least we can do as an organisation is to ensure the conditions are right for staff to feel happy and satisfied in their jobs. Over the last year we have listened to staff and placed a major focus on staff well-being. Staff initiatives announced last year included a 10% pay rise for employees receiving under £30,000, a day off for your birthday, a day off for volunteering, a staff benefits package and a Menopause Café.
I want to say a heartfelt thank you to our incredible staff who make Medaille Trust the caring and compassionate charity that it is”.
