Success in Best Business Poll

7th March 2006

11032006_LeonardCheshire1.jpgCompanies and charities from the care arena performed well in yesterday’s Sunday Times Best Companies list.

Leonard Cheshire had become the first charity to be ranked among the top 20 big companies to work for in The Sunday Times’ Best Companies list. The annual poll is widely considered as the benchmark for employee satisfaction, with companies being graded from the responses of its workforce.

In a further boost for the charity it was ranked top in companies that were seen to give back most to the community and society as a whole. It was praised for its commitment to staff training, and for it’s staff’s active interest in their work, with everyone of the 8170 compliment taking part in charitable activities on behalf of the organisation.

Leonard Cheshire was joined in the top twenty by the care group Barchester Healthcare, who ranked second in the top 20 big companies list. It is the first time a care group has performed so well in the list.

There were also several Health and Social care companies ranked in the top 100 mid sized companies with BUPA, Hallmark Healthcare, and BrunelCare all making the grade. St Ann’s Hospice and Badenoch & Clark made the top ten, coming 9th and 7th respectively.
