Freebridge Makes Sunday Times Best Companies List
Tony Hall, Freebridge’s Chief Executive with 2015’s award
Freebridge Community Housing has made the ‘Sunday Times 100 Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work For’ list for the third year in a row.
The West Norfolk based housing and community organisation, which featured on the list in 2014, and 2015 has once again appeared in 2016. Freebridge has also retained its One Star accreditation meaning the organisation is ‘very good’ at employee engagement’
Through the Best Companies process, Freebridge employees were able to share their thoughts on the organisation through a confidential survey. In addition, Freebridge also completed an extensive questionnaire which provided an overview of its working practices and culture.
The process assesses companies on themes such as Leadership, My Team, Wellbeing, Personal Growth, Giving Something Back and My Manager.
Freebridge will find out exactly where it is placed on the ‘Sunday Times 100 Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work For’ list in February 2016.
Tony Hall, Chief Executive said: “It’s a fantastic achievement that we continue to be an organisation featuring on the Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work For list.
“This is our third year in a row and it’s very much down to our employees, who make Freebridge such a great place to work. Our employees are constantly demonstrating that they live the values we hold dear as an organisation. In turn this means that our customers receive the best service that they can and people enjoy working here.”
“We are very proud that we can represent west Norfolk in this way, and the accolade goes a long way to our vision of Supporting A Better West Norfolk.”
Freebridge will now use the feedback from the Best Companies process to improve employee satisfaction and continue to make Freebridge a place where people want to work.
