World Vision among top ten UK charities to work for

World Vision UK has been hailed as a top charity by its workforce, climbing to ninth place in the Sunday Times’ prestigious ‘Best 100 Not-for-Profit Organisations’ list.

The ranking is based on anonymous staff surveys on issues such as 'giving something back', leadership, work –life balance, wellbeing, and fair deal.

The charity has soared steeply up the list from 52nd place last year, thanks to positive feedback from its workers.

Adrian Blair, World Vision UK’s Director of Organisational Effectiveness , said:

"World Vision UK is an inspiring place to work and we’re delighted to see how happy our staff are here. Valuing people runs right through our organisational culture.

"It lives and breathes in the UK as much as in our work with children and communities overseas. 

"Our staff are incredibly committed to our mission of transforming children's lives in the world's hardest places, and this award is a true recognition of all our staff and their contribution to our organisation."

More than 1,300 staff from nominated organisations attended a celebration to hand out the awards.

Issues included in the survey included:

  • Leadership: How employees feel about the head of the company and its senior managers
  • Wellbeing: How staff feel about the stress, pressure and the balance between their work and home duties
  • Giving something back: How much companies are thought by their staff to put back into society generally and the local community
  • Personal growth: To what extent staff feel they are stretched and challenged by their job
  • My manager: How staff feel towards their immediate boss and day-to-day managers
  • My company: Feelings about the company people work for as opposed to the people they work with
  • My team: How staff feel about their immediate colleagues
  • Fair deal: How happy the workforce is with their pay and benefits
