One Vision Housing are number one
One Vision Housing (OVH) in Merseyside is the best company to work for in the UK.
That’s according to the prestigious Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to work for list 2012. A place in the list is highly respected as it ranks Britain’s best companies to work for by staff satisfaction survey results.
Astonishingly, One Vision Housing not only came on top in all eight factors in the survey (My Manager, Leadership, My Company, Personal Growth, My Team, Fair Deal, Giving Something Back and Wellbeing), but every single one of the 70 questions that staff answered. OVH were also named as the most improved organisation in the list and won a special award for giving something back to their communities.
OVH Chief Executive Roy Williams said: “To be named as the best company to work for in the UK is an exceptional achievement. The accolade is even more special because it’s an achievement based on the results of staff feedback. To make the Sunday Times top 100 list is a massive feat in itself. To be number one is nothing short of extraordinary.”
Judges were blown away by the motivation and passion evident at OVH - 95% of employees are proud to work for the organisation and 92% of staff love working there.
One Vision Housing IT Support Officer Chris Conlon said: “I only joined the organisation at the end of last year but was immediately hit by the feeling in the office. People are passionate about their jobs and are focussed on making a difference to their customers.”
OVH’s placing follows the news that they have also been acknowledged as one of the best organisations in the country by Best Companies Ltd who provide an independent assessment of success on the key factors proven to contribute to high employee workplace engagement.
Last month, One Vision Housing received the top Best Companies ‘three star’ rating in a ‘Michelin style’ accreditation system that recognises organisations by star status.
Three stars is classed as extraordinary by the awarding body.
The Sunday Times list of the 100 Best Not-for-Profit Organisations to Work For is a fusion of last year’s 100 Best Places to Work in the Public and Charity Sectors and the not-for-profit bodies.
