On Best Companies Day (March 3) it's announced – Broadland District Council is one of the 100 best Not for Profit Organisations To Work For in the country.
The annual Sunday Times competition judges employers across a range of factors on the basis of the anonymous responses of staff. The Not For Profit sector includes the NHS, Schools, charities, housing associations, police, and all councils.
As well as being one of the top 100, the council was also flagged as a ‘One to Watch’ organisation – which recognises achievement across the whole range of sectors.
Phil Kirby, Council Chief Executive, said:
“I am extremely proud of this accreditation. When people are engaged they feel connected to each other and to the aims of the organisation we work for. We all believe in a shared purpose and we all feel that we play an important part in fulfilling it.
“An engaged workforce is more motivated and productive because we all take a pride in what we are doing and we all have faith in our colleagues and team mates around us. I know this leads to better working relationships, greater collaboration and ultimately, a more successful organisation in the work we do for residents.”
