Our 50th anniversary celebrations are off to a flying start with the announcement that Scottish Ballet has been recognised as one of the best companies to work for in the UK.
In a year that celebrates our 50th anniversary, we have been listed as 59th in The Sunday Times Top 100 Not for Profit Companies to work for in 2019; a testament to our engagement and commitment to making Scottish Ballet a great place to work.
The list, which is published annually, recognises the UK’s top 100 companies to work for in the UK based largely on a national staff survey, which is judged according to performance in eight key areas: leadership, well-being, giving something back, personal growth, fair deal and how members feel towards their manager, company and team.
The award of a one-star accreditation was based on the responses to a national staff survey that was informed following the strategy. Showcasing the very best in workplace engagement, the survey found that 95% of Scottish Ballet staff felt proud to work for the organisation.
We have been commended for the introduction of a People and Wellbeing Strategy, aimed at improving both physical and mental wellness of all employees.
