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. 

‘Scottish Ballet forged new ground in 1969, and we continue to promote our positive and pioneering spirit in everything we do. We are delighted to be recognised in the Sunday Times Top 100 Not for Profit Companies to work for, as it is testament to the hard work of everyone at Scottish Ballet.'
