Sunday Times Top 100...again!!!

Sunday Times Top 100We are absolutely delighted that for the second time in three years Vibrance have made it on to the Sunday Times list of the Top 100 Best Companies To Work For.

In 2010 we entered for the first time and we very proud to come 36th. This year, at the presentation event on 22nd February we heard that we had bettered this placing and were 31st on the list.

This is a significant achievement in a period of difficult financial circumstances and what is very pleasing is that we scored particularly highly in some very important areas. Here are some of the headline comments from Sunday Times:

  • Staff find their training of great personal benefit, scoring 79% positive, the third highest ranking
  • More than a quarter of the 335-strong workforce have been with Vibrance for at least a decade and they say the experience they gain from the job is valuable for their future (79%)
  • People feel managers deal with issues rather than dodging conflict (69%, in seventh place) and bosses listen (73%). Everyone feels fairly treated too (73%, third)
  • Paul Allen, Vibrance's Chief Executive, is regarded by the workforce as a leader with sound moral principles (80%).
  • Staff say senior managers truly live the values of this organisation (70%)
  • Staff say there is a strong sense of family within their teams at Vibrance (74%)

We came 31st overall but did even better in the following categories:

  • 16th in the My Company category
  • 18th in the Leadership category
  • 16th in the My Manager category

We are all very proud to work for a Sunday Times Top 100 organisation and believe this award will continue to improve our reputation and profile in the care sector.
