Best Companies

n-compass carries out an annual staff survey, an opportunity for all staff to comment on, and contribute to, the ongoing development of our organisation. This year the process was different in that it was carried out through the Best Companies Scheme. For the first time we have had the opportunity to benchmark our results against other ‘not for profit’ organisations nationally. So we not only learn more about what colleagues views of working for n-compass are, but we have also received detailed feedback from the scheme on how we perform compared to other like-minded organisations.

We recently heard that we have been awarded their highest accolade of 3 Stars! – in their words n-compass has ‘extraordinary’ engagement with staff. What a wonderful reflection on how we work, the pride we have in our services and colleagues commitment to our vision. A 3 star Best Companies award is more than just an plaque to put on the shelf however, it will allow us to really scrutinise areas where we could improve and continue to make n-compass an organisation that invests and commits to its staff in the same way we do those that benefit from our services.

It doesn’t stop there…the scheme is linked to the ‘Sunday Times Top 100 Not for Profit Organisations to Work For’, a list of the great and the good in our sector published every year. We won’t find out until February 2019 if we have made that top 100 list.

Barbara Aird Chairman for n-compass NW said ‘ this is a really proud moment for n-compass and it has been a big team effort. We look forward to analysing the data and looking at where we can further improve... and of course we look forward with anticipation to the Top 100 announcement in February.’
