UK’s The Sunday Times 75 Best Places to Work in the Public Sector (2010)

Sponsor: The Sunday Times

“The present economic climate could easily have been used as an excuse not to take part, yet more than 200 organisations competed for a place on this list and the views of 45,000 employees have been canvassed, making it by far the most detailed survey of its kind. The result is a directory of best employment practice in the public sector and a guide to the happiest and most dynamic workplaces to be found in Britain's schools, local authorities, hospitals and primary care trusts, police forces and statutory bodies. I congratulate all the organisations who have made this year's list. Your achievements in difficult circumstances are worthy of recognition and put you in a strong position to ride out the turbulent times ahead.”

“The Sunday Times list of the 75 Best Places to Work in the Public Sector is compiled from the views of employees and the policies of employers. Using a methodology designed exclusively for the British workplace, it identifies best practice defined by performance in eight key indicators of workplace engagement, covering staff opinions on their leadership, their manager, immediate colleagues, pay and benefits, wellbeing, their organisation's willingness to give something back, people's personal development and overall sense of affiliation with their employer. The views of more than 45,000 public sector workers across more than 200 public sector bodies of all sizes informed the rankings — part of the wider Best Companies to Work For survey of more than 275,000 employees.”
