Six hospices have been ranked among The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to work for, with two in the top 10.

The hospices, in the top 100 best non-profit organisations to work for in 2018, are Dove House Hospice, Treetops Hospice Care, Haven House Children’s Hospice, Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, St Gemma’s Hospice and Julia’s House.

Dove House Hospice in Hull is the highest ranked hospice at number five. This year also marks their 25th anniversary. Commenting on the accolade, Dr Anna Wolkowski, chief executive, said: 

“I am delighted that the hospice has been recognised in this way, however it is our dedicated and talented staff and volunteers that make this charity an excellent place to work. For that I am very grateful, and I am incredibly proud. It is a real tribute to all our managers and teams who have built a truly remarkable charity in which to work, one which places our values based culture at the heart of everything we do and are.”

Treetops Hospice Care in Derbyshire is number sixth, appearing in the top 10 for the second year in a row. Chief executive George Cameron, said:

“I am truly delighted that Treetops Hospice Care has achieved such an accolade. Though this is really gratifying, it is in some way not surprising, as we have a team of employees whose focus is completely centred on delivering exemplary care to those who use our services. This is manifested in their attitude to their roles and especially to each other.

Haven House Children’s Hospice in Essex is ranked at number 27. Mike Palfreman, chief executive, said:

“We are over the moon about this award which recognises how well we all work together as one team at Haven House. The commitment and pride everyone here takes in our work shines through and is evident in the terrific feedback we get from our families. It is a great place to work.”

Julia’s House in Dorset and Wiltshire reached number 29, and additionally won an award for being in the top 100 for ten years running. Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice in West Yorkshire and St Gemma’s Hospice in Leeds are at numbers 50 and 76 respectively.

The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies collates anonymous feedback from employees at hundreds of UK organisations in a wide range of industries, including public-sector bodies and charities. The companies with the highest levels of employee satisfaction are recognised each year on the prestigious list. This year’s list was announced at a ceremony in London’s Battersea Park.
