Aspire is thrilled to announce that the charity has ranked 27th in the Sunday Times 100 Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to work for. Aspire has consistently placed in the top 50 not-for-profit organisations and this year was no different.

The rankings are based on the opinions of employees who score the charity on how they feel it meets certain criteria. These answers are then compared to the responses of other not-for-profit organisations.

Questions included how employees feel about the head of the company and its senior managers, levels of wellbeing, opportunities for personal growth, how they feel about their line manager and team members, and how happy they are with pay and benefits.

The best performing category for Aspire was "Wellbeing" which is defined by "how staff feel about the stress, pressure and the balance between their work and home duties". Aspire ranked in the top 10 not-for-profit organisations in terms of employee wellbeing. Staff do not feel that deadlines are unrealistic or that they are under too much pressure to perform well.

Other impressive takeaways included the fact that 86% of staff felt proud to work for Aspire and an incredible 91% of staff agreed that Aspire is run on strong values and principals.

Jonathan Austin, Best Companies, says “we'd like to congratulate Aspire on being one of The Sunday Times Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work For 2019. You should be extremely proud of your achievement and the fact that employees at your organisation feel it is such a fantastic place to work.”

Brian Carlin, Aspire CEO, says, "We are delighted to have consistently placed in the top 50, year after year. We are particularly proud of being 10th in the Wellbeing category.  It is a privilege to be the CEO of Aspire and work with such a dedicated workforce providing support to people paralysed by Spinal Cord Injury."
