We've made The Sunday Times Top 100 Companies to Work For list
Our University has been placed in The Sunday Times Best 100 Companies to Work For list in the not-for-profit sector for the first time, as well as receiving a two-star accreditation for outstanding employee engagement.
The list is compiled from feedback from an independent survey which was sent to a section of colleagues across the University earlier this year. Thank you to those who took the time to respond to this survey. The area we performed most strongly on was a sense of pride in working for this organisation.
This fantastic news is confirmation that our University truly is a remarkable place to work. We will find where we come on the list of 100 companies in February.
Vice-Chancellor Professor Sir Keith Burnett said: “I am delighted that the University has been recognised in this way, however a university is only as strong as the staff who teach students, carry out research, and who support vital work from running our libraries and laboratories to student accommodation and IT provision.
“It is our dedicated and talented staff from around the world who make this institution a place of high educational standards and an excellent place to work, and for that I am very grateful to you all.”
Jonathan Austin, CEO and Founder of Best Companies, said: "I would like to congratulate the University of Sheffield on their outstanding achievement. This year it is encouraging to see that more and more organisations are recognising the value of employee engagement and are willing to benchmark themselves against the best to ensure they are offering their employees the best possible experience. Organisations like the University of Sheffield have continued to focus on their employees and have been rewarded with an engaged workforce who tell us that this is a great place to work."
