Local cancer charity, Big C, has been awarded gold accreditation as a Best Employer Eastern Region 2021.
Best Employers Eastern Region is a biennial programme comprising an employee survey provided by co-founders ERAS Ltd, that measures employee engagement, company culture and development, across Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex. Big C was also further recognised receiving the ‘Alex Pearce Award for Most Improved’.
The judges’ comments were, “Big C scored well in terms of overall engagement and survey participation and the judges gave them solid scores in all categories.
Unsurprisingly, the Big C operates a clear set of values and has used the motivational maps to understand the engagement drivers of its employees. Its standout is its commitment to inclusion and diversity, particularly in encouraging the recruitment for those with disabilities and focus on learning and individual progression.”
Dr Chris Bushby, Chief Executive at Big C, said, “This accreditation celebrates and reflects the teamwork, passion and commitment shown by everyone at Big C, as we together meet our mission to provide outstanding and constantly improving cancer support services, when and where they are needed. The 2021 results demonstrated a 25% increase from the 2018 survey scores which is very rewarding given the challenges that we, along with many other organisations across the region, have been facing through the pandemic as a charitable organisation and team.
“We believe in putting our people at the centre of our organisation and this recognition will be valuable in strengthening our employer brand and helping us to attract the best future employees as we grow.”
