Hospice is top work place

Have your say

ONE of Bury St Edmunds’ best-known causes has been named one of the best places to work in the country.

The Sunday Times placed St Nicholas Hospice Care at number 67 in its list of 100 best not-for-profit places to work list.

The results were gathered from a staff survey carried out at the end of last year.

Jane Doughty, personnel director at the hospice, said: “As you can imagine, we are delighted to have received this accolade.

“It is lovely for the staff here to have this news, but it is also a fantastic achievement for the Hospice.”

The survey focused on eight key areas including leadership, personal growth, wellbeing and pay/benefits.

The hospice was also given a one star rating by Best Companies to recognise its ‘first class’ employee working environment.
