YMCA Together Named Best Charity To Work For In The UK

YMCA Together has been named the Best Charity to work for in the UK at the inaugural Best Companies Live virtual event 2022.

The prestigious accolade was awarded to the Liverpool based charity, which provides 109,500 bed spaces annually across the region, after it was recognised as an organisation that ‘truly excels, with world class levels of workplace engagement’.

Broadcasted live from Media City in Salford by TV presenter Dan Walker, YMCA Together were also crowned the 8th Best Company to work for in the UK in the mid-sized organisations category, which featured the very best organisations across all sectors locally, regionally and nationally.

Chief Executive of YMCA Together Ellie McNeil said: “We are delighted to have been named the Best Charity to work for in the UK, especially given that there are so many fantastic and highly respected charity organisations also on the list. Our teams have been amazing throughout a difficult couple of years and this accolade shows that together we have looked after everyone’s wellbeing.

“Last year marked the 175th anniversary of our founding and saw the organisation honoured by Liverpool City Council with the Freedom of the City. It was such a big year with so much positive news, despite the impact of the pandemic, and it drove home just how fortunate we are to be able to keep delivering vital services to our communities.”

The Best Companies Live event attracted an estimated viewership of 55,000 people and was streamed live on a specially designed platform. The day featured a full programme of discussion and conversation on subjects including Wellbeing, Giving Something Back, Leadership, Personal Growth and The Future of The Workplace.

The awards use a multi-step model to determine its annual scores and accreditations as part of a rigorous and thorough process that includes a staff-wide survey and analysis.

Ellie added: “YMCA Together is a truly value driven organisation - an organisation that is committed to being the best possible employer and in turn, when our teams are happy, they can provide the best possible care and support to the people we work alongside. This award is dedicated to our teams, for their kindness, tenacity and commitment to being the best they can be.”
