A Great Place to Work in Adult Care Work

At this time of nationwide appreciation for people who work in social care, Dimensions is proud to be one of very few social care organisations that have been awarded by the independent “Great Places To Work” institute. 

Great Places to Work” is the world’s largest study of workplace cultures. It is an audit of the practices that create an outstanding workplace culture as well as a survey of employees’ views of their employer. 

As a result of feedback from our colleagues, Dimensions has been recognised as one of the UK’s best workplaces in the ‘super large’ category by the Great Place to Work Institute three years in a row. We placed 23rd in the 2021 UK Best Workplaces, 13th in 2020 and 17th in 2019.

That might be all you need to know, but for those who wish to find out more you can view the complete dataset for the fullest possible picture of what our colleagues say about working for Dimensions – including how we do on values, ethics, career development, diversity and much, much more. 

Colleagues told us

As part of the survey, our colleagues were also asked “Is there anything unique or unusual about this company that makes it a great place to work?” 
 
Here’s a flavour of what they said, anonymously: 

  • “You can be yourself management not looking over your shoulder” 
  • “Since working for Dimensions I can say that it is very person-centred in the way which staff are trained to deliver support.” 
  • “My manager’s actually care about me as a person and that is with everyone” 
  • “I feel that this company supports personal and professional development opportunities really well.” 
  • “The company truly care & have the people we support at the heart of everything we do” 
  • “I love how this company and staff really make a difference to people’s lives for the better and always strive to do better. Always give staff support what they need when needed.” 
  • “I feel appreciated and valued as a person from a BAME background. I have been given equal opportunity to progress.”
