Missing People has been placed 18th in the annual Sunday Times "100 Best Not-for-profit organisations to work for" list 2016. The charity has also been awarded the Best Companies 2 Star accreditation which represents an outstanding level of staff engagement. This is the first time that the charity has submitted an entry for consideration.
Jo Youle, Missing People CEO said: "We’re thrilled to have made The Sunday Times Best Not for Profits To Work For 2016 and I’d like to thank everyone who makes Missing People such an inspiring place to work. I feel very lucky to lead such a creative and passionate team that goes the extra mile every day and is grounded in a dedication to our mission of being a lifeline when someone disappears."
Cat Cade, HR Manager at Missing People said: "Some of the repeated phrases I hear from new staff, volunteers and guests, is about how friendly and supportive everyone is. And this comes down to our values – ensuring staff and volunteers are proud of what they do and look out for one another, embodying our value to “Be Human”. Some staff and volunteers have even come back to work or volunteer for us, or work in partnerships, or even run marathons for us – “Making Things Happen” even after they have left! Another great area of strength is that we aren’t afraid of new ideas. We look for ways to improve what we are already doing as well as to keep doing the things that are working well. Being able to take risks and give opportunities is an important part of who we are, as captured in our values to “Let Fly” and “Be Future-minded”. And throughout all we do, ensuring we continue to “Be Grounded”- to show belief in what we do and ground our work in compassion for missing people and their loved ones.
I am so proud to be part of this organisation, and elated that there is recognition for this brilliant place to work."
