High scores in Best Companies to work for survey

Back to News

Posted 1st August 2023

Yorkshire Sport Foundation is proud to share that we have been recognised as having “world class” levels of staff engagement. 

The three-star rating is the highest accreditation from Best Companies, who recognise excellence in the workplace and use feedback from employee surveys. The accreditation builds on the one-star, ‘Very Good’ status we achieved in 2022. 

In the survey, our team told Best Companies that: 

  • 100% are proud to work for us 
  • 100% believe our organisation is run on strong values and principles 
  • 96% love working for the organisation 
  • 85% believe working for us is good for their personal growth 


Best Companies say their aim is to help make places of work better, and that employees who feel truly engaged are happier, more productive, and more invested in an organisation’s success. 

To recognise the very best organisations in workplace engagement, companies are ranked on one or more of the prestigious Best Companies Lists which showcase the very best, nationally, regionally and in their sector. 

Nigel Harrison, Chief Executive Officer of Yorkshire Sport Foundation, commented: “We’re thrilled to achieve the accreditation from Best Companies. 

It’s recognition for the whole team. Everyone helps build and take ownership of ways to make our working culture better. This helps us to be the best we can be for our partners.

“I’m very proud to lead a team of excellent people who have made this possible.” 

Best Companies announce quarterly league tables, allowing organisations to benchmark themselves against others who take part in the process. We will find out where we rank on Friday 18 August.
