For the third year in a row, Gateshead College has been named among Britain’s 100 Best Not for Profit Organisations to Work For, after its commitment to its employees has achieved national recognition.
It is the only college in the North East to make The Sunday Times Best Not for Profit Organisations to Work For 2012 survey and is one of 10 North East regional organisations to feature.
Principal Richard Thorold said: “We want Gateshead College to be the employer of choice, so it’s vital to gauge how employees feel about working here.
He added: “Having an engaged workforce is key to business success, when times are hard it is even more important to take care of your people, they are our most important asset and it is this which will give us our advantage.
“The survey reaffirms that we are doing the right things and doing them well.
“However, we won’t be resting on our laurels as we will continue to look at areas which can be improved.”
