Based on staff feedback, Vantage has been awarded a Silver Medal as an employer already Achieving Impact in workplace wellbeing.
In our very first year of entering, our employee feedback has placed us 40th out of 119 employers and seen staff rank the trust above the national and public sector scores for people management, culture and engagement, wellbeing initiatives, knowledge and skills!
Some of the achievements staff have highlighted in their responses:
- 72% of staff are motivated by the workplace culture at Vantage Academy Trust.
- 81% feel Vantage Academy Trust has implemented their feedback.
- 79% feel Vantage Academy Trust consults staff on how the organisation should be run.
- 82% feel Vantage Academy Trust consults them on how to promote wellbeing at work
- 71% feel that staff at Vantage Academy Trust have good awareness and knowledge of mental health
Another key strength that was conveyed throughout the survey results was the standard of support delivered by line managers and the strong relationships that have been built across all teams.
We are incredibly proud of the results achieved through this survey, which we undertook as a deep-dive into one of the few areas for development highlighted in last year’s Best Companies Survey, where we achieved an outstanding result as a World Class employer, ranked 7th in the country for Education and Training.
We always aim always to be at the vanguard of innovation, employee consultation and creating the best workplaces possible across our schools. Moving forward, we will take this feedback to implement further enhancements to our policies, training and workplace culture to ensure that Vantage remains one of the best places to work in the UK!
