Great Places to Work

“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.

Dimensions is proud to be one of very few social care organisations that are members of the Great Places To Work programme.

On this page you can find our Trust and Engagement scores. There’s space for improvement, but overall we’re pleased with them. About 2500 of our colleagues completed the survey.

In the interest of transparency, we’re also publishing the full research findings. So if you want to know what Dimensions colleagues think about diversity, about career development, about our values and ethics or a dozen other critical characteristics of a great workplace, you can download the data here.
