A Great Place to Work in Adult Care Work

At this time of nationwide appreciation for people who work adult care work, Dimensions is proud to be one of very few social care organisations that have been awarded by the independent “Great Places To Work” institute. 

“Great Places to Work” is the world’s largest study of workplace cultures. It’s an audit of the practices that create an outstanding workplace culture, as well as a survey of employees’ views of their employer. 

As a result of feedback from our colleagues, Dimensions has been recognised as one of the UK’s best workplaces in the ‘super large’ category by the Great Place to Work Institute four years in a row. We placed 25th in the 2022 UK Best Workplaces, 23rd 2021, 13th in 2020 and 17th in 2019.

‘Is there anything unique or unusual about this company that makes it a great place to work?’ 

Here’s a flavour of what they said, anonymously:

  • “Since working for Dimensions, I can say that it is very person-centred in the way which staff are trained to deliver support.”
