East Anglian Air Ambulance Charity Named as One of the ‘Best Places to Work’ in National Awards.

East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) is celebrating national recognition after being named as one of the best places to work in the prestigious Sunday Times awards.

The Sunday Times and WorkL, who are experts in employee experience, have joined forces to recognise the very best organisations with consistently high levels of positive employee experience in the UK today. The Sunday Times ‘Best Places to Work’ awards also celebrate success, excellence, workplace engagement and commitment to employees. They are solely based on an employee feedback and engagement survey.

EAAA is one of the most recognised and trusted charities in East Anglia, providing lifesaving critical care 24 hours-a-day by air and road, and was one of just seven charities to be named as a top employer on The Sunday Times ‘Best Places to Work’ 2023 list.

Sarah Atkins, Director of People and Culture at EAAA says: “As an organisation that cares deeply for its staff, we are so proud that EAAA has been named as one of the best places to work in the UK. It helps us to do our very best for our volunteers and the communities we serve.”

EAAA specialist doctors, critical care paramedics and pilots bring advanced skills, equipment and medicine directly to patients, in the fastest time possible. The charity delivers advanced pre-hospital emergency medicine across Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk, bringing hope to the most seriously ill and injured people in East Anglia.

Sarah continues: “97% of staff who responded to the Sunday Times survey stated they feel proud to work for EAAA, where our core values are respectfulness, accountability, integrity, support and evolution. These values continue to be embedded in every aspect of our charity to shape our first-class employee experience and workplace culture, and we are thrilled this has been recognised by The Sunday Times Best Places to Work awards.”

Chris Longcroft, EVP Publisher, The Times and The Sunday Times, said: “The Sunday Times Best Places to Work awards recognise companies that create a happier and fulfilling working environment for all, by fostering engagement from their teams, yielding great business and performance in return. Wishing all of those companies who made the grade this year many congratulations.”

Lord Mark Price, Founder of WorkL, said: “Many Congratulations to this year’s winners of the Sunday Times Best Places to Work, powered by WorkL. You should be very proud of your achievement of being recognised as one of the very best places to work in the UK. I have little doubt that these awards will help with both retention of your existing employees and drive recruitment of the best candidates into your organisations in the year ahead.
