Sunday Times 100 Best Small Companies To Work For 2010

Breast Cancer Campaign has made the Sunday Times 100 Best Small Companies to Work for 2010. We were ranked at number 91 in the list, but was singled out for the third highest rating (94 per cent positive) of staff who say that they make a difference. It is the very first time we have entered so it is a great credit to all our staff, trustees and supporters that we have succeeded in making the grade and are in such good company. Our shared vision is to beat breast cancer; this motivation and affinity with the cause gives us all a clear focus and commitment and brings us close to our supporters through our values.

Clearly I am delighted and very grateful to everyone – but I am not entirely surprised at the high score for staff feeling that they make a difference. Strangely it took 9/11 to bring home to me how lucky I am to do what I do. In the days that followed many of my friends and colleagues in the corporate sector found it very difficult to motivate themselves when such devastation can happen almost in a heart-beat. For us, the number of women dying of breast cancer on the 11th of September was the same as on the 10th of September and unless we do something about it will be so on the 11th of September in years to come.
