Birmingham Hippodrome Listed in Top 100 Not-For-Profit Organisations


The Birmingham Hippodrome has been ranked 76th in the 2014 Sunday Times list of Best Not-For-Profit Organisations To Work For. To create the list, the Sunday Times surveyed 250,000 employees at 897 different organisations, making this the UK’s largest workplace engagement survey.

With 111 members of staff and many more casual employees, the Hippodrome is amongst the UK’s largest presenting venues. The Birmingham Hippodrome Theatre Trust is an unsubsidised, independent charity with a volunteer board of trustees. In a survey conducted by the Sunday Times, 89% of employees felt they were making valuable contributions to the theatre’s success, and 84% said that they felt proud to be working there. 88% were happy with the theatre’s environmental management and commitment to reducing its energy usage, and a majority of staff have good working relationships with their managers, feeling able to speak honestly and openly with them.
