We've been voted 'Employer of the Year' in the Multiple Sclerosis Society Awards 2016. The judging panel were looking for organisations that create an excellent working environment for staff with MS, and show consistent awareness and consideration of the fluctuating nature of the illness. But, rather than employers just offering flexible working hours and more regular breaks from work, the winner would demonstrate going above and beyond normal practice to support staff with MS.
