It hasn’t been a great few weeks for tenancy deposit scheme TDS after its HQ was ravaged by a major fire, but the organisation has now received some good news.

The Sunday Times has voted the company into its Top 100 Best Not for Profit Organisations list, placing it at No.63 ahead of several august organisations including the Chartered Management Institute, Chester Zoo and the Salvation Army.

TDS, which is the only not-for-profit government-backed provider of tenancy deposit protection in England and Wales, is currently looking for new premises after its Hemel Hempstead HQ was gutted after being engulfed fire in early January.

“We’re incredibly proud to have been named in the Sunday Times 100 best not-for-profit companies to work for,” says TDS CEO Steve Harriott (pictured, above).

“The award is a culmination of our colleagues’ hard work and determination. Each of our [them] is aware of the positive attitudes that we aim to develop across the whole company [and] maintaining TDS’ position as the leading tenancy deposit scheme in the UK.

“As a not-for-profit, we believe strongly in reinvesting in the company, our services to landlords, agents and tenants, our colleagues, and the wider community.”

The list, which includes the National Trust, is dominated by dozens of housing trusts and associations.

TDS  achieved a score of 677.2 compared to winner Transforming Lives for Good which achieved 824.6. Organisations are scored on how employees feel about their managers, management, well-being, benefits and the organisation’s positive impact on society.
