Experts deliver glowing verdict as we work towards defeating brain tumours

We're proud of how we do things at The Brain Tumour Charity. We pull together as a team to move towards our goal: defeating brain tumours.

Now we are delighted to announce that the way we work has been rated exceptionally highly by McKinsey, one of the world's leading advisers on organisational effectiveness.

We used McKinsey's Organisational Health Index (myOHI) to assess how well our behaviours at work equip us to implement our strategy of doubling survival and halving the harm caused by brain tumours.

The result was resoundingly positive - both for how effective we are today and for how well our culture matches what our staff see as most critical for future success.

Our overall OHI score was 89 out of 100, putting us in the top 10% of more than 2000 organisations around the world whose staff have taken part in the McKinsey survey. We also ranked in the top 25% for every one of the nine dimensions of organisation health.

Sarah Wilson, a McKinsey consultant who supported us throughout the process, said: “This is an outstanding result -- by far the strongest I've seen in 10 years' work on organisation health and performance. It reflects very well on the pioneering and collaborative culture of The Brain Tumour Charity and its foundations for sustainable success."

We'd like to say thank you to McKinsey, and to all of the incredible supporters who inspire our work every day.
