Our Future Health has been recognised with an Impact 100 Award, placing us among the Top 100 most impactful UK growth companies to work for in 2024.

Impact 100

The Impact 100 Awards, organised by Hyer, recognise organisations driving positive change through their work while championing a people-first workplace culture. From over 5,000 companies assessed and 20,000 employees surveyed globally, Our Future Health has been acknowledged as one of the top 100 organisations in the UK truly committed to making an impact, both for the wider world and our workforce. 

Leading the way in health research

Our Future Health is the UK’s largest health research programme. It aims to transform the prevention, detection and treatment of conditions such as dementia, cancer, diabetes, heart disease and stroke. With up to 5 million volunteers right across the UK, the goal is to create one of the most detailed pictures ever of people’s health. 

Building a health research resource at such a large-scale hinges on the commitment and expertise of colleagues across our organisation. With a range of experts spanning data and technology to science and operations, Our Future Health is discovering and tackling new challenges at an accelerated pace.  

Over 1 million volunteers have signed up to take part in Our Future Health in just over a year since the programme went live to the public. We have also made rapid progress in making health data available to researchers. This achievement would be impossible without the infrastructure put in place by colleagues at Our Future Health. 

Dr Raghib Ali, Chief Executive and Chief Medical Officer of Our Future Health, shared his excitement: “I’m thrilled to see Our Future Health recognised as one of the most impactful organisations to work for. We’re building the biggest picture we’ve ever had of people’s health at a scale that’s never been done before to help researchers make powerful new discoveries about diseases. All of this is only possible thanks to the innovative work and dedication of colleagues across the organisation whose work will enable everyone to live longer, healthier lives.”   

Looking ahead

The Impact 100 Award not only recognises Our Future Health’s achievements but also the challenges ahead as we aim to reach 5 million volunteers. This award reinforces our commitment to building a leading workplace where people can rightly be proud that their work is making an impact on the future of healthcare.
