Last year we took part in the Best Companies survey to find out what our staff really think about working here. We were delighted to get the results earlier this year.
Everyone in the business had a chance to participate and about 67% of our colleagues gave feedback.
We are proud that, based on our own colleague's opinion, we’re ranked in the top 100 not for profit companies nationwide, and in the top 50 companies in London to work for.
The categories the Best Companies survey covered were:
Giving something back
My team, and
Getting a fair deal.
Overall star award
This the first year the Group has participated in the Best Companies survey. Overall, Best Companies awarded us a prestigious 1 star award.
A 1 Star accreditation from Best Companies is a significant achievement that shows we are an organisation which is taking workplace engagement seriously. Awarded to organisations with a BCI score of at least 659.5, the 1 Star accreditation signifies 'very good' levels of workplace engagement.
We've got this far but we've got our sights set firmly on the top of the tree and we are aiming to achieve three star status in future surveys.
Part of our Corporate Plan
One of the focuses of our corporate plan is our commitment to the people who work at the Group. Without our dedicated and passionate colleagues, we wouldn’t be able to offer great services to our residents and communities. We are clear about our commitment to be a great place to work.
