This latest recognition reflects Broadland’s focus on increasing employee engagement. This year the housing association has also moved up 17 places to number 61 in the Sunday Times Best Non-Profit Organisations to Work For.
Michael Newey, Chief Executive, said:
We’re really pleased to see independent evidence of our growing levels of staff engagement. We strongly believe that there’s a direct link between engagement and our effectiveness as a landlord. We’re also seeing that that our focus on engagement is paying off in terms of our ability to recruit and retain highly skilled and motivated colleagues.
Broadland engages employees throughout the year through regular ‘Challenge and Change’ programmes, to promote staff development. Broadland also offers options for flexible or agile working, and provides birthday leave and a paid day off for charity work among its employee benefits.
