Updated 21 May 2021: Broadland is now one of the top 10 housing associations to work for!
We are delighted to have received 2-star ‘Outstanding’ accreditation by Best Companies for our employee engagement.
As an organisation to work for, Broadland Housing is included in:
- the 25 Best Housing Associations
- the 75 Best Companies in the East of England
- the UK’s 100 Best Large Companies.
Michael Newey, Chief Executive, said:
This is fantastic news. We are now a 2-star organisation, which is our highest ever Best Companies accreditation.
I’m really pleased that this is how our staff have assessed us. The Best Companies survey is 100% confidential, which means the leadership group and our Board members can believe that this result is accurate. Looking ahead, the top of the scale is 3 stars (‘World Class’), so there is always room for us to improve.
To achieve the 2021 accreditation, Broadland invited all staff to complete the Best Companies confidential b-Heard Survey. Employees scored a series of statements about their wellbeing, pay and benefits, personal growth, their team, the leadership and much more.
Broadland’s positions in the 2021 lists will be announced on Friday 21 May 2021.
What is engagement?
Best Companies explains the importance of employee engagement:
When people are engaged they feel connected to each other and to the aims of the organisation they work for. They believe in a shared purpose and feel they play an important part in fulfilling it.
An engaged workforce is more motivated and productive because people take pride in what they are doing and have faith in those around them. This leads to better working relationships, greater collaboration and ultimately a more successful organisation.
