Due to our ongoing commitment to employee engagement, we’ve been awarded a 1-star accreditation by Best Companies – placing us amongst the top 25 housing associations in the country.
This award represents ‘Very Good’ levels of workplace engagement and is recognised nationwide as an indication of a hard-working and highly valued workforce. We were also named as one of the 75 Best Companies to Work For across all sectors in the East of England, placing at 66th alongside some established national brands River Island and Naked Wines.
This is just the beginning though, and we’re aiming to move further up these lists over the coming months and years, with our eyes on that top spot. We know that a valued, engaged workforce leads to a better quality of service for our communities and ultimately, happier residents - which is what we’re all about!
Commenting on the accreditation, our Chief Executive Tina Barnard said: “We are committed to making Watford Community Housing a great place to work so that we can help individuals to succeed and attract the best talent to ensure that we deliver for our residents and communities. We’re delighted to have achieved this excellent result, which reflects the work we are doing to build a vibrant, forward-thinking and customer-focused culture.”
Best Companies is an organisation that measures, improves and awards great workplace engagement. Its ‘Best Companies to Work For’ lists and accreditations are now recognised as the UK standard in workplace engagement.
