Wolverhampton Homes has been named by The Sunday Times as one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK – for the third year running.
Announced yesterday (25th February), the housing company, which manages more than 23,000 council houses in Wolverhampton on behalf of the city council, was ranked in the top 50 places to work in the annual list published by The Sunday Times and employee engagement specialists, Best Companies.
Overall, Wolverhampton Homes was ranked 42nd in the national list which recognises and celebrates the best places to work in the UK.
Wolverhampton Homes employs more than 740 members of staff who help look after more than 23,000 homes in the city.
Hundreds of companies from across the country took part in the Best Companies survey this year where employees were asked to rate the company they worked for through in-depth questionnaires.
Wolverhampton Homes were awarded an overall two-star rating from Best Companies which classes them as an ‘outstanding’ company to work for when it comes to employee engagement.
Lesley Roberts, Chief Executive, said:
This really is a wonderful achievement for everyone connected with Wolverhampton Homes, from my team of dedicated staff to the council and our tenants.
It’s a difficult time to be in the public sector but what this result shows is that we’ve got a team of dedicated professionals who really care about the work they do, who care about making a difference and who are committed to helping those in our city. I take an enormous amount of pride in knowing that”.
Wolverhampton North-East MP and Shadow Housing Minister Emma Reynolds MP added:
I want to congratulate Wolverhampton Homes on again being ranked as one of the Sunday Times Top 100 employers. It is a tribute to all of the people who work at Wolverhampton Homes that it has yet again been recognised as one of the best companies to work for in the UK in this prestigious list. As Shadow Housing Minister, I am delighted that Wolverhampton Homes also provides such an excellent service to their tenants.”
