STOCKPORT Homes Group has leapt up the rankings in the Sunday Times Top 100 list for 2019, landing as third best not-for-profit organisation to work for.
Last year, the organisation was ranked in the 40th position; hardly surprising, then, that the ALMO also received an award for ‘best improved’. It also earned special recognition for being on the list for the tenth consecutive year.
The placing is determined by an anonymous survey of all staff at participating organisations throughout the country. It considers factors such as good management, social principles, and staff wellbeing.
“We are thrilled to have achieved our highest place ever – and be named as the third best place to work in the not-for-profit sector,” said Helen McHale, Stockport Homes’ chief executive.
“It is a recognition of our dedicated team and I thank all the staff that made this possible. It’s a magnificent achievement to move up 37 places in a year, be recognised as the best improver and be given a special 10-year award celebrating our continuous decade of being a top place to work. It is this approach that allows us to continue to deliver excellent services and transform lives.”
Chair of Stockport Homes’ board, Robin Burman, added: “What a fantastic start to the year. The team across Stockport Homes Group work incredibly hard to deliver excellent services to the customers and communities that we work in – and thoroughly deserve this recognition. Ten Years in such a prestigious list is real recognition that we have a great culture and are an employer of choice.”
