Best Companies accreditation is awarded to the best employers across the UK based on the views of colleagues across a range of areas, including things like learning and development, workplace culture and leadership.
The data from the employee engagement survey each year is used by Stonewater to ensure that they are on the right track as an employer, check how colleagues are feeling, and drive improvements to make Stonewater an even better place to work.
Nicholas Harris, Chief Executive at Stonewater, said: “Being recognised in this way isn’t just a boost to our current efforts – it also helps us retain and attract the best talent for the future, by demonstrating we’re a great choice of employer.
“I’m delighted to say that once again we’ve been named as one of the Top 25 Housing Associations to work for, coming in at number 6, as well as one of the Top 100 Best Companies to work for in the Southeast, Southwest, East and West Midlands. Earning our second star is something we can all be proud of, driven in part by our incredible 86% response rate from colleagues.
“It’s a collective effort that represents the hard work and commitment of everyone and is particularly notable against the backdrop and many challenges of the pandemic. It’s also a reflection of the way our teams collaborate, across the whole organisation, to serve our customers and deliver our vision of ‘everyone having the opportunity to have a place that they can call home’.”
