We have been recognised again as one of the best companies to work for in the UK. Securing 75th place in ‘The Sunday Times 100 Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work for 2020’.
The Sunday Times Best Companies lists are recognised nationally and are based on a survey of all employees. Nearly 80 per cent of our workforce completed the survey last autumn which looked at areas such as leadership and management, personal wellbeing, commitment and engagement to the company as well as pay and benefits.
The results of the survey also saw us accredited as a one star employer by Best Companies, which represents ‘very good’ levels of workplace engagement. We were named as a one star employer for the first time in 2018.
We manage over 10,000 properties across Essex and have over 300 employees. The survey found that 92 per cent of our employees believed they could make a valuable contribution to the success of the organisation. 86 per cent said they loved working for the organisation, and 83 per cent said it had a strong social conscience.
Paul Edwards, our Deputy Chief Executive said: “We’re absolutely over the moon to be named in the best companies list for a second time. It’s incredibly important to us that our employees feel CHP is a great place to work.
“We have a fantastic team of highly talented employees, who show huge commitment to delighting our customers. We want to continue to recruit and retain talented people and have a large programme of support, development and benefits to help us achieve this.”
Receiving recognition from the Sunday Times Top 100 Companies list for a second time is another significant achievement for us. In 2019 we launched our 10,000th home and were named one of the Top 50 biggest builders of homes. We have also maintained the highest possible ratings from the Regulator of Social Housing.
