WE are is delighted to announce that we have won the ‘Most Effective Financial Risk Management Approach’category at the National Housing Federation (NHF) Housing Association National Accountancy Awards (HANAA).
Held at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham, the awards ceremony saw us collect the award after impressing the judges with the company’s strong focus on risk management. We were also shortlisted in the ‘Achieving Value for Money’ category.
Designed to celebrate excellence and efficiency in housing associations and provide great customer service, the judges found that we had gone ‘above and beyond planning for future risks and, for example, started preparing for welfare reform more generally, well in advance of its implementation.’
David Hart, Director of Resources, said: “I am very pleased that the judges recognised the hard work of the board, the management and the staff to implement a comprehensive risk management programme across the company."
Summing up our entry the judges commented: “This entry impressed as the organisation had a strong focus on risk management, not just financial but operational too.
“The risk management culture is embedded in all its operations, and the results are evident through their strong financial performance, consistently delivering value for money and financial capacity to build more homes. They have established a methodical and robust approach to identifying those tenants that may be affected and try to provide the support they need.”
