We’re extraordinary! Golden Lane Housing (GLH) has just received a 3 star accreditation from Best Companies and listed as number 8 in The Sunday Times 100 Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work For 2018.
We have received the highest accolade of workplace engagement by Best Companies and jumped an amazing 12 places in The Sunday Times 100 Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work For from the previous year.
The fabulous awards ceremony was held in London last night. Excitement filled the room with over 1,000 people watching the countdown begin. Ten members of staff were on the edge of their seats as we passed last year’s achievement – and then it was revealed we were listed as number 8!
Alastair Graham, director at GLH said, “We are absolutely delighted! We’re an extraordinary organisation to work for and have been listed as number 8 in The Sunday Times Best Not-For-Profit Organisation to Work For 2018. We are one team with a passion to make a real difference to the lives of people with a learning disability. Through engagement, we’ve implemented changes and improved our way of working which has benefited staff and our tenants. With further plans ahead, we look forward to continuing this work in the coming year.”
Yasmin, Ben and Stephanie, GLH staff explain:
“I have worked at GLH for just over a year now and have found it so easy to settle in – the team is very welcoming and friendly and everyone is always willing to help whether it’s part of their role or not. I think the You Rock scheme is a great way to show recognition for hard work. GLH is dedicated to supporting and developing staff – I have been encouraged and supported through my studies, and You’ve Got Talent programme is a great way to showcase the top talent each year,” Yasmin Stafford, finance assistant.
“GLH has improved over the last 12 months. The leadership team has inherently raised standards across all areas. They understand the critical areas of compliance within GLH which has been further emphasised by the increase in the forthcoming budget,” Benedict Lane, compliance officer.
“GLH is a people focused organisation putting them at the forefront of everything it does. From people with a learning disability to their family members and carers to the staff within the GLH team – everyone is important. It’s a fantastic organisation to work for,” Stephanie Mason, development manager.
