Golden Lane Housing (GLH) is outstanding! We’re delighted to have just received a 2 star accreditation from Best Companies, and listed as number 20 in The Sunday Times 100 Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work For 2017.
Staff took part in the Best Companies survey, giving their view on the ins-and-outs of working life at GLH and how they help people with a learning disability.
Last night, ten members of staff joined 1,100 people at The Sunday Times 100 Best Not-For-Profit Organisations and 100 Best Small Companies to Work For Awards Celebration. As the countdown began, people were eagerly awaiting and the results revealed we were listed as number 20!
Alastair Graham, director at GLH said, “This is fantastic achievement for GLH. We’re an outstanding organisation to work for and have been listed as number 20 in The Sunday Times Best Not-For-Profit Organisation to Work For 2017. Staff have a real passion to work with people with a learning disability to help them to live the life they choose. Having workplace happiness and engagement is important factor in getting the right balance.”
Becky, Gauri and Sam, GLH staff explain:
“I think GLH is a great organisation to work for as the job is so rewarding and I’m empowered to make a real difference to the lives of people with a learning disability. We’re like a big family in GLH, always there to support each other and in 15 years I cannot recall a single day that I haven’t wanted to get up and go to work!” Becky Arrowsmith, housing manager.
“I think GLH is a good organisation to work for because I have interest in the cause of helping people with a learning disability. We work well as a team and are one big family. As I have a learning disability I learn something different every day and have grown in confidence. Enjoy working on projects within the organisation,” Gauri Mannra, receptionist.
“GLH is a great company to work for because everyone comes to work to achieve a common goal – to support our tenants. We are all here for the right reasons and that brings community feeling to work. We all want to help each other. Because we are a small company I feel valued as an employee and genuinely feel I make a difference,” Sam Hollis, housing officer.
