As the Trident Social Investment Group (TSIG) embeds its Social Investment ethos throughout the business, this week it concentrated its energy on its staff, through the delivery of a series of enlightenment workshops/programmes aimed at nurturing their desire for adventure and personal growth.
For Trident to fulfill its mission as a social investment group, all staff across the organisation need an in-depth understanding of the social investment ethos and approach that will be woven into all the group’s activities. This includes housing, care and a variety of support services that are value for money and will result in improved quality of life for residents and increase their life chances.
The sessions were designed to equip staff with greater knowledge and appreciation of the group’s direction over the next five years, raising awareness of why Trident is taking this course of action/path and providing everyone with the necessary tools to enable them to fully embrace the commitment of the organisation.
Some of the interactive sessions were specifically tailored to engage staff in shaping the delivery of services, whilst others encouraged them through a range of activities, to be all that they can be as individuals, team players and leaders.
As well as providing homes to 6,000 people across the Midlands, many of whom are the most vulnerable, the recently transformed Trident Social Investment Group includes housing associations, charities and social enterprises placing a social investment ethos and collaborative community working at its core.
John Morris, CEO of Trident Social Investment Group said:
‘Our people are our greatest asset and we are reliant upon them to deliver our social investment agenda. Through their commitment and dedication, we can ensure that we to meet the needs of our communities. All services to alleviate disadvantage are under increasing pressure and as welfare reforms taking their toll. Our staff are Trident’s front line to deliver services that are value for money whilst exceeding residents’ expectations, and will help to maintain vibrant and cohesive neighbourhoods’
Samantha Southall, Trident’s Corporate Services Co-ordinator said:
