The Regenda Communications Team
North West housing provider Regenda has been recognised as one of the best places to work in the country according to a recent survey by PR Week.
Regenda, who manage over 12,000 homes across the North West, was ‘Highly Commended’ in the ‘Best in-house PR department’ category – the first time the award has been opened up to encompass in-house departments.
Employees at Regenda had to work outside the average 35 hours per week for only one event this year, and benefits include flexible working hours, travel and computer loans, free massages, a cycle to work scheme and free counselling and legal advice.
Training is also available on demand and there is a six-month training programme for all managers. Team members are appraised annually, formally reviewed at six months and have monthly one-to-ones with their manager.
Louise Douglas, Head of Communications at Regenda said ‘The enthusiasm across the group is infectious and it is a joy to come into work every day. It is especially pleasing to be recognised as this is the first year the awards have been opened to in-house teams.’
The awards process began in August when UK PR consultancies and in-house PR departments were invited to enter. Nearly 100 submissions were received and were judged by a panel comprising of CIPR CEO Jane Wilson, PRCA CEO Francis Ingham and PR Week’s associate editor Katie Magee.
