One vision award
A Liverpool housing association has taken first place in the Sunday Times Best Non-Profit Organisations to Work For list for the second year running.
One Vision Housing's achievement was recognised at an awards ceremony in London on Wednesday, finishing 28 points ahead of its closest rival.
Roy Williams, One Vision's chief executive, said: “Our organisation has witnessed a lot of change in the past 12 months, particularly with the set-up of our new group structure. So it’s great to see that our staff morale and pride in the workplace has continued.
“To triumph over every other public sector organisation in the country is nothing short of brilliant, and to sustain our position over a two year period is unheard of, we’re very proud of what we’ve achieved."
The Sunday Times Top 100 list ranks Britain’s best companies using the findings of staff satisfaction survey results, which focus on factors such as health and wellbeing, leadership and career progression.
One Vision achieved top scores in 66 of the 70 questions and ranked second in the other four.
Staff gave CEO Roy Williams 94 percent positive score, while 93 percent said they were very proud to work for One Vision, and 84 percent that if they were offered another job they wouldn’t leave.
One Vision Housing formed in 2006, following a stock transfer from Sefton Council, and has invested £300m in its 11,700 homes in the past seven years.
