Leading landlord among the best to work for
One of the UK’s leading social housing and regeneration organisations has been named as one of the top employers.
Riverside – which manages around 50,000 homes from Irvine to Ipswich – has been named among The Sunday Times Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work For.
Riverside, which employs around 2,800 people, was ranked 88th. Irvine, a subsidiary of Riverside, was ranked 23rd.
Riverside’s Chief Executive Carol Matthews said: “One of our group objectives is ‘valuing and developing our people’ and that’s because we strongly believe that an engaged workforce is key to a successful business.
“We can only deliver better services and provide more homes through the hard work and commitment of our colleagues. By pulling together in the same direction, we can make a real difference to people’s lives.”
The Sunday Times Best Companies and Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work For lists have been derived from entries of 896 organisations. They surveyed over 240,000 employees and carried out an evaluation of each organisation’s key statistics, processes and policies.
To become recognised as a best company, organisations must demonstrate high levels of employee engagement based on a staff survey designed to measure employee engagement across eight factors: leadership, wellbeing, my manager, my team, my company, personal growth, giving something back and fair deal.
