Midland Heart recognised for outstanding commitment to workplace engagement

10th Jan 2023 - Corporate news

We’re delighted to have secured a two-star accreditation from employee engagement specialist Best Companies, recognising the pride we take in being a great place to work.

A Best Companies two-star accreditation is the second-highest standard of workplace engagement and is awarded to organisations that demonstrate an ‘outstanding’ commitment to their workforce.

As well as continuing to provide high quality, affordable homes and our excellent standard of service, we have been working closely with colleagues to make improvements to our workplace. The introduction of new Colleague Champions will allow for the employee voice to be even more present when decisions are made by the organisation.

Following feedback from our colleagues, we have created dedicated career development programmes for both Black and Female colleagues, as well as funded development plans for over 100 colleagues.

Executive Director of Corporate Resources, Baljinder Kang, commented, “We’re very happy to be starting the year with a two-star accreditation from Best Companies. The award is a recognition of our efforts over the past year to become one of the most inclusive places to work in the UK and one dedicated to the personal and professional development of our people. We will continue to grow and develop our people, and create an environment where everyone is supported and encouraged to achieve”.
