Wales & West Housing Group recognised as an extraordinary employer
The Wales & West Housing Group has been recognised as an extraordinary employer in an annual survey of the UK’s best companies to work for.
The Group, made up of Wales & West Housing, Castell Ventures and Cambria Maintenance Services, has been awarded Best Companies 3* accreditation.
This is the highest award possible in Best Companies recognition programme, which measures employee engagement, and the three organisations will now be able to display the Best Companies 3* accreditation logo.
2020 will be the first year in which all three Group companies – Wales & West Housing Association, Cambria Maintenance Services and Castell Ventures (Care and Support, Cleaning and Catering) – hold the accreditation, recognising their status as an outstanding employer.
Anne Hinchey, Wales & West Housing Group Chief Executive, said: “I am hugely proud of this achievement, which is testament to how much people matter in all of our Group companies.
“This Best Companies 3* accreditation is particularly pleasing given that the Wales & West Housing Group is included for the first time.
“It’s a real team effort and has only been made possible thanks to the hard work and dedication of every employee – we could not do or be who we are without everyone’s contribution to making a difference.”
Wales & West Housing has previously held the highest 3* accreditation, most recently in 2018, but this is the first time the organisation has entered the survey as a Group.
More than 640 employees were surveyed as part of the process.
“It’s a real team effort and has only been made possible thanks to the hard work and dedication of every employee”
