South Liverpool Homes named fifth best medium-sized workplace by Great Place to Work
Published: 29 April 2021
South Liverpool Homes (SLH) has been named fifth best workplace by Great Place to Work® in recognition of its ground-breaking colleague culture and its response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
SLH faced strong competition in the medium size category for UK-based organisations at a virtual ceremony that took place on 29 April. This is the fourth year that SLH has participated in Great Place to Work® having placed 30th in 2018, eighth in 2019 and 12th in 2020.
The result is based on the outcome of the UK’s Best Workplaces™ survey which was published today. 100% of SLH’s employees completed the survey commissioned by Great Place to Work®UK, a consultancy specialising in workplace culture, helping to create exceptional, high performing workplaces. The result was also supported by an in-depth ‘culture audit’, which this year, focussed on how SLH continued to deliver a top-class experience for colleagues and customers in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic.
SLH achieved an overall trust score of 97%, compared to 90% the previous year, with 100% scores in the ‘fair treatment’ and ‘leadership’ categories. What’s more, 100% of colleagues said that SLH is a Great Place to Work®.
Julie Fadden, Chief Executive of South Liverpool Homes said: “The unique circumstances of the past year put incredible strain on workplaces across the UK and the world but this result is testament to the resilience of our workplace culture and that of every single colleague who helped create and maintain it.
“We've had the ultimate curved ball thrown at us but, once again, colleagues have shown their pride, passion and sense of belonging.
“To be up there with some of the most outstanding organisations in the UK makes us immensely proud but it’s a testament to how our wonderful colleagues have come together to support each other through one of the hardest years in living memory.”
Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work®UK said: “We’re delighted to announce that South Liverpool Homes has just been recognised as a 2021 UK Best Workplace™.
“This is a significant achievement especially during such a challenging year and is due to the bold acts from their leadership team and their ability to continually prioritise and cultivate a positive employee experience.
“As a recognised UK Best Workplace™ for four years in a row, we look forward to seeing how South Liverpool Homes continues to maintain a culture of trust amongst its workforce”.
Earlier this year, SLH was once again recognised by Great Place to Work® as a Centre of Excellence in Wellbeing, demonstrating their commitment to creating a happier and healthier work environment for employees.
