South Liverpool Homes named one of UK’s best workplaces for women

Published: 1 July 2021

We're delighted to announce that we have been recognised as a Best Workplace for Women™ by Great Place to Work UK®, ranking 2nd among 114 UK-based organisations who made the list.

This recognition comes on the back of all our employees completing the Great Place to Work® survey last year which is designed to measure employee engagement, including the extent to which women across South Liverpool Homes reported a consistently great workplace experience. This considered factors such as their daily experience of innovation, inclusivity, company values, and the effectiveness of their leaders.

Julie Fadden, Chief Executive of South Liverpool Homes said: “We’re absolutely delighted with this result. The past 15 months have been tough for everyone, with millions of people having to balance their job and personal lives in a way they have never had to do before. Focussing on colleague wellbeing was a key priority for us. Addressing workloads, changing working patterns to suit family life and offering 1-2-1 counselling to those who were really struggling all helped to sustain a healthy work environment during a very difficult time for colleagues.

“We’ve worked hard to create a special culture here at SLH and are committed to ensuring all colleagues are able to reach their full potential, no matter who they are or what they do.”

Some of the many benefits of working at South Liverpool Homes includes a truly flexible approach to working hours, practical support for positive mental and physical health, generous holidays – including birthday leave and an annual awards event to celebrate colleague successes and achievements.

Here’s what some SLH colleagues told us in the 2020 Great Place to Work survey:

“I am only in my first year of employment, but find this company excellent to work for, especially during the Covid-19 situation. The support from management has been fantastic. Couldn’t fault it. It does feel like working for a family. All staff are really friendly and everyone went out of their way to make me feel comfortable.”

“The benefits, culture and the real sense that the organisation cares about your wellbeing, especially during the current situation. I feel all staff work together as a family. And, there's endless opportunity to progress your skills.”

“South Liverpool Homes has always been a great place to work but during Covid-19 restrictions they have really shone as an employer. The support, positive messages and the lovely treats we have received as employees has been amazing.”

Great Place to Work® UK is a consultancy specialising in workplace culture, helping organisations to create exceptional, high-performing workplaces where employees feel trusted and valued.
