All staff survey, May 2020

“over 90% of staff feel that this is a great place to work”

Recently, we undertook an all staff survey to understand what our staff like about working here, what they’d like to improve and to understand their views to help shape our ongoing strategy to make this a great place to work.

We saw a fantastic response rate of 86%. This level of engagement gives us a really clear picture of what our staff feel and what are next steps should be.

We were very happy to see that over 90% of staff feel that Selwood Housing Group is a great place to work.

From our 121 interviews we also know that staff really rate our flexible working approach and that staff feel positive about how we’ve responded to the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic.

Why is Investors in People an important accreditation for us?

Our Group chief executive Barry Hughes shares “We know that investing in our people and giving staff the opportunity to fulfil their potential means we will deliver excellent services to our customers."

Our people are our most important asset. They not only deliver essential services, but they build relationships, they live in and know our communities, they innovate, and they keep our customers safe.

Investors in People provides us with a way to measure how we are supporting and developing our people and to ensure we continually develop and innovate in this area in line with our business strategy.
