We are a small friendly team at Christian Action Housing, and an ambitious one. We wanted to make sure that our Association is a great place to work, a flexible, fair employer and inclusive and welcoming for all our team members.
We decided to take part in the Best Companies Survey for 2020/2021. A leader in workplace engagement, the Best Companies listing has been running for 20 years and highlights organisations who are working hard to engage and motivate their employees. We wanted to hear from our team about where our strengths lay, and what we could do better.
Our survey closed in March 21 and we were grateful that 78% of our staff took part in the survey and gave us their frank and unvarnished views. As an added benefit we agreed that the Association would donate £10 per survey completed and were delighted to be able to send £790 to the Enfield Nightingale Cancer Support Charity. As a local Association, we really wanted a local charity to support and were touched to be able to make a difference to the great work they do within our local community.
We are proud to have achieved the following accreditations;
- 1 Star Very Good To Work For’
- ‘Top 25 Housing Association To Work For’
- ‘Top 50 Mid-Size Organisation to Work For’ in London
Our team told us they feel a strong sense of family here at CAHA, and are committed and proud to work for the Association. We offer great flexibility and work life balance, and our employees care about each other, and our customers. To get even better we are busy putting in place improvements to how we communicate and work across teams, ensuring we offer competitive salary and benefits, and supporting our leaders and managers to be the best they can be.
We hope to survey again in a couple of years’ time – and we are aiming for an outstanding score!
