Lewisham Homes has been recognised for Excellence in the Third Sector at the Investors in People Awards. These awards represent global recognition of the best people management practices among Investors in People accredited businesses.
On winning this category, Lewisham Homes Board Chair Ainsley Forbes said:
“We are proud to win this award as an organisation which strongly values staff development. 88% of our staff think that Lewisham Homes is a great place to work. From running initiatives including study sponsorship, mentoring and encouraging employees to lead on innovation, we have seen tenant and leaseholder satisfaction continuously increase.”
Lewisham Homes is responsible for managing over 18,000 homes on behalf of Lewisham Council and received the award due to its clear understanding of the vital role that supporting and developing its employees plays in delivering an excellent service to residents. By investing in its people and paying them a real Living Wage, Lewisham Homes also helps Lewisham succeed as a community.
The Lewisham ALMO achieved Gold-standard Investor in People accreditation last year.
