The team at Havebury Housing Partnership are celebrating after climbing the Sunday Times list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For.
The affordable housing provider was ranked 68 in the 100 best not-for-profit organisations seeing an upward move of five places from the previous year.
Compiled from the views of its 170 employees and the company policies, Havebury was recognised for its optimistic team who believe they can make a valuable contribution to its success (80 per cent positive).
Feedback from the survey included 73 per cent of employees saying they are happy with the balance between their work and home lives and that their jobs don’t interfere with their responsibilities at home.
The rise of five places could be a result of an increase in positive feedback regarding the pride at working for Havebury.
Three-quarters of the company believe managers take an active interest in their wellbeing and say there is a strong sense of family in their teams.
Karen Mayhew said: “Our greatest asset is our team of employees. They do a wonderful job, sometimes under difficult circumstances since housing can be an incredibly emotive issue.
“Having a happy workforce is important for the success of the organisation as it means tenants in our 6,000 homes can be assured of a consistent, high quality service.”
Havebury, which has offices in Haverhill and Bury St Edmunds, is a charity and not-for-profit association. For more information about Havebury, visit www.havebury.com.
