Orbit recognised as Top Employer

Orbit has been recognised as an Inside Housing Innovation Index Top Employer for 2016.

The Top Employers list includes those housing organisations that outperform the UK norm – an average score from hundreds of UK organisations across all sectors. This year 45 organisations were recognised on the list.

The scheme highlights housing organisations with a caring, creative and can-do culture that supports innovation in the workplace. Orbit is a values-based business which makes a profit so that it can deliver its purpose of Building Communities.

‘Profit for a Purpose’ is about maximising efficiency and resources through a commercial approach; harnessing insight and innovation; and investing in our people to create a dynamic culture of trust, enterprise and achievement.

Emma Maier, editor-in-chief of Inside Housing magazine said: “Housing providers are facing huge challenges and innovation is crucial to being successful in the future. The results of the 2016 Innovation Index highlight those that are serious about creating a culture that engages employees and supports them to innovate and the organisation to succeed.”

Results are based on staff responses to an in-depth survey carried out by Inside Housing magazine’s research partner Dolphin Index.
