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.
