Broxtowe Borough Council is a Top Employer

27/09/2016 - Broxtowe Borough Council 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 Council was placed at number 38 and was the only Council to appear in the index.

The scheme highlights housing organisations with a caring, creative and can-do culture that supports innovation in the workplace.  Results are based on staff responses to an in-depth survey carried out by Inside Housing magazine's research partner Dolphin Index.

Councillor Eric Kerry, Chair of the Housing Committee said:

"The Council is delighted to have been recognised in the index for the second year running. Creating a positive culture, which enables our team to feel empowered in the workplace, helps encourage them to contribute ideas and innovate change. This ensures that the Housing Service is best placed to meet the challenging and changing needs of our tenants to a high standard."

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."

Mark Brown, chief executive of Dolphin Index, said:

"We can give our tenants and employees a much better life. People can have much more enjoyable lives at work in ways that drive more successful organisations."
