 Great places to work

PlaceShapers member The SLH Group has topped the Sunday Times 100 Best Not For Profit Organisations to Work For for the third year running.  In total 18 PlaceShapers made the list.

SLH Group’s win replicates the success last year for the 3,700-home association, which employs 97 people. SLH chief executive Julie Fadden, who this year’s wins the award for Best Leader, said: “It is the tiny things that make a difference. It’s about staff going home feeling they’ve had a good day. We always do what we can for the people we serve and those who serve them.”

The Best Companies research is the largest of its kind. The surveys ask staff to rate their organisations across eight engagement factors, from leadership to pay and rewards.

PlaceShapers chair Sinead Butters said: “ The pride and passion of staff for their work underpins the ethos of PlaceShapers. Our staff know what a real and lasting impact their work makes. They ensure PlaceShapers deliver the homes that are so badly needed and services which build  aspiration, social mobility and regeneration for our residents and wider communities.”
