Based in Matlock, Derbyshire, the association manages 5,500 homes across the county and Leicestershire, and its 162 employees put it in the top 20 among small organisations, scoring 78% positive for questions on My Team.

Featured Workplace Factors

Giving Something Back

61% of staff agreed

I am happy with the pay and benefits I receive in this job

Acclaim Housing Group state that due to the dispersed nature of their workforce, often social events are combined with work events. Last year during the Olympics, a number of sport themed events were held, one example being a Family Fun Day in Harborough and Lutterworth. Members of the team took part in traditional sports day activities such as family tug of war, football and sack races. Colleagues really enjoyed spending time together and as this event was combined with a customer event, they valued the opportunity to meet and talk with customers. The organisation's customer services team, who often are at the end of the phone but don't meet customers face to face, really found the experience to be valuable.
