ENCOURAGING STAFF TO think creatively and embrace change at Grand Union Housing Group is the key to its success. Since it was founded in 2008, the mid-size association, based in Cranfield, Bedfordshire, has grown considerably and employees have an opportunity to develop even further. They believe that what is expected of them is made clear (a 70% positive score) and care if their employer succeeds or fails (88%). The housing association achieves its best overall result in the Fair Deal category, and it's not hard to see why. Almost 40% of its 289 employees earn between £25,000 and £35,000 and 216 of them take advantage of the increasingly rare perk of a final-salary pension scheme. www.grandunionhousing.co.uk
