Southern Housing Group is one of the largest housing associations in southern England with 28,000 homes for over 72,000 people and offer a range of services to their customer communities such as: employment and financial advice; apprenticeship schemes with partner working; and grants to their customer communities so they can benefit from projects they want to accomplish. Employees believe that the group is a great place to work because of the organisation's fundamental purpose and role 'to provide quality homes and develop communities where we house'. Many colleagues find this especially rewarding and fulfilling because they see their part and role as a social contribution to make the lives of the people they house and communities they serve better. That is why they are a business with social objectives. New recruits join an organisation which strives to embrace diversity and personal individuality. The wellbeing of employees is of high importance to Southern Housing Group. Their wellbeing approach is holistic and supported by the senior leadership. They have an annual wellbeing calendar which outlines wellbeing initiatives and plans for the year. These have included annual free health checks for all staff, sessions on sleeping well, resilience workshops, reiki sessions and giveaways. Southern Housing Group also have a dedicated email address for all things wellbeing, and a wellbeing group which meets regularly to plan and discuss further wellbeing initiatives and activities.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
